Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In her typically vibrant style, Rockwell scrutinizes numerous types of train transportation. Ages 3-6. (Jan.)
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 A bright addition to Rockwell's popular transportation series, Trains is another winning choice for young patrons who love things that go. Rockwell's usual colorful, amusing watercolors illustrate the simplest of texts. In vintage Rockwell fashion, her terrain is ``peopled'' with animal characters, in this case, foxes. The friendly tone of the book, the use of the first person at the conclusion, and the book's beginning and ending with toy trains heighten the appeal to preschoolers. The variety of trains, including freight, passenger, subways, and monorails, is certain to engage small armchair engineers. Rockwell again succeeds in creating an informational picture book that is right on target: it's accurate, colorful, brief, and interesting.
