    This was a great book about all sorts of trains as well as opposites that allows the young reader to make the comparisons and contrasts Fast and slow rain and snow even dark and glow ok so I make up the last one for the rhyme Neo loved being able to guess all the opposites and wondered if we might ride on some trains to test out the theory of all these different types of trains ALL ABOARD

    My 3 yr old twins love this book Great learning to read book Besides being about trains each sentence begins with This train and so the twins are starting to recognize these words already The trains also show opposites on each page this train is shortthis train is long and so there are many learning opportunities to be had here The pictures are bright and colorful and engaging but most of all the preschoolers love it

  3. Barbara Barbara says:

    This board book will see plenty of use from the train or transportation lovers in your family or classroom The end papers even feature actual trains complete with their names and the countries where they run The book starts off with color contrasts of two trains before moving into size age direction and times when trains travel among other concepts Young readers will be delighted with the ending when they too are invited to climb on that train Isn't there something about that All Aboard that sends a shiver of anticipation up riders' spines? At least that's how it always felt to me when I've traveled on a train Although most trains seem to rely on automation than humans nowadays there still is much to be said in support of traveling by train This book for young readers will keep that interest in trains alive in the hearts of many a youngster The colors used for the illustrations are appealing and make me want to get on a train to just about anywhere right now

    While the illustrations are lovely they aren’t uite clear enough for the intended audience This book is to teach basics “In the tunnel” and “over the bridge” should be obvious from a small distance

    Colourful and appealing to children who love trains this is a book of opposites It also shows and names actual trains

  6. Christine Christine says:

    This Train is a board book mainly for the toddler and beginning reader who love trains The bright colors and the wonderful action that is depicted with each engine is sure to capture the attention of any train enthusiast In both the front and back cover of the book are illustrations and descriptors of each train pictured in the book from old coal steam trains to modern high speed electric trains This is a book that will entice a reluctant reader but train enthusiast to take those first steps with the simple text that is on each page

    The structure of this book is simple facing pages contrast two trains by some attribute The first spread's two pages say This train is yellow This train is redThis line This train is repeats and the book's spreads show many simple attributes like oldnew but also complex ones like on a bridgein a tunnel or carries passengerscarries freight The art is pretty and colorful a call back to classic vintage postersSometimes the illustrations aren't as good at showing what's in the text as they should be The yellowred spread for instance is confusing because while one train is yellow and the other red they are both actually yellow and red But overall this book is a great way to introduce or generalize opposites and the huge variety of colorful trains and settings creates a lot of interestI review books for children from the perspective of a parent of kids with autism The review above is from a longer blog post about great books for kids who really love trains

    Various sorts of trains are introduced doing opposite things The trains featured are identified in the opening and closing spreadsIf you're looking for a book that features opposites or things for comparecontrast that will appeal to transportation wild kids this is an eye catching option The illustration style reminds me a bit of Art Deco with bright colors I liked the identification guides in the front and back to the different kinds of trains The text is also very easy for kids just getting the hang of this reading thing
