Up, Tall and High by Ethan Long
A group of birds talk about who is tall, who is high in the air, and who is up in a tree in a series of very short chapters. Birds compare their height by insisting that they are the tall one. The ending of that story comes with a short bird who is definitely not small. The high in the air story is about a bird who can fly and a penguin who can’t, but a solution is found. Up in a tree is a story about a little bird who is up in a tree and a larger bird who decides to join him there. Each of the stories is short, clever and has a lot of humor.
The book is endearingly simple with bold lines and bright colors. There are only a few words per page and many pages have no words at all. Definitely designed with toddlers in mind, these three short stories are filled with a cheerful attitude.
Ideal for small children, these are stories that have the color, friendliness and humor to be a hit. Appropriate for ages 1-3.
