Reviews - What do customers think about Big Book Of Trains?
Typical DK, excellent photos! Apr 12, 2008
As with all DK books, the pictures are awesome. If you have a train lover, he/she will love this book. And again, DK's books have thick pages so small hands won't easily wreck the pages. Can be for the younger to just look at the pictures, or as my son who just turned 7, loves to read it as well.
For train lovers of ALL ages Jan 28, 2008
We got this from Santa for Christmas, because my (almost) 3 year old son loves seeing the Shinkansen (Japanese bullet trains). We read this book at least 3 nights a week, and he's fascinated with all the parts of the trains that I point out as we go along. He may be a bit young to understand how all of them work, but this book definitely helps increase our fascination. It's really great to find out how the trains evolved, and where they're heading in the future. And Dad is into it, too -- especially when they describe the speeds of these over 50 different kinds of trains!
You can be any age to be a train lover, and this is a great book to pique the interest. DK, please keep making these awesome books!
Great Train Book May 13, 2007
My son loves this book. His friend loved it so much, I also bought it for his birthday. It's a winner for any train lover.
Fabulous Train Book! Jan 18, 2007
We (Santa) got this book for my 4 1/2 year old and what a hit. The quality is that of a DK book, not to be surprised. The colors are great and the pictures are just awesome. He will continue to love it when he learns how to read. A big hit, especially for the price.
