Three fun stories teach about concepts like tallness and "up" versus "down." The fold-outs are fun, the birds are cute, and the stories are simple yet humorous.

The kids weren't impressed--too simple, I think. But it's an interesting look at how things are all relative. Plus, the pictures are cute.

Through "captivating" (Kirkus Reviews) illustrations, fold-out panels, and very simple text, the three funny stories in this book demonstrate the concepts of "up," "tall," and "high." Featuring three cartoon birds who outdo and out-boast one another but also help each other out, this is a clever and entertaining book that both toddlers and beginning readers can enjoy. For more fun concept books, check out Leslie Patricelli's Yummy Yucky and Quiet Loud.

Great humor. Playful first read for new readers.

Finding picture books with limited word counts can be mighty difficult sometimes. Most bookstores and libraries don't separate out their picture books into reading levels (easy books are another matter altogether). It will be the happy child first coming to reading that discovers "Up! Tall! And High!" on their own. It will be the happy parent who recognizes the book for the wonder that it is and relegates it to permanent bedtime story status as a result. Good for crowds. Good for one-on-ones. Good for everyone.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Jul 30, 2012

In three little chapters we meet a variety of cheerful birds, more than happy to explain to readers the vagarities between terms like "Up" and "Tall" and "High". In the first story two birds inform the reader that they are tall. When a third stilt-wearing bird is called out for not really being tall (despite its claims), he makes the pertinent point that though he may not be tall his plumage when fluffed is NOT small. In story #2 a morose penguin laments that he cannot go high. That is, until a little bird provides the perfect solution. Finally, in the third story two birds go up . . . and then come down unexpectedly. Long fills his pages with vibrant colors and clear-cut lines, just as his birds speak with simple but clever wordplay.
