Book Review: Freight Train

Rating: ★★★★☆

This is a simple presentation of the different cars on a freight train, with well-chosen rhythmic text describing each car.  It’s a better board book than picture book, because for toddlers the bright colors and simple lines are very pleasing, but it might not hold the interest of older readers.  This is good for the transition from looking at pictures to understanding stories, especially if the young reader can have exposure to a real train.
