Some times the world seems too small for this boy... He then hops on his tire swing, and dreams of different places. After a few swings he is in a jungle in Africa, or in a rocket ship. Or maybe skating on ice, or riding a surf board, or even in a roller coaster. Everything is possible.
High in the sky is a celebration of dreams written in verse. The text flows smoothly, and contains a good amount of vocabulary, but it is easy to understand at the same time. The illustrations are pretty, with some watercolor which adds to the "dreamy" atmosphere of the book. Beautiful option for reading aloud.
I received this book from the author, Kathleen Gauer, in exchange for an honest review.
