Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–This book introduces every possible kind of train through a rollicking rhyme: Silver trains. Black trains./Speeding-down-the-track trains./Passenger trains. Freight trains./Crossing-every-state trains. The text will have readers building up steam and momentum until the very last page, when the trains and children can both rest. Unfortunately, the illustrations combine drawings, clip art, etchings, and maps, and they are too busy. Busy can be good, but with the small size of this book and its potential as a great read-aloud, the pictures are extremely distracting. On one spread, the workers are named, but the illustrations of them below the text do not line up, and small labels next to the figures indicate their jobs. It also seems as though the book were squeezed as much as possible in order to fit into 32 pages and uses every last inch of space. Stick with Michael Rex's My Freight Train (Holt, 2002) or Philemon Sturgess's I Love Trains! (HarperCollins, 2001).–Genevieve Gallagher, Murray Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA

From Booklist

Gr. 1-3. Intricate collage illustrations add whimsy to Hubbell's rhyming text about all kinds of trains, train cars, cargoes, and railroad employees. The deceptively simple rhymes convey a great deal of information, and the fanciful collages contribute sly humor: Venetian gondoliers ride on gondola cars; a coal car belongs to the "Naughty and Nice Coal Co."; and large rats toting briefcases and newspapers hurry along with the human commuters in the New York City subway. The energetic design, with varying typefaces and layouts, reinforces the power and excitement of trains. When freights "rumble, rock, and ROAR," the letters of the word roar increase in size from the first R to the last, just as the roar of a real freight becomes louder as the train approaches. Take this along on a long trip to keep children occupied, or share it at storytime; make sure to give listeners an opportunity to peruse the art for the humor hidden in the details. Diane Foote

My 3 year old has loved this book since he was two. The artwork is unique and fun and the text has a great rhythm. Fun for reading aloud. Glad we finally have our own copy since the one at the library is always checked out.

The book itself is beautifully crafted; the drawings are inventive and imaginative. I had thought our 3-year-old grandson, who loves trucks and cars and reading books, would be interested in this book; but apparently the pages were too complicated for him to follow. We rarely made it all the way through.

My 3 yr old loves trains. He wants this book read to him 3 times in a row. The writing is very rhythmical and easy to remember. My son "reads" along with it. He loves pointing to the pictures. Great book!

Great book, words flow well. My 2 year old son LOVES it and loves the illustrations. I do think it is better as a book rather than on the kindle as we have it. I would like to buy the paper version as well.

Sometimes you just want a book to wind down and encourage young ones to sleep. This book is not exciting, or amusing and the illustrations are okay.

I love this book, so much so that I just bought a copy for my grandson after reading my library copy. Patricia Hubbell's books have everything I look for in children's literature - limited word bank, rhyme and repetition, an interest grabbing story, captivating illustrations, and that ever elusive FUN factor.

This unique book is full of visual puns,wordplay, and surreal images, like animals engineering trains, polar bears lounging in the refrigeration car, and seals swimming in a transparent tanker car. Parents will appreciate the nostalgic characters and trains that look like images copied from a 1950's picture book.

Parents will enjoy sharing this delightful book with children or grandchildren and explaining references to the bluegrass state or the Land of Lincoln.

I highly recommend this magical book that can reinforce in young readers a love of print reading.
