Format: Board book
This book is great - (...)when I read it aloud, it's kind of fun for adults to read, too. Out of all the books we have, I'd say this book is one of the top 2 my son wants to have read over and over. When we're not reading it, he flips through it on his own and looks at the clearly drawn, colorful, interesting pictures, which have just enough detail without being too complicated. The depictions of different kinds of trains are fairly accurate, too. And the book is a good length - not just a few pages, like some board books, but not so long he loses interest.

I have purchased Bryon Barton books before and have always been very pleased with them. The board books are very well made and sturdy for the youngest hands. The pictures are large, colorful and pleasing to the eye. The wording is simple enough to become an early reader. I highly recommend any of the books in the series.

When I first read through this book, I thought it was a loser (we received it as a gift). The text was so bland that I did not think I could stand to read it again and again to my son (now 27 months). But, he loves it. He shrieks with joy at the train coming around the mountain, he loves to call "all aboard!", he loves the intersection with the street. And now I love it, too, because it gives him so much joy and has taught him so much about trains. I have just placed an order for several other Byron Barton books and I can't wait for them to come.

I gave this book to my 3 year old son shortly before he and my husband were taking a train trip. I thought he would enjoy it since he loves trains so much, but I didn't realize that he would become completely attached to it! He hasn't let this book out of his sight and wants us to read it to him all the time. Since he has memorized the words, he even reads it to himself. Great book for a pre-schooler who is fascinated with trains or for a child who will be taking a trip on a train!

This book is great for all children. The illustrations are simple enough for babies, yet there are enough details to interest older children. The story is about different trains, where they travel, and the people who work and ride on them. My one year old loves to look through this book on her own. When I read it to her, her favorite part of the story is, "Here is the conductor calling... all aboard!". It gets a smile every time!

Byron Barton's Trains has become an unlikely favorite for our 2-year old. I say unlikely because it's so different from what most of his favorites (which are heavy on Sandra Boynton, Jez Alborogh, and the Spot series) are like. The art is extremely simple, using lots of bold colors, and the story doesn't rhyme or feature any noticeable repetition. It's not really even a story at all, but rather a descriptive sentence on each page highlighting the kind of train or activity shown.

I don't know whether it's the bold colors or just the subject matter (my son is absolutely fascinated by all kinds of vehicles), but this little board book went straight into his bedtime "top 5" and shows no sign of leaving! I may not get it, but I'm confident enough after seeing my son's reaction to this book to recommend Trains to the parents of any toddler interested in trains.

My son got this book when he was 18 months old and he LOVES it! It is simple enough to keep his attention and not bore him with too many words. The pictures are perfect. I would ask questions about what he saw in the picture and he would point things out. We counted how many houses, how many trees, how many train cars. We noticed that all the people at the train station were wearing hats, and on the train they were not. I know this book by heart now and I'm not sick of it. My son is now 2 and 1/2 and he still wants to read this book.

This book was incredibly underwhelming. Each sentence starts with "here is" or "there is". After reading such positive reviews I am surprised. Not only is it kind of boring to read out loud, but it fails to excite my 15month old son. It is very descriptive but there is no story or rhyming tone to keep us entertained. He is really into "hello freight train". I have to read that one at least two times at minimum during bedtime or he picks it up voluntarily to flip trough the pages and look at the pictures. I can't believe I paid 8 bucks for this book, very disappointed.

I gave if three stars because the pictures are pretty cute.
