As a reader, we meet all the various tenants in the building, as the characters go up to the tenth floor for a birthday party. I loved seeing the diverse characters and the repetitive phrase GOING UP!

Extremely inclusive with fun illustrations - for those reasons I'm giving it five stars!

This is a fun book to explore, from finding out who is having a birthday to seeing who gets on at each floor and what they're bringing to the party. Although it isn't the focus of the story, readers will recognize the everyday diversity of an apartment building, complete with residents of different cultural backgrounds and various kinds of family units. As you read, be sure to count up the floors and shout out "Going Up!" as it repeats through the book. Share in storytimes about Birthdays or Community.
