Reviews - What do customers think about Freight Train Board Book (Caldecott Collection)?
A Children's Book Must-Read May 1, 2008
A must-read to share with kids! Freight Train uses simple text and clear illustrations. The book can be very interactive for little ones: count the cars, identify colors, make "whoosh" sounds when the train is in motion and find the smoke from the steam engine. Perfect for toddlers!
Wonderful Book! Feb 3, 2008
I absolutely love this book! We checked it out all the time when I was young, about three to five years old, because I could not get enough of it. I loved the shiny pages, the bright, solid colors, and the different cars on the train. I'd forgotten, until I read the reviews here, that the book had words, but then, that's how I learned the names of train cars. I'm getting this book for my son.
Great Book Jan 13, 2008
My son loves trains, and he loves this book. I like the way it titles all the different cars, not being a train person myself it has taught me a few things. I like the concepts of the pictures being slightly blurred when the train is moving, b/c we match our train sounds to the speed as we;re reading. It's very delightful, it def deserved the caldecott medal.
Love this book! Sep 30, 2007
My 6-month old loves to read and these pictures are perfect for babies. It's great that it's a board book so that we don't worry about the pages ripping.
My son's very favorite book Sep 24, 2007
This was my son's very favorite toddler book! The story is cute as it follows a train and also is great for teaching colors. Highly recommended!
