Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-Well-known for her captivating board books, Patricelli brings her simple text and crayon colors to the next age level. As an adult pushes a pigtailed girl in a striped sweater and socks on a swing, the child calls out: "Higher! Higher!" The ride gradually takes her from a giraffe's-eye view, to a mountaintop, to an airplane, and finally high enough to trade high fives with a one-eyed, green alien who floats on her own swing among the stars. The pictures then regress to a vantage point that allows readers to review the stages of her upward climb all at once, then return to the playground for a hug and the final word: "Again!" The repetitive text is ideal for new readers, and the cartoon paintings, though spare, provide plenty of room for imagination. An excellent choice to share at storytime.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Hand-lettering and cheerful cartoon-like acrylics reinforce the childlike feel of the book, while the sensibilities are preschooler-perfect, from the mix of security and adventure to that ubiquitous high five.
--The Horn Book (starred review)

The repetitive text is ideal for new readers, and the cartoon paintings, though spare, provide plenty of room for imagination. An excellent choice to share at storytime.
--School Library Journal (starred review) Patricelli once again proves she is a master of demonstrating for very young children the wonders of a good imagination.
--Kirkus Reviews
