Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Similarly, a pair of vintage Lois Lenski titles are adapted for board book format. The first, The Little Fire Engine (1946) stars Fireman Small as he heads off to a Tinytown blaze and rescues a girl and her cat on an upper floor. In The Little Train (1940), Engineer Small drives his locomotive past farmland, over a bridge and through a tunnel, before unloading passengers and U.S. mail at Union Station.

Another good book by Lois Lenski. My son loves trains so this book was fun for him to read. It's pretty basic and after a few readings, my son has memorized the story and reads it back to me. Great illustrations too. I recommend several of the Lois Lenski books.

Any little boy that loves trains should have this book! I love its vintage style. Sure to be one of his favorites and it is a true keepsake. Very engaging and educational storyline. See also recommended for the others Lois Lenski has done for fire engines and airplanes.

This book is a delight! Lois Lenski was a favorite author when I was a child. This is to be a gift for my 3 year old grandson who LOVES trains, especially Thomas the Train. I know he will love this book. It describes the workings of the train in an interesting way. And the colorful rendition of Lenski's drawings is a plus.
