Five Books About Trains You Should Have

Story by Gertrude Crampton and Pictures by Tibor Gergely
The most important rule: you must stay on the tracks.  This is a great book but a little lengthy for the small children.  

Freight Train by Donald Crews
This simple story tells the names of the different kinds of train cars, lists colors, and has easy to grasp pictures that are great for toddlers who love trains. 

There's A Train Going By My Window
By Wendy Kesselman and Pictures by Tony Chen
See my earlier review HERE about this fabulous rhyming book for all ages!.

The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg
This is a great story about a magic train and a story about Christmas! Van Allsburg delivers his usual beautiful illustrations and enchanting story.  Read this story all times of the year.

The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper
This is a great old story about the Little Engine we all know so well.  The characters in this story are sweet and the pictures have charmed many children.

  1. Love the recent titles of your posts- great job! My 2 loved Freight Train- so funny, I could have written it for its simplicity, but that's what makes it so unique.

    Halloween won't be the same w/o you and your fam. :(
