really liked it

This Caldecott honor award book simultaneously features colors and trains. Many young children love trains, so this book provides an excellent method of teaching about colors. The different parts of a train are depicted and labeled, each in a different color so that children can easily distinguish the differences. After the parts of the train are introduced, the train travels in many different kinds of environments.
This book is best when read by an older reader to an individual child. The reader and child can make up their own stories about where the train has been, allowing the child’s imagination to flourish.
