Jabari is inventing a machine that will fly all the way across the yard! But making it go from CRASH to WHOOSH will take grit, patience, and maybe even a little help from his sister.



I borrowed this book. It was so good I want to buy. Everyone would like this story. It made me think of me. Hehe

I really liked the teamwork that the brother and sister showed together. I liked it when they were trying together to make the plane fly.

I like this book because he was trying his best at building flying machines. He tried so many times but it didn't work so he got so mad but he kept trying. He put so much effort and the final time he finally did it. It was so good. Jabari took a deep breath when he was stressed. He also listened to his father when he encourage him to receive help from his sister.

I liked the story. I thought it was good the way he kept trying to make his invention work and had his little sister help him. I would tell my friends this book is a nice story to read.

I like how he built the ramps. I liked all the characters. I liked how it kept on crashing, he got cross and wanted to cry. Then he held his little sisters hand. His little sister squeezed his hand and they tried again and they did it!! I would tell my friends to read this book.

My little brother really enjoyed this. I learnt there’s fun in helping each other out and never giving up. I definitely recommend it as I have a little brother and I learnt it’s sometimes better to work with a partner

I liked this book a lot. I was a little bit sad because Jabari wanted to cry when he was sad. I liked Jabari the most, and then his dad. I would recommend this book to others because it was fun.

It tells me child can make an airplane. I like one girl because she was fanny. I recommend it to Japan's people to learn English.

I think why did Jabari fly an airplane. I like to fly airplane because I like airplane. I was recommend it to Jabari because Jabari was serious.

The book is about a boy named Jabari not giving up into doing something he really enjoys and eventually does. My favourite character is Jabari because he doesn’t give up.This book inspired me because it encourages me not to give up. Yes I would recommend this book.

I think is the about jabari build an excellent ramp but it keeps on smashing and crashing. Jabari's sister Nika keep annoying him when he tries to focus on building his craft. Jabari got frustrated. Then his dad came and told him what he should do when he get frustrated. I like jabari's dad because he help him.
