SFC 4 star review Mar 19, 2008
This is the second book for children written by William Trombello. Children will understand a train's journey from the time it leaves the repair station to when it arrives at the station. Children will be taken on a journey of knowledge with Engineer Obie, Mechanic Mike, Carl the Carman, and Brakeman Bob. With colorful illustrations, children will see what each part of the train looks like, how it works, and learn what its function is in making the train go. Children will also learn about the different, but important jobs each person has at a train yard and on the train itself.
As children read along, a train at the bottom of each page shows how much they have learned and how much they still have to go on their journey into the world of locomotives.
At the end of the book, Trombello shares a warning with children about being safe around trains. He also shares his inspiration to write" How a Real Locomotive Works", and a little history about a train called "Little Obie".
