"Why Can't I Jump Very High? is an excellent book in applying language arts skills for reading comprehension and writing applications, as well as helping children gain a deeper understanding of the concept of gravity through creative storytelling." - Sharon Janulaw, Director of the North Bay Science Project

"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." - Phil Plait, Author of “Bad Astronomy” and Education Resource Director for the NASA E/PO at Sonoma State University
