" Love the plot and how it is presented. What a fun and true story! A little longer but it works well for all the historic facts that are laced into it. " said.

" I had no idea that this ever happened. What a smart horse! I loved it. " said.

" Fascinating story, really, of patience, goodwill, and the possibilities created by education. As stated throughout the book, "with kindness, anything is possible." " said.

" What a fantastic story of kindness, patience, perseverance, and wonder, and it's all true! This one is a keeper for so many reasons. Highly recommended. " said.

" I have been sharing this book with my 4th and 5th graders this week and one of the classes even started clapping when I finished reading it as they loved it so much! Great book to bring about discussion how a person can start from nothing such as Doc did as a slave and become a successful businessman and an overall very KIND person who treated everyone with this kindess. " said.

" Wow! This is an excellent narrative nonfiction biography. It is well written with good details. I also like Wonder Horse, which is by a different author, but also about Doc and his horse, but Step Right Up has more facts, more of a message about civic responsibility, and nice citations. I would love for this author to come to my school for a writers' workshop! Just WOW! " said.

"I had never heard of Doc Key or Beautiful Jim Key until being introduced to them through this book. This is a fascinating story of a man and his ability with animals. After Doc rescued a horse and brought her back to health, the horse was bred and gave birth to a horse that many said should be put down. However, Doc nursed the horse, loved it, and worked with it. That horse, Beautiful Jim Key, became a huge sensation and Doc became known for his gentle ways of treating animals. This is an inspiring story. The artwork in the book is also wonderful! A pure joy." said.

"This is the second kid's book I've read about the horse "Beautiful Jim Key," and I'm pleased to pronounce it another winner.

Jim's caretaker Doc, a former slave, originally planned to race the Arabian horse. But Jim was born small and sickly, and in the course of nursing this weak foal back to health, Doc decided that Jim's friendship was far more valuable than accolades at the racetrack. Using gentleness and patience, Doc taught Jim a variety of humorous and amazing tricks, and their performances became legendary. Doc and Jim Key's shows were sponsored by humane organizations, and they used each performance to impart lessons about humane values and kind treatment of animals.

It's a message that is still so important today, and it's nice to see another gorgeous and well-written book promoting humane attitudes.
