The jacket describes the book as being for ages 3-8. However, I feel the book is more appropriate for a slightly older age group, perhaps 5-10, particularly as free verse as well as some of the illustrations are rather complex. A short bibliography at the end of the book extends its range to even older students.

The simple prose and illustrations helps to create a sense of loss and longing or a sense of hope as the people leave behind their old lives, family, and ways of life in search of new beginnings and hope. The author also included text that young children and adult can relate to and pulls on heartstrings. The illustrations have unique twists and are sparse yet charming.
This would be a nice addition to a school or classroom library. The poetry and free verse require an advanced level of comprehension thus it would probably resonate with children age five through grade school. However a child of any age could be introduced to the book and find some level of enjoyment especially while sitting in the lap of an adult and talking about the book.
Author Eloise Greenfield and illustrator Jan Spivey Gilchrist do a wonderful job of simplifying the story of the Great Migration for young children through short poems and beautiful illustrations. It gives the reader a good idea of the hope and promise these African Americans must have felt when the left their old lives in search of a new one in the North. A great feel good book.
