Overview

And what will we spy in the sky so high? Now that our intrepid explorers are finished their grand sailing adventure (We'll All Go Sailing, 2001), they are ready to take off again in this attention-grabbing sequel. This time the three friends take to the sky and count whatever they see, from helicopters to bats and everything in between. And when they are done, they'll tell the story of their exciting trip as they invite everyone along on the next ride. Another brilliant picture book for the primary audience. Young toddlers will love the colours and simple, recognizable images. Easy gatefolds invite little ones to open up each page. And older preschoolers will count along as the sky gets more and more crowded with airborne delights. Maggee Spicer and Richard Thompson's spirited text won't have to be read many times before it's memorized. Artist Kim La Fave repeats his wildly colourful primary style, which debuted in We'll All Go Sailing and earned him a nomination for the Governor General's Literary Award for Children's Literature, Illustration. This multipurpose book will once again appeal to a wide range: from ready-to-talk to ready-for-school.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A hot air balloon is the setting for a sky-high counting excursion in We All Go Flying by Maggee Spicer and Richard Thompson, illus. by Kim LaFave, the follow-up to We'll All Go Sailing, which focused on colors and sea animals. "We'll all go flying/ In the jungle sky,/ And what will we spy/ In the sky so high?" The answer appears behind a flap: "Six pea green parrots/ And a loud toucan!/ That's what we'll spy/ in the jungle sky." (Sept.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Spicer and Thompson have teamed up for another "We'll All Go" picture book. This time the three young explorers, who look as if they could easily fit into a Tin-Tin or Popeye comic strip, take to the sky in a bright red, hot-air balloon. They spy helicopters, lightning bolts, hawks, kites, bats, and owls partially hidden behind flaps and boldly outlined in black against the backdrop of an ever-changing, colorful sky. In addition to being a counting book, the simple, descriptive verse covers lots of ground and a number of concepts in few words; it identifies colors, shapes, habitats, animals, sounds, and more in a natural and unassuming manner. LaFave's illustrations provide a vibrant world for Maggee, Jesse, and the unnamed narrator to explore. The story concludes with the end of a journey and the promise of another. Children will be content to hear this tale over and over as they await the next installment in the series.-Carol L. MacKay, Camrose Public Library, Alberta, Canada
