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!

Pushed on a swing by her father, a young girl encourages him to throw her higher! higher!. Along the way, she encounters a number of different people, animals, planes, and even an alien in space whom she high fives. I find the book delightful and playful. The drawings are simple, with obvious and bold lines on top solid and bright colors. We've learned that illustrations like these are good for developing eyes, and this book seems to fit that bill. It's not a storytime book, but one a child will want to repeat again and again. The board book format works for this simple story, but it is larger than an average board book, making it a little too big at times for some children. I'd suggest it highly to toddlers and preschoolers alike. ( )

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. ( )

A little girl and her dad are at the park and she asks him to go higher and higher on the swing. As she gets higher she imagines she see’s a giraffe and then she asks her dad to keep pushing up reaching new heights of fun and fantasy. She imagines she is above the city and then the mountains until she is in the sky next to a plane. The little girl continues to ask her dad to push her until she sees an alien. She comes back to earth on her swing and her and dad go home. ( )

A little girl asks her father for one wish: to be pushed higher and higher on the swings! Without using many words, “Higher! Higher!” repeated on most pages, the illustrations are the star of this board book, telling the story from the very first flip from the front cover to the last. The bold and colorful illustrations capture the playful imagination of young children who dream of soaring as high as the mountains, as airplanes, and even high enough to meet an alien in outer space, and the journey back to the ground. As the little girl joyfully ascends, there are picture clues to suggest where she is heading next. A captivating read aloud that will satisfy the active imagination of toddlers who have playground adventures of their own. ( )
