Amazon.com Review

Hop on board and see what's inside the freight train! Slide apart the sturdy pages of this unusual board book to reveal the contents of the cars. The refrigerator car keeps apples, peaches, and pears cold and fresh, while the tender carries coal that burns in the fire box, and--everyone's favorite--the caboose holds the train crew that helps deliver the freight. A continuous track runs through the book, with connecting brightly colored train cars. An appealing concept, executed simply and pleasingly, Inside Freight Train can't miss with the train-loving masses. Caldecott Honor winner Donald Crews (Truck and Freight Train) has a way with heavy machinery and young readers. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

In Donald Crews's Inside Freight Train, a board book based on the Caldecott Honor book Freight Train, children can slide open the doors of each train car. Inside, the pages explain what usually travels on a freight train, "like toys and books,/... / apples and peaches and pears/ cold and fresh." This twist on an old favorite is sure to be a hit.

All of Mr. Crews' books are favorites in our house...so it is no suprise that my son, Ben (3), loves this one too! I am buying another copy for my girlfriend's children. I think this man is one of the best authors/illustrators of children's books around. He has a way with beautiful pictures and simple verses that are so pleasing for young children. This book is a little different from his others because of the sliding pages but it only adds to the charm. This book is a winner! Also, check out Freight Train, Flying and School Bus by Donald Crews as well, you won't be disappointed!

My son just turned two and has had a love of trains for quite some time.

We got the "Freight Train Board Book" from the library and he absolutely loved it. It was a book he carried around the house and looked at every moment he took time to sit down.

We had the book out for 6 weeks, the maximum allow time for a title to be out, and I knew he'd have a hard time parting with it.

I bought that book and noticed "Inside Freight Train" :)

It looked, and turned out to be, a very nice accompaniment to the first book.

Chase would keep both books with us a night time to read one and reference the other;-)

The only reason I marked 4/5 stars was due to the fact that the sliding pages started to fall apart after about a week of what I considered falrly regular, monitored, use:(

Still trying to figure out which glue will work best to affect a repair.

Normally I'd be upset if a book fell apart on me like Crews' Inside Freight Train. But the truth is, the book had no chance. From the moment we bought this book our 14-month-old son had to read it. And read it. And read it. Worse, he had to have it read to him. And to him. And to him. I don't know what the guaranteed amount of "pull-outs" the page had, but I'm sure we exceeded them in the first week. No sooner would we turn the last page and slide it back in than he'd sign more and we'd start all over. I stopped counting after 20+ readings in one sitting. The pages slide in and out easily even for little hands. The illustrations are clear and colorful, not overly busy. The amount of text is just right. The interactiveness--being able to pull the pages out, being able to anticipate what will be inside--is a wonderful bonus. Highly recommended. Though I'd also recommend buying two--we eventually did.

My kids loved this, but it did not hold up to their "love." My girls loved sliding open up the train cars and talking about what the different types of railroad cars carry. It fell apart after a week or so. Sadness for all involved, believe me.

I already wrote a review on this product but am still unable to edit: mentioned a slight problem but the seller contacted me instantly and made it right. I would recommend both this book and seller without reservation. Great companion to the Crews FREIGHT TRAIN book. Tells, often with interactive graphics, what's actually inside each train car.

The original of this book is one of the favorites of the little boy I babysit. When I saw this I thought it would be a great follow up. He likes it but doesn't quite understand as he is 2 1/2. I love the concept though!! He will eventually understand since he loves trains and I don't see that changing :)

Very nice little train book! It has slide-open freight doors, which is fun (pictures of what is in the car inside), and seems to be much sturdier than most lift the flap type books for small children.

The book "Inside Freight Train" was poorly constructed. My 1 1/2 old granddaughter loved the book at first. She was proud she could independently slide out the pages to see what was inside the train cars. Unfortunately, very soon after I gave her the book, pages fell off their "slide" when the pages opened. I tried to put it back together with my hot glue, and I tried again later with duck tape. Nothing has worked. I have a very disappointed granddaughter. Don't buy the book. It won't withstand the use of the child(ren) for whom it is intended!
