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.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—A girl enjoys being pushed on a swing by her dad. The higher she goes, the more imaginative she becomes. "Higher! Higher!/¡Más alto! ¡Más alto!" becomes her mantra as she flies past tall buildings, skims past mountain peaks, and catapults into space. As she swings back down to Earth, she arrives safely into her father's arms, asking to do it all over again. Patricelli's simple, bold lines and bright, saturated colors convey the excitement the child's experience. The side-by-side English and Spanish text is perfect for reading aloud although the illustrations really do the talking and make viewers soar.—Shannon Dye, Peoria Public Library, AZ
