Going Up!, by Sherry J. Lee, is an adorable book about love within a community.
Sophie and her dad were invited to a birthday party on the 10th floor of their building. They decide to make their favorite cookies to celebrate a fun occasion. On each floor, the elevator stops and new neighbors enter the elevator. By the 10th floor, the elevator is packed, and everyone is excited to get the birthday party started!
Going Up! is a picture book that celebrates diversity. Each floor contains new neighbors with unique backgrounds and cultures. They are celebrated and loved whenever the elevator door opens.
In addition to the beautiful story of celebrating differences, Going Up! has bright and cheerful illustrations. They match the energy and love between the characters. They were a perfect blend of the message and the setting to make a beautiful image of the text.
