    A nice structure, moving back in time. I appreciated the nod to the grandmother engineer.

    This book is a very informative, nonfiction, book and if you ever have to teach a lesson on trains I would highly recommend grabbing this book. I could see this being read in grades 3-4 both aloud and as independent reading books. This is one of the non-fiction books that I could read over and over and not get tired of. The book is written in a way that actually pulls the reader in keeps them attentive as you read. O'Brien uses an abstract way of incorporating facts that keeps the storying fun and moving. Again, a good read and I would highly recommend reading this if you ever wanted to teach a lesson over trains.

    Steam, Smoke, and Steel is about the author Patrick O’Brien’s family and how they were all involved with trains. A story that mentions differences in trains from one year to the next and even gender differences (since his great grandmother drove a train).This story was great because it was informational and extremely personal. The text was written like a conversation, for example “my dad’s got the best job in the world” (2000, p.3). Also the book included very well done illustrations, some of which included captions to help the reader understand certain concepts which was helpful. This book can be used many ways in a classroom. One of those ways being utilized to teach about trains and how they have changed over time. Another way this book can be used in the classroom is to teach about family and family trees. This is because the book deals with the author’s family.

    Cooper loves this book. It is all about the history of trains, starting with the present and showing the types of trains used in different decades, going back through time until the train was first invented in the 1830s. I love it when he points out the train's firebox in every picture.

    has some women engineers in it, a nice change. Lots of words, aimed at older elementary kids.
