My 4 year old son is still talking about this book and we returned it to the library 2 weeks ago. The bright illustrations are warm and endearing and the Higher, Higher refrain is one we know well! My 6 year old can read it to him too.

Kim, I can see why your little one enjoyed this book. I love the bright, cheery illustrations. They really tell the story where the sparse text leaves off.
