Book Review - Faster! Faster!
A day at the park. A ride on Daddy's back. Run, Daddy! Faster! Faster! How fast can Daddy go? Faster than a dog? A horse? How about a cheetah? Must his feet even touch the ground? Leslie Patricelli reprises the duo from Higher! Higher! in another humorous riff on a favorite pastime - a laugh-out-loud-funny tale of few words about doting dads and high-energy kids whose imaginations know no bounds.
Hang on tight for more comic joy in this companion to the Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor winner Higher! Higher!
About the Author
Leslie Patricelli is the author-illustrator of Higher! Higher! as well as eleven board books starring her beloved bald baby character, most recently Tubby and Potty. "While racing home from the post office, my daughter Tatum was riding on my back yelling, 'faster, Mommy, faster!' " she says. "Our imaginations took off, and the sequel to Higher! Higher! was born." Leslie Patricelli lives in Ketchum, Idaho, with her husband, their three children, a slow fat cat, a quick kitten, and two bunnies that can outrun them all.
My Take on the Book
I was a fan of Higher! Higher! and now in this book you get an additional taste of the fun that a father and daughter can have. As a father of two girls I always love seeing books that encourage this relationship or speak about fatherhood in such a positive way. This book is a fun, enjoyable read that your whole family will enjoy and the illustrations are bright and bold and simply jump off the page. You will also find in this book that it is well suited for the young reader as the words are large and allow for the child to become the storyteller in many ways (or at least my youngest did for me). All-in-all this was a great book that I would highly encourage all to read and share with your own families.
