9780689821929: JoJo's Flying Sidekick

When Master Kim announces JoJo is ready to take the test for her yellow belt, butterflies start fluttering in her stomach. JoJo loves Tae Kwon Do, but can she really do a perfect flying side kick and break a board in two? Her family and friends offer all sorts of advice: "Do a little shuffle to chase the jitters away," says Grandaddy. "Yell 'KIAH!' at the top of your lungs," P.J. advises. "Why don't you visualize your technique?" Mom suggests.
But how can JoJo ever hope to succeed when she's still afraid of the creepy bandit tree outside her bedroom window? JoJo needs to find a way to turn her fears into success, and she soon realizes there's only one person who can help her do that -- herself.

Book Description SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Original ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was a day when Max didn t feel like talking to anyone. He just sat on his front steps and watched the clouds gather in the sky. A strong breeze shook the tree in front of his house, and Max saw two heavy twigs fall to the ground. So begins this story of a young boy s introduction to the joys of making music. Max picks up the sticks and begins tapping out the rhythms of everything he sees and hears around him . . . the sound of pigeons startled into flight, of rain against the windows, of distant church bells and the rumble of a subway. And then, when a marching band rounds Max s corner, something wonderful happens. Brian Pinkney s rhythmic text and lively pictures are certain to get many a child s foot tapping, many a youngster drumming. Bookseller Inventory # BZV9780689821929
