The illustrations are strong enough that this would even be a great wordless book. Inspiring starting point for a discussion about the Pullman porters, Langston Hughes, African-American history, or race. The poem is so brief that stretching the text into picture book length would have been a mistake in less capable hands. Because of the depth and subtleties, recommended for grades 1-4.
