Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Magee and Newman are right on track with this eye-catching alphabet book that focuses on a well-loved subject: trains. Intelligently framed color photographs, shot from a variety of perspectives, stoke reader interest (`` I, i : Inside , looking out, this is what the engineer sees,'' reads the caption for a photo starkly depicting the view from within a car; another particularly successful image is a closeup of springs on a railroad car, illustrating S ). Design and text are creatively integrated: the illustration of a switch, for example, requires the viewer to focus on first one photo of train tracks, and then another. Letters of the alphabet and their corresponding vocabulary words in the text are set off in red ink, unifying the book's concept as well as fanning its visual spark. Ages 3-8. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- An alphabet/vocabulary book that presents both upper- and lower-case letters and one or more corresponding words on the subject of trains. Each bold red or black letter is accompanied by full-color photographs of train parts and types such as an Amtrak, air brake, boxcar, caboose, and coupler. Each term is printed in red within its definition, e.g. ``The engineer drives the train.'' The quality of the photographs varies, with none of the crispness of Tana Hoban's or Bruce Macmillan's work, but young train enthusiasts will nevertheless be interested in this title. --Pearl Herscovitch, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
