The use of onomatopeia enlivens the story of Jasper.

PRAISE for Jasper’s Jumbled up Words.
“A delightful and gentle book to illustrate persistence to toddlers and preschoolers.” Helen Christie, Designer.

Processing words encourages thinking and problem solving, and helps a young child to develop relationships. It is the basis for learning to read and write which underpins so many other skills. (Mother of twins)

The message that we need to listen, learn and share respectfully, ask questions of a young child is important in good communication. Jasper’s story is heartfelt and sensitive. (Grandparent)
