SFC 4 star review Mar 19, 2008
This is the first children's book by author William Trombello and I must say it's very well done. Trombello teaches children how real trains work with colorful illustrations showing different parts of a locomotive.
In this nonfiction picture book, children learn how much a modern day locomotive weighs, the type of engine a locomotive uses and who developed it, how fast they go, how much power they use, and so much more. As children read, there is a train at the bottom of each page that moves further and further down the track to learning. Children that love trains will want this book. The words are simple enough that beginning readers can read it by themselves and read along with their parents, too.
William Trombell has worked around trains for over 20 years and it shows in this wonderfully imaginative and colorful picture book.
A must for every curious child Jan 31, 2007
Well illustrated and ESPECIALLY well written, this book teaches children about the mechanical workings of the modern locomotive. Many children play with trains; why not show them how they REALLY work? Fun, not too technical, and, above all, informative.
