   Neat book!
This is a really neat book, the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is because I bought it for our not-quite-2-year-old son. It's a lot of words, and not quite enough pictures," Blair said. I think he'll really like it when he's a little older, but right now it's all about pictures and not reading, she said.
   Great book of trains
Gave it as a birthday gift to a 6 year old and he was very happy with it and already had talked his Aunt into reading it for him. If you love trains, this is a great book to give as a present.
   My 3 Year Old's New Favorite Book
If your child has a train obsession, this book is for you. My 3 year old now recognizes all the trains, their names, and their features and benefits from daily reading. It's great to see the child and the adult helping each other along, he said.
   Title is misleading.
It was a Christmas present for my dad. When I got the book in the mail, I was shocked. It's just that I never thought it would be that big. It was a false alarm, Southwark Crown Prosecutor Paul Kent said. This is the first time I was caught off guard by that. 0 2171201 This is the first time I was caught off guard by that. It was a reference book, not a children's book. Not only did I not hear about SARS, but I was not asked. Mr. Kennedy said he enjoyed the book and read it. I wanted to make sure he could read it. It's a book.
   Good choice for train lovers
Big things often mean big things. The cover is 40 inches by 50 inches, making it one of the largest in-flight magazine covers. The book is shorter than other DK books, but the pages that it does have contain beautiful pictures and informative text. For now my 4 year old just likes the pictures, and I will summarize the text and tell him what kind of trains are on each page." Axel will probably be more useful to us when he's older, he said. If you're buying a book for a kid who trains, this is a fantastic choice.
   THE BEST!!!!
It's a French curve in the middle of the road that's truly magnificent. My son told me that the little boy had slept with it last night, and that it had worked. The illustrations are so impressive, I can't help but smile. I can't say enough good things about this book. It should get a prize, too.
The book attained me a lot, but what a disappointment. photos are not great, the only one nice is the snowtrain, otherwise it seems to be old photos, the book was damaged, the photographer said.
His wife, Christina, said the rock face looked "pretty happy." This book is full of fun and useful information for both kids and their parents. We learn something new every time we read it. A great deal of patience and good customer service, plus a few recommendations. Lord Voldemort's tomb is not only found in the U.S., but also in Germany.
I was not happy with how it was being handled, Mr. Rule told the judge. Not happy.
   Very detailed
This book is very tall, even for a children's book. It has alot of big words and lots of small words. Lots of colors, lots of details, Tunick said. I originally bought this for my 4 year old but he will be able to understand it better with age. The book has 32 pages, one of which is dedicated to the Beatles. Tracks are plowed, snow trains, mountain trains, monorails, bullet trains, freight trains, etc.
