By Deb HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 22, 2010
Format: Board book
A freight train is getting ready to move on down the line. The boxcars are full and logs are piled sky high in an open car. The stationmaster has checked everything out and is ready to signal the engineer. Her orange kitty cat sits in her lap as she prepares to pull out. Let's go! "The engine rushes down the track, with ninety-seven cars in back. / They're full of lumber, toys, and more, / and headed for the western shore." Whooo! Whooo! Up the hill it goes through the countryside as the horses in an animal car peer out at some frolicking sheep in the meadows.

Chugga chugga . . .
Choo CHOO CHOOOO!
Clicka clacka too
HOO HOOOO!

The engineer toots her horn as she approaches a railroad crossing gate. The signals flash red and the gate goes down so cars won't cross the track. All of a sudden the engineer notices something is wrong . . . the eastbound six-oh-eight is on the same track and she "sees in a flash that trains are headed for a CRASH!" Switchman Jack has his feet up and is reading the paper. His hand is on the switch, but he isn't paying attention. Are the two trains going to have a head-on collision or is the he going to notice those trains are on the same track? Whooo NO!

This terrific, traveling lift-the-flap train book will entrance little train aficionados. This is a quality board book that stands above many I've seen. Most board books are meant for tiny hands, but this little traveling train adventure book, which measures a full 8" x 10" when fully opened, can be spread across a lap for a shared reading experience. As small hands excitedly lift the flaps they will be able to discover what is really in those box cars and they can watch Switchman Jack as he flips the switch and the trains change tracks. If you want an action packed, fun adventure for a special little person who can't get enough of trains, this is one book you just might want to consider!

I just purchased this book for my nephew who loves trains. I was so impressed when I received the book--the language is lively and easy to read and the illustrations are really bright and fun. The best part is that Susanna Leonard Hill has chosen words that give the reader a chance to make exciting sounds and really engage with the child. I highly recommend this book!

I picked up "Freight Train Trip" on a whim after our 2+ year old found so much amusement in "Airplane Flight!", another lift-the-flap board book by Susanna Leonard Hill and Ana Martín Larrañaga.

As with the Airplane book, there are a few little details in this book that I could nit-pick, but they're not worth mentioning because my son enjoys all aspects of the story.

Freight Train is a little more "wordy" than Airplane Flight, but that isn't saying much. It's still a very short book with one heavy duty flap per page to peak under. And lifting the flaps doesn't necessarily just reveal the contents of a box car, but changes the direction of the train or lowers the crossing arm. From that stand point, it's somewhat interactive.

Like the other book, this one seems durable enough that I don't hesitate to let our son lift the flaps by himself and read it on his own. I don't think it's in too much danger of tearing (though he's not terribly abusive -- but still, only two).

It's safe to say that this book is a hit. Since it appeared last week, it's been in nightly rotation (along with Airplane Flight!) No trouble at all recommending it.

I recently bought this book to go along with the Thomas & Friends: Take-n-Play Twist & Tumble Cargo Drop toy set for our three-year-old nephew, and he loved them both! He's at the age when he's a huge fan of anything related to fire trucks, trains, and dump trucks, and this book and the Thomas set were perfect for him.

He also tends to be really rough with his toys, but my sister-in-law said that this book has been holding up well, despite some rough handling. He likes having her or his big sister read it to him.

It's a fun little book!

My grandchilden love flap books, trains and airplanes. I didn't think I could go wrong, but I did. The pictures are nice but the flaps are not fun. I would not recommend this book, other than for it's bright pictures

Short, colorful story. Two flaps to lift on each page turn, catchy rhyming. My daughter loves repeating the sounds that the train makes and pointing out the things on the train. And it's short enough that I don't mind reading it often. Cute.
