In three little chapters we meet a variety of cheerful birds, more than happy to explain to readers the vagarities between terms like "Up" and "Tall" and "High". In the first story two birds inform the reader that they are tall. When a third stilt-wearing bird is called out for not really being tall (despite its claims), he makes the pertinent point that though he may not be tall his plumage when fluffed is NOT small. In story #2 a morose penguin laments that he cannot go high. That is, until a little bird provides the perfect solution. Finally, in the third story two birds go up . . . and then come down unexpectedly.Read more ›
This is a terrific early reader that kids LOVE and, in fact, just won the Theodor Seuss Geisel award (you know, Dr. Seuss!) and yeah, the committee that makes those selections has seen Mo Willems work too, b/c he has won in the past, so I guess this apparent "similarity" didn't bother them a whole lot.
Using bright, bold colors, strong lines, and sparse text, Ethan Long successfully illustrates these words in a humorous way. Adding to the fun, each of the three stories has a gatefold that opens up or down and that further throws light on the concept. In the second story, for instance, a landlocked penguin bemoans the fact he can't fly. An enterprising bluebird hands him some balloons and off he goes. Lift the flap and our penguin friend is now floating into the sky as he exclaims, "Yes, now I can go very high!"
Beginning readers just starting out on the road to fluency are sure to rejoice in a book that has so much to offer--simple text, boisterous art, interactive flaps, and giggles galore.
