    2. I know it's an act of rebellion to give 5 stars to a book that uses just a dozen words, but I just could not believe how cleanly this book distilled one aspect of the parent/child relationship down to a simple concept. It is done with the simplest illustrations, featuring big oval heads and two-color outfits, and a clever conceptual transition with each page. By the end, it is a delight to see how simply the whole scenario has been represented by the various animals and scenes. As a parent, part [...]

    3. 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!

    4. A great tool for narrative storytelling and asking young kids "what do you think will happen next?" Good for an all-ages storytime: simple pictures and just two words to repeat but enough sophistication to keep preschoolers engaged as well.

    6. A little girl and her dad are playing at the park, and the dad is giving the girl piggyback rides. The girl's imagination runs wild as she yells "Faster! Faster!" and pretends her dad is various animals. Vibrant illustrations in a cute picture book about a child's imagination.

    8. A great companion to Higher Higher! Lots of great clues for the little ones to think about what's coming next (feathers for the upcoming eagle; tail of the cheetah). And lots of great details for the adults to smile at: The baby from the board books is on the swings with Mom, saying, of course, "Higher! Higher!" as the girl and her daddy get started playing. The end papers lead seamlessly into the title page and story. Love how pooped each animal is after their turn with the girl; love daddy's t [...]

    10. As a girl and her father enjoy a day out in the park, she clamors onto his back for a piggyback ride and urges him to go more rapidly. In the time-honored style of many children longing for speed, she cries out, "Faster! Faster!" (unpaginated). He, in turn, puts on enough speed to represent a bunny, a horse, even a sea turtle, until he flops, exhausted on the sand, having tired himself out in an effort to please his child. The acrylic illustrations show the ever-increasing pace of the father and [...]

    11. Prepare for an imaginative romp as Dad morphs to dog morphs to rabbit morphs to ostrich morphs to pony morphs to There are clues along the way indicating which animal will be next. The animal left behind is also featured (all worn out) as the exchanges take place. The only text on each double-page-spread are "Faster! FASTER!" Children LOVE "reading" the text, when invited to do so. They SO "get it". At last Dad is missed by the (til now) demanding little rider and reappears, quite exhausted.What [...]

    12. Faster, Faster is a beginning reader picture book in which a little girl is riding on her dad's back at the park with her family. She says faster, faster and the book takes her through different scenery, riding on different animals such as a horse, a turtle, a cheetah, etc. This book contains very little words and repeats "faster, faster". I would recommend for a beginning reader, preschool child or younger, as this book's repetition and colorful illustrations are perfect to be read together wit [...]

    13. A little girl climbs on Daddy's back for a ride. She keeps crying faster as she progress from a dog to a bunny, an emu, a horse, a bird, a dolphin and finally a turtle. The turtle doesn't seem to go fast at all. Finally, the turtle turns back into Daddy and he is worn out from the ride. Children will appreciate the minimal repetitive text, the great illustrations of different animals and may pick up on the fact that the little girl has actually been riding Daddy the whole time and pretending to [...]

    15. While I didn't like this quite as much as Higher Higher, there's still a lot to love here. The details in the pictures are great, and all of the parents got a kick out of the ending. I'm not sure this was completely successful in baby story time for me, although I think some parents might have discovered the beauty of Leslie Patricelli, so that makes it a win in my book!

    17. Picks up where Higher! Higher! left off- this time with a 'horsey' ride instead of a swing. This title again features a little girl with a big imagination and a nearly indefatigable daddy. I like the layout with each animal featured before she rides, allowing listeners to think ahead and call out animals they recognize. I also really like the cloud shapes on the endpapers.

    18. Faster! Faster! is a funny story about a girl pony-riding on her dad while imagining riding wildly on different animals. The ending is especially touching, when the girl hugged her exhausted dad and consoled him: "You're fast, daddy!". How nice!

    19. Who has not seen a child play horsey with their dad? Many of us have had that experience ourselves. Kids love to pretend, and dads love to horseplay. This charming picture book lets us imagine with a little girl as she experiences playtime with her dad. The illustrations and text make it a good selection for preschoolers or kindergarten students.

    20. Simple, imaginative story about a piggyback ride. The little girl climbs on her father's back and imagines he's different animals. Great illustrations that challenge the reader to predict what animal will come next and that tell more of the story than the words. Perfect for sharing with toddlers and preschoolers.

    21. Leslie Patricelli is one of my favorite picture book author/illustrators. Her books are just so cute! This one is great. Really simple words, so the kids can use the pictures to figure out what's going on.

    24. Leslie Patricelli does an excellent job transitioning from board books to picture books in this adventuresome tale. Daddy becomes all sorts of animals that the daughter urges to go ever faster! Great for toddler storytimes.

    26. The artwork is beautiful! I love the brushstrokes and canvas feel to the illustrations. Even though the text is simple, the story evolves through a child's imagination with Daddy going as fast as a cheetah to as slow as a turtle.
