Toronto writer Kathleen Gauer has published a children’s picture book that will delight children, young and old. Her grandchildren who love to swing and dream inspired her to write this story and even appear in one of the illustrations in the book. High in the Sky is a bouncy, fun-to-read-aloud story about a child whose solution to boredom and restlessness is riding on a tire swing.
"All of a sudden, I'm in control. The harder I pump, the higher I soar. I bend my knees and off I go to places I've never been before.."
With its upbeat, rhythmic text and charming pastel watercolours, High in the Sky illustrates how children can be both active and imaginative while riding on a swing."Wheee! Down like a roller coaster ... Those tickles in my tummy! Then rushing up once more I go ... the feeling is so yummy!
And, at the back of the book, there are lots of fun, creative and educational activities that children, parents and educators will enjoy. Visit YouTube to watch the book's trailer!
