Picture Books

Train

Train is a picture book by Elisha Cooper.

Boo: I like the train book. My favorite part is because it has lots of trains.  All different trains.  My favorite train is the green one; it’s the fourth one.  It’s a train carrying some people eat a lot and start to go to bed.

Momma’s Recommendation: Train is one of my favorite train books I’ve read to Boo. And I’ve read a lot. The watercolor illustrations are beautiful and the rhythm of the writing is engaging.  It covers different types of trains including commuter trains, freight trains, and long-distance (overnight) trains, but in a fluid story-telling way instead of in an informational way.
