Editorial Reviews

Parents Magazine
The sliding door panels reveal passels of pigs, chicks, apples, and more, all on their way to the market. Kids up to 5 will have fun with this ingenious board book.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In Donald Crews's Inside Freight Train, a board book based on the Caldecott Honor book Freight Train, children can slide open the doors of each train car. Inside, the pages explain what usually travels on a freight train, "like toys and books,/... / apples and peaches and pears/ cold and fresh." This twist on an old favorite is sure to be a hit. ( Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
In this "sliding board book," the reader is invited to pull apart the pages to see inside the freight cars. Readers will see inside the boxcar where there are toys and books and can look inside the cattle car where there are calves and cows. A refrigerator car holds bushels of fruit. Crews' self-portrait can be seen among the members of the crew pictured inside the caboose. This makes a fine companion to the author's original book, Freight Train, which introduced a variety of concepts to young children. Here they can explore the concepts of inside and outside and reinforce the color concepts presented in the first book. The thick board pages will withstand the repeated readings that this book will command. Curious youngsters will find the book rewarding. 2001, HarperFestival/HarperCollins, $9.95. Ages 2 to 5.

    Really Nice

    I got this for my son (2 1/2) and he loves this. He flips it over by himself and recites the simple text associated with the neat pictures. The book is sturdy and can withstand some rough handling. would also recommend the other freight train book by Crew's.

    The concept of the book is great. The operation is no so great.

    The concept of the book is great. The operation is no so great. The panels are difficult for an adult to pull out as they do not move
    smoothly. One of the sliding pages has already come apart and needs to be glued. This happened without a child using the book. I am
    disappointed how the book works and therefore can only give it a 2.
