   Trains Is Amazing
I have a 4-year-old who is literally obsessed with trains. He trains, eats, and sleeps trains. When this book arrived I was a little dismayed that it contained so much in depth writing about trains. My son, however, soaked it all up. We swim a few pages at a time, discuss the pictures and compare what we already know just to read back into the next few pages. If you have a new railfan, like me, your child will love it. Information is great if you have an older, able reader. And if you just want a good non-fiction book for your library, the readability is awesome. Receive it -- you won 't be disappointed!
   This gives a nice history of trains and the tracks
This gives a nice history of the trains and tracks. There is a different exploration of good trains and their uses. Good pictures : A beautiful book for a budding train enthusiast.
   Five Stars
These are good books for children to read and for children who don 't like to read long books. These books also have a TON of information in them that keeps my children interested in reading to the next page. I find that my children read these books over and over again.
My son has a permanent brain injury due to an accident 21 years ago. He is now 39 yrs old. I needed to find books with large print plus not too many sentences at a time so that he can focus when he is trying to read. The author of these books and I have several now able to keep the interest of reading what he is reading, also they are educational.
   A lot of good information on what the different types of trains are used for
This book talks about different types of train and what they are used for. Some trains are commuter trains that get people to work. Another train can take people to other states.
   Great read!
And if you are a Thomas fan, there is even a page about “The Rocket!” And now I know why the Thomas creators called him “Stephen!” Great read!
   My 5 year old grandson loves this book. He ...
He loves trains and likes the fact that the pictures are real trains. Wants to read it all the time to him. He carries it a lot with him. Think he might wear the book out and need a replacement before long.
