In this early reader, Dr. Seuss explores the concept of up. What kinds of things can go up? What does up look like? In Seuss typical rhyming fashion we learn.

The illustrations are done by Quentin Blake so are not typical of Dr. Seuss. They are interesting, colorful and fun. The story is simple and repetitious making it easy for young readers to learn how to read new words. Alongside the every day words, there are a few new things children might not know such as stilts and buttercups. This is a fun early reader that makes learning to read easy due to repetition and rhyming. It is written on the end of first grade reading level. Recommended for grades k-2.

There are lots of bedtime stories, so why not one for waking up too? Really enjoyed the collaboration with Quentin Blake (love his illustrations in several Roald Dahl books)
