Format: Hardcover
A must-have for the young train enthusiast, this book's cadence is charming and infectious. Its pictures are simple yet engaging. I have just ordered a replacement copy for my 3-year-old, who is heartbroken at the loss of his original copy.

I first got this book for my son two years ago and we've been giving it as a gift ever since. The rhyming text and colorful pictures hold their attention and the special train info in the back is cute also. My son loves the other 3 titles in the series: Dazzling Diggers, Roaring Rockets, and Flashing Fire Engines. Great price for a hardcover book!

We have the whole series now and my 5year old & 3 year old love all of these books. The illustrations are great and the text has been written in a way that enables my 5 year old to practise his reading skills. The last page with the glossary of vehicle parts gets their creative juices flowing on how it works...just be ready with further explanation as to the function of these parts...or ask Daddy!

My daughter couldn't afford to buy my grand kids books and they love reading. I am not able to do a lot of "extra spending" either but want the children to love books like I do and have the opportunity to have some. I was so glad to find these and at such a wonderful price. I was able to get the kids each several books of their own and they were so glad to get them to! Go Nanny!!! I will be buying some more for them too!!

My 2 year old loves this book!! He loves trains and this book is so catchy and cute that my son has parts memorized. He can almost read it back to me! This book also helped my son understand some different features like the signals, switches, tunnels, coach cars, and different features that make up a train. If your child loves trains, then this will further your young ones knowledge to some extent.

my little guy loves trains and loves this book. I like the cute pictures and how the story rhyms. THe pages are not real thin, which is good for little boys who tend to tear/rip pages when mommies turn their heads. Happy with my purchase. Would recomend to all toddler train lovers.

This is my two year old son's favorite book of this series. Every night he wants to read "Tractor Trucks" (Tremendous Tractors and Terrific Trucks, which are other books in this series), but he always wants to finish out with "Trains."

I seriously read this every single night. The rhyme is cute, and my kids love the pacing of the stories. Easy read before bed. If your kids love trains, get this book and you will not be disappointed. Everything in this series is pretty solid.

Both of my children (girl and boy) have loved this book. It is clever and rhythmic making it fun to read (I still don't mind reading it after 4 years). I would highly recommend it especially for toddlers.
