How High is the Sky? by Anna Milbourne


How High is the Sky? by Anna Milbourne

A picture story book that introduces the concepts of size and scale. Pipkin the inquisitive penguin wants to know how high the sky is and so, with a friendly albatross, he flies past a hot-air balloon, a space rocket and the moon - but the sky is still much too high to him to reach the top.


'The cover is wonderful and has beautiful illustrations - I love the padded feel. Quietly soothing for tired parents and charmingly stimulating for inquisitive toddlers' - Bizzie Baby Customer Review; 'This is a fantastic quality book for 3+. A very good story for kids that age as my son has often asked me 'how high is the sky'! They are expensive compared to bargain buys, but the quality makes up for it!' - Bizzie Baby Customer Review; 'There is a truly magical feel to this enchanting little tale which is complemented by Riglietti's wonderfully whimsical and emotive illustrations and is guaranteed to warm hearts and inspire plenty of discussion.The perfect tall story to make bedtime short and sweet...' - Lancashire Evening Post; 'The plentiful, repetitive dialogue helps keep up the pace and the pictures have great appeal, not least because the faces of the animals show their feelings so well. The splendid 'very tall poster', takes young learners further into the world of facts with some quality information' - Books for Keeps'
