With bright, eye-catching colors perfect for young eyes, this picture book tells in few words the story of a little girl swinging on swing set. She keeps telling her father, 'Higher, Higher!' and as she swings, she swings as high as a giraffe, a tall building, a mountain, and finally into space, where she encounters a cute, green alien who is also swinging. She gives him a high-five, and then slowly returns to the ground where her father hugs her. Even the youngest children will love the illustrations, and older preschoolers will enjoy the silly concept of swinging so high that you encounter mountains, planes, and aliens.
