I love this little picture book! It is very cute and entertaining for both young children and parents. The illustrations are fun with bright colors and adorable cartoon characters that the book only needs a few words.

I liked the book, "Higher! Higher!" by Leslie Patricelli. This book is a great book for small children because of its illustrations and word choice. While this book only consists of two sentences: "Higher! Higher!" the images provide the plot and tell the story. I like that the images show a rather realistic image of a girl and her surroundings. I think that if the images were more realistic they would not be as eye catching to the reader. I think that the simple word choice, of only one word is approachable and relatable to a reader. Many have experienced saying "Higher! Higher!" while being pushed on a swing as they want to soar into the clouds. The big idea in this book is that you can go "Higher! Higher!" but at the end of the day your family is always back on earth to hug you and support you.

great read aloud and for perspective! I think this book is great to see a "bigger picture". ( )

This is for a very young reader but it is so fun. Little kids always like to tell you how high they went on the swing and this is all about that. The illustrations are silly and so fun!

This is a very cute board book for young children that describes the adventures a little girl has as she swings higher and higher on a swing. She sees balloons, planes , rockets and meet aliens! Young children will love this book. ( )
