PreS. These two new board books are based on Lenski's picture books with the same titles, originally published in the 1940s. In Fire Engine, Fireman Small drives his little fire engine to a house fire, where he rescues the inhabitants and douses the flames. In Train, Engineer Small drives his little passenger train from Tinytown through the countryside to Union Station. Some lines of the stories and illustrations have been omitted and other minor changes have been made in the these editions, but each book ends with one of the series' familiar tag lines, such as "And that's all about Fireman Small!" The colorful, childlike pictures have definite appeal for the very young. Although the text is a bit long for many babies and toddlers, these colorful board books might still hold the interest of avid train and fire engine enthusiasts. Carolyn Phelan

My son loves this story. But I did not realize when I purchased it that it was the board book version. This version is not the full story. It is an abridged version. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Arizona Pen
