A great companion to Higher Higher! Lots of great clues for the little ones to think about what's coming next (feathers for the upcoming eagle; tail of the cheetah). And lots of great details for the adults to smile at: The baby from the board books is on the swings with Mom, saying, of course, "Higher! Higher!" as the girl and her daddy get started playing. The end papers lead seamlessly into the title page and story. Love how pooped each animal is after their turn with the girl; love daddy's tie around each animal's neck. Love the paw-print Jolly Roger on the puppy pirate boat. And yes, there's the monkey again--in a submarine this time. Best details though: the exhausted eyes on the sea turtle, the cloud animals on the back endpaper, and the shadows of the clouds on the surface of the ocean...such a small touch, but it really makes you feel how high up you are.

OK, will stop rattling on about this book now. Can't wait to use it in baby storytime!
