Up! Tall! And High!

Up! Tall! And High! (but not necessarily in that order.) by Ethan Long

Up!Tall!AndHigh!This is a silly, colorful book for emerging readers.  Using only a few, easy-to-read words, Long presents 3 stories with fun bird characters.  The stories center around the birds, and the words/concepts of tall, high (flying), and up (in a tree).  Each story has a fold-up page that reveals a silly twist with one of the bird characters.

Up! Tall! And High! is a fun book for children just beginning to read.
