🏎️ Meet Jack. He doesn’t like to talk much, but he LOVES things that zoom, knows everything about trucks and excavators, and most of all, he LOVES peanut butter sandwiches.
🧠 However, Jack doesn’t like to chat, he hates loud noises, and is often scared to try new things, particularly new food.

💟 Jack and his friend (unnamed but with a physical disability in a 🦽) have been friends for years, and together, they love each others differences and support one another (‘While some of the other kids make fun of us, Jack and I only ever see each other as cool’ 🙏🏻)

🦓 On this ‘best day ever’ Jack accompanies his sisters, his friend and his zookeeper Mother to feed the animals. Jack is a wealth of knowledge about each animal (facts galore!) but the noises the animals make are SO loud.

🦁 In order to cope and self-regulate, Jack begins to eat the same vegetables as the zoo animals to block out the noise, unknowingly he’s trying new things and food! In the end, Jack shows his fearlessness (after trying all that new food!) when he meets the 🦁 (even when his excitable flapping scares them).
🧠 This story would be an invaluable 📖 in any classroom or home library 👏🏻 It’s beautifully written by @gabriellebassett_author and illustrated by Annabelle Hale. This story seamlessly weaves in themes of friendship, neurodiversity, trust and food aversions.

Miss 🐓 5 & 7 asked some really insightful questions during and after the story, and it created some excellent opportunities for post book discussions relating to shared experiences around differences and neurodiversity.

Jack’s Best Day ever will be available from 1st May 2023, to purchase in good bookshops or online. We thank @woodslanebooks for sending this copy for possible review 🙏🏻
