The text seemed a bit wordy but the illustrations were great.

This is a wonderful story of anticipation and excitement and a brother and sister sharing an evening outside as they wait for the bundle their favorite uncle will throw from a train as it passes their house. It is a nice story and the watercolor illustrations impart the fuzzy shadows as afternoon turns to evening and then to night. Our girls liked this story.
