Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

With a simple, rhyming text and action-packed artwork, this picture book will appeal to young preschoolers, who will delight in the surprise turnaround on every double-page spread. Well, I’m a bug. I’m a bug. I’m a snug little bug, and I’m sleeping on a jug. Until I see a frog, and I . . . JUMP! says a fat-bellied bug, who flies off just in time to escape a leaping frog. Then it’s the frog’s turn to narrate: I’m a frog in a bog, and I’m sleeping like a log, until I see a cat, and I . . . JUMP! The story follows a similar pattern as the cat jumps from a hound, the hound from a croc, and so on until the final scene with a whale, who decides to end the tale. Even after kids have figured out what is coming, they will enjoy the animals’ shifts in power roles, all depicted in lively drawings, rendered in thick black lines and strong, bright colors against blank white space. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Hazel Rochman

Hi everyone! My name is Scott M. Fischer and I am the author/illustrator of JUMP!

What a lot of folks find surprising is that 'Jump' was actually a song long before it was a book! So I thought it would be a hoot to upload a video of me performing JUMP for the kiddies! (You get to see the whole book in this video too!) Remember to put your jumping shoes on!! Thanks everyone for the support!

A good children's librarian is never satisfied. Never content with his or her lot. It doesn't matter how many great read aloud picture books we've culled for our storytimes. Like Captain Ahab we're on the search for "the one". That great picture book that'll leave `em dead in the aisles (not literally . . . that would be a bit dark). We prowl the ALA Conventions, hunt the bookstore shelves, and sniff through professional journals never stopping, never ceasing. Our work is never done. In the course of my own searching, I stumbled on a little book of no extraordinary physical note. Jump! by Scott M. Fischer sits quietly on a shelf. No spangled doodads or pop-up whizbangs explode when you open it. No tinny tunes or scanimation wonders draw you in. It has words. It has pictures. It has pictures with words. It also has a beat and you can dance to it. Find yourself cornered at a three-year-old's birthday party and you have to read them something fun? Heading up your library's next toddler storytime and you need a book to get a crowd riled? Grab yourself some Jump! then, my friend. It's hep. It's hopping. It's happening to boot.

It starts, with a bug. "Well, I'm a bug. I'm a bug. I'm a snug little bug, and I'm sleeping on a jug. Until I see a frog, and I . . . . JUMP!" So it begins. The bug now gone (escaped, don't worry) the frog picks up the narrative, sleeping on a log, until a hound comes along and, you guessed it, the frog jumps. Various animals attempting to nap midday find their slumber consistently interrupted by other animals that may wish them harm. The cat leaps at the frog, the hound goes for the cat, the croc for the hound, the shark for the croc, and finally the whale for the shark, after which he ends the whole tale with a mighty "SPLOOSH!

My grandson has loved this book since he was 6 months old. He is now two and still loves it. Each page has only a few words and teaches about the names of different animals. I incourages child participation because it repeats the words " and he jumps" when the frog sees each of these animals.

We got this book out of a Cheerios box and like it so much we are buying a hard copy. Our 1 1/2 year old son loves it and we enjoy reading it to him. Now whenever he tries to "jump" we start a game of saying the book where ever we are because we have it memorized.

So why buy the book if we already have a free copy? Because we believe in supporting the work of Authors/Artists in the hopes that they will continue to do more. Thanks Mr. Fischer!

Love this book! It's my favorite children's book ever; I was lucky enough to receive a free copy in a box of cereal. My two year old loves this book too, but ripped a few pages out of it. While searching online if I could purchase a second copy I came across the YouTube video of the song. My daughter loved it. It is sung with a very different rythem than I read it to her but she smiled the entire time. I love that this book has bilingual text!!! And cute illustrations. Will be buying a couple of copies as gifts I know a few preschool aged kids who will love this.

Great book for kids of all ages! My grandmother bought this book for when any of her great grand kids come to visit and they ALL love it. The oldest one is around 9 and the littlest one (mine) is 18 months. My oldest (now 2 1/2) had a speech delay and we could not get her to say any words. This book put an end to that. With the exaggerated "And I... JUMP" at the end of each page, she began shouting JUMP with us! We read the book so many times that I memorized the whole thing in a matter of days. Anything to hear her talk, right? Now, at 2 1/2 she can quote most of the book herself. Very engaging book that I highly recommend.

We adore this book!!! My four year old daughter is so tickled by the many animals and their Jumping adventure. The watercolors are bright and friendly. Every time I read the book to her she then loves to recite it back to me, it has such a wonderful lyrical quality. Once she heard the song from the story (shown above) she was completely hooked!

"Jump" is the most requested book in the house right now for my two children and now the most requested song too! Get Jumping!

This is one of my two-year-old's favorite books--so much so that we bought copies for several friends for their birthdays this year. The story has a nice rhythm and rhyme scheme, cleverly repetitive without feeling repetitious. The pictures are evocative and cute, without being cutesy. The best part about the book, though, is watching my child act out the "sleeping" and the "jump" for each of the animals. This is a perfect interactive toddler book.
