Up, Tall and High written and illustrated by Ethan Long is the 2013 recipient of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for the best beginning reader.
Three short stories are told about the meanings of the words tall, high and up. They are acted out by a colorful group of birds. Using less than 30 different words, the text combines with the pictures to tell the humorous stories with fun fold-outs. The reading level is kindergarten to early first grade but this would be a great book to read to preschoolers and even babies.
The Sonoma County Library has many copies.
