A classic Munsch tale about a kid who loves to climb.

Anna loves to climb, even if she’s not always successful. What’s more, she’s impossible to stop!

Up, up, up she goes, to the very top of the enormous tree in her yard. “Be careful!” says her mother. “Come down!” says her father.

But getting Anna down is not as easy as it looks. Time for mom and dad to climb the tree . . .

In this fun story, kids will delight in the repetitive, silly wordplay, and the curious, unstoppable Anna, who is always several steps ahead of her parents!
