Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marisa Binder
A train track sits empty, waiting for a train to pass over it. Suddenly, the pages fill with eye-popping illustrations of all the various types of train cars, each with different heights and shapes. A full page illustration demonstrates how all these pieces fit together to form a freight train, and a rainbow of color explodes onto the pages as this particular freight train moves forward on its journey. After following the fast moving train through cities, tunnels, and over bridges, the story returns to its beginning with the train track lying empty once the freight train has gone. Nothing is lost in the Spanish translation of this Caldecott Honor book, and the placement of the Spanish words directly under the English words allows children visually to associate the two languages. Beautifully illustrated with clear, interesting pictures helpful in learning colors, this bilingual book is an excellent tool for teaching. All aboard! Reviewer: Marisa Binder

    My son told me a story about a train book that he was reading to

    My son told me a story about a train book that he was reading to a dinosaur that turned into a robot.  Freight Train was the train book.  Our copy is an English/Spanish edition.  I bought this edition because the text is so simple it seemed a great way to introduce my son to a language besides English.  I've done this with a couple of other books (e.g., Goodnight Moon), and it's been pretty successful.
    Freight Train does have very simple text.  The text is also large and easy-to-read.  My son can't yet read, but he can recognize some words, so when he was reading this story to the dinosaur (from another book), he was doing a pretty good job.  Gateway books -- books that transform children from active listeners to readers -- are vital in developing young readers.  I'm pleased that Freight Train is a gateway book for my little boy because, although the text is simple, it is not dull.
    The illustrations in Freight Train are beautiful, bold, colorful and perfect.  The train is clearly a train.  Each car can easily be distinguished from the next, but without being overly detailed.  The two-page spread where the train crosses a trestle is a gorgeous study in geometry.
