My sons (2 and 4 years old) really liked Digger Man and Fire Engine Man, so it was no surprise that Train Man became their new favorite book. The pictures are full of color and objects for them to find. The wording is simple enough to be used as a first reader. The main theme is like the other two books where a child dreams of sharing his ideal job with family.

I have two sons ages four and two, the oldest loves trains and the little one is just starting to like them. This book was a perfect read for my little train lover, the book is about a boy and some parts of the story involve his little brother. I especially love the illustrations. I can't wait to read the other books Fire Engine Man and Digger Man.

Great little story which shows a little boy using his imagination to become an engineer and back again. The illustrations are very well done, and they contain lots of other details (like animals and vehicles) to point out while we read.

This book has instantly become a favorite for train-loving Dad and Son!

This latest by the talented pair of Zimmerman and Clemesha is sure to be a hit with young listeners. The crisp text is illustrated with vivid and charming pictures. TRAIN MAN is a must for kids who love trains and is a good complement to FIRE ENGINE MAN and DIGGER MAN.

My three-year-old loves this book about a little boy who wants to be a "train man" when he grows up. It is often his choice at bed time. The story is engaging and the pictures are great, too. We recommend it for any little train lover.

Grandson loves it! It is increasing his vocabulary ... He is now saying all aboard! His older brother, a train man himself, enjoys it as well!

recently we got this book from the library. My one year old loves it, it is his favorite; however, he is one and a boy and prone to rip the pages. Is there anywhere it is sold as a board book, it would sure help the book hold up longer.
