This is a great picture book

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-04-27) Very Good Permalink

This is a great picture book, where the title really conveys nearly all the words in the book. A little girl gets pushed progressively higher by her dad on the swing until she goes into space. Pretty, energetic, and colorful pictures make this a great book to have laying around for young students...
