Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Only six words are used in the entire book, but the pictures are an exuberant tale all on their own. What child hasn’t imagined soaring above the trees while on a swing? But what about going so high you could give a thumbs-up to a mountaineer, or wave to passengers in a plane?

Leslie Patricelli captures the boundless joy of swinging, and kids will readily relate to the young girl’s adventure. Animated, expressive artwork makes this an energetic read, perfect for pre-readers and new readers.

Bold, bright, and playful pictures are a joy.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
