A Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Book
Three starred reviews (Booklist, The Horn Book, School Library Journal)
One child. One swing. An obliging dad. The inevitable plea to go Higher! Higher! Add Leslie Patricelliís wildly expressive illustrations, and an everyday pastime reaches new heights of humor and whimsy. How high can it go? Higher than a giraffe? Taller than a mountain? Is Earth the final frontier? In this ingenious story of very few words, Leslie Patricelli evokes the giddy glee of being pushed in a swing.
"A wonderfully simple book thatís simply wonderful for reading aloud." ó Booklist (starred review) Available in a dual Spanish-English edition!
