"A wonderfully simple book that's simply wonderful for reading aloud." -BOOKLIST (starred review) Now in a dual Spanish-English edition!
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 Patricelli's 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.
Wouldn't it be amazing if swinging on a swing provided a view of not just the playground, but of outer space? In this inventive, brightly colored picture book, a little girl begs to be pushed higher, and finds herself checking out the vista from airplane level and beyond. With chunky, colorful illustrations and minimal text.
