Gravity is invisible, far-reaching, and mysterious. Most adults don’t understand it, so why should kids? Now they can, by reading Why Can’t I Jump Very High? Prasad’s clear prose gives a good explanation of gravity as well as examples of how it works which children can try out on their own. Simonnet’s artwork makes the text very clear. This would be a great book to have in the house or in the classroom.
