Faster! Faster! by Leslie Patricelli - ADVISABLE

Patricelli, Leslie Faster! Faster! 32 pgs. Candlewick Press, 2012. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK.

While visiting the park one day, a little girl climbs up on her father's back and challenges him to go "Faster! Faster!" How fast can daddy crawl with her riding along? As fast as a dog? An ostrich? A cheetah? This cute picture book has many nice touches, including foreshadowing to the next animal and a tired-daddy illustration toward the end that's sure to make children laugh. A nice follow-up to Higher! Higher!
