My favorite part of the book is when John Henry saved a lot of people from dying (a cave was about to cave in). This is my favorite part because I want to be a super hero just like him! I liked this book because it makes you believe you can do anything you want if you set your mind to it. John Henry does this when he competes against the steam drill. He knew he was going to win and he did! My favorite illustration in the book is the one where the moon shines over John Henry's cabin because it reminds me of when I was in a cabin in California looking up in to the mountains.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to be a hero. You could do something little, like being nice, and be considered a hero. John Henry was a great hero to everyone!
