But that was my mistake in ordering, so I'm not factoring the ridiculous size into my star rating.
Overall, this is a great book. The illustrations and text are very simple and there's something about the artwork that is unique and pleasing. It simply shows the different types of cars on a freight train, and how the train covers lots of ground on it's journey. It goes through tunnels, over bridges, through mountains, and travels night and day.
This book is tons of fun for kids, but not super-fun for adults. It's a bit boring to read, in my opinion.
RECOMMENDED AGE RANGE: Ages 1-3.
GOOD FOR TEACHING: Colors, counting, types of cars in a freight train
The author also has a related book called "Inside Freight Train" where you can slide open the cars and see what's inside. Other Donald Crews' books include "Airplane" and "Truck." We have enjoyed those as well. One fun aspect of his books is that some of the same vehicles repeat. For example, one page of the book "Airplane" shows a landscape in which the rainbow-colored freight train is shown in the distance. My child was really tickled when he noticed it and recognized it as the same train from this book.
I was not compensated for this review.
