About the Author: Gail Gibbons

From gailgibbons I was born in Oak Park, Illinois, in Even as a little child, I was always busy putting books together Sometimes I would bind them with yarn to hold the pages together I ve always loved drawing and painting I was also a very curious child My parents tell me that I was always asking lots and lots of questionsLater, I went on to the University of Illinois, where I studied graphic design Then I moved to New York City, where I got a job doing artwork for television shows Eventually I was asked to do the artwork for a children s show While doing that show, some of the children asked me if I had ever thought of doing children s books My mind immediately recalled how much I enjoyed doing that type of thing when I was a child So I put an idea for a book together and right away a publisher bought it That book was called Willy and His Wheel Wagon Since then, over books that I have written and illustrated have been published The type of books I write are non fiction books This is because I love researching so much I get to ask lots of questions, just like when I was a kid I also get to travel and meet lots of interesting people While doing research for my book Nature s Green Umbrella Tropical Rain Forests, I traveled to two islands where there are tropical rain forests, Saba and Dominica I also had a great time writing and illustrating the book I get a lot of pleasure from doing the type of work I do.

    An okay book about trains Colorful pictures but too technical to really hold the attention of my kids, both the preschool aged who love trains, and my 5 yr old Just trying to find some good children s books about trains since my 2 yr old twins love trains so much Too bad they lost interest after the first sentence.

    This concept book about trains was a decent book for children to read There were many facts about the history of trains, and the mechanics on how they work It was informational and got the job done for learning about trains, however, the book was not effective in getting children interested in trains There was no excitement or drive to readon trains by the end of the book The illustrations were pretty boring and similar to each other with little differentiation from page to page I thi This concept book about trains was a decent book for children to read There were many facts about the history of trains, and the mechanics on how they work It was informational and got the job done for learning about trains, however, the book was not effective in getting children interested in trains There was no excitement or drive to readon trains by the end of the book The illustrations were pretty boring and similar to each other with little differentiation from page to page I think this book is a little too formal to keep children s attention and for that reason, I would not choose to read this to young children

    Genre Informational NonfictionGrade k 2This is a great book for children interested in learning about trains It teaches you every aspect of trains you ll need to know From the different types of trains to what trains carry it does the job I think this book directed towards younger grades, but some of the vocabulary may be difficult.

    I like how this book is about the different types of trains It shows different uses for them along with different tracks The author explains how some are for people, while others carry coal and cars Some are underground, while some are above Some are on regular train tracks while others are held from the top It puts trains in a very positive light saying trains are fun to watch While I was reading the story I noticed that this book focuses on bright, bold colors along with a big emphasis I like how this book is about the different types of trains It shows different uses for them along with different tracks The author explains how some are for people, while others carry coal and cars Some are underground, while some are above Some are on regular train tracks while others are held from the top It puts trains in a very positive light saying trains are fun to watch While I was reading the story I noticed that this book focuses on bright, bold colors along with a big emphasis on lines This is very appropriate considering the book is about trains and those are also in a line Gibbons also uses a poetic way of talking about trains occasionally rhyming His wording is very simple , sweet and gets to the point This is good because it doesn t lose the attention of a younger reader It also includes a page at the very end showing different signs used for both trains a people Although this book is not a normal story telling book it gives great details and information for young readers who are still learning the basics of a variety of things I also like how Gail Gibbons just has one simple line of text for each page, and yet the book is still filled with plenty of interesting facts A good book for reading in class and make class discussions

  10. Katherine Settle Katherine Settle says:

    This book was very well at showing what part of a train was, or teaching something to the reader I liked how the colors were bright in the book I think this could be very helpful for a small child, especially if they are interested in trains The book does a good job of describing what all the trains can do They also mention all of the different kinds of trains Although, this book teaches a lot, I almost wish it toldof a story This book was very good at teaching.
