Great Day for Up

Great Day for Up by Dr. Seuss is an early reader with an array of objects that go, well, up. The illustrations are nice and consist of mostly ordinary objects and animals. (If you've missed my rants in the past about Dr. Seuss and why I emphasis "ordinary" click on the Dr. Seuss tag below.) Despite that, I found the story dull, if not entirely lacking (the first and last pages are the only evidence that a story is afoot). Thus, my best recommendation of this book is as a picture book. Though there is an attempt at the characteristic Dr. Seuss rhythm and rhyme, there are only so many rhymes with "up," as well as a number of slant rhymes. Source: Library Books.
