Higher! Higher! by Leslie Patricelli

26 Jun

A little girl is pushed on a swing and on each page has one request: “Higher! Higher!”  She swings so high that she sees the rooftops of buildings, a climber on a mountain summit, and even a rocketship!  At the height of her swing she encounters a friendly alien, whom she greets with a “High Five!”.  This would be a great book to share one-on-one with a young child, building language skills by talking about what the girl can see on each page.  Print awareness might also be increased by pointing out and having the child “read” the word “Higher” as it appears on most pages.
