My 6- and 4-year-olds loved the lyrical rhythm in the book and enjoyed the pictures. They both love to race around the block, too. They appreciated learning about how things have changed (with regard to Civil Rights) since the time-period of this book. I liked the historical context provided at the end of the book.
