"Colorful, vibrant pictures and simple sentences which will have your preschooler 'reading' along with you - easy for them to memorize and has good pictures of real trains at the beginning and end of the book that will fascinate your train fan."
"Really love this one: A lady came to the station with a pan, a divan, a basin, a box with three locks, a valise, and a tiny pekingese...and from there the story continues. Too bad it seems to be out print!"
"Originally published in 1913, the copy we have is from 1983. The text is quite lengthy yet interesting to an older child with words not too common today in children's books but the illustrations are detailed and wonderful."
"We chanced upon this book at our local library while searching the stacks for train books. Fell in love with the photographs so much that I wrote to the photographer, ordered the book directly from him so we could have an autographed copy. It is that gorgeous! A coffee table worthy book I hope my son keeps into adulthood."
