Big and bold illustrations of a variety of trains and the services they provide are showcased in this board book. Trains ride through tunnels and over bridges delivering goods. Trains also are shown carrying passengers both on long distance trips and around metropolitan areas. Part of Barton's transportation series (Boats, Planes, Trains and Trucks), his originals have been reissued and these versions are sure to be a hit with kids. 1998 (orig.

My son loves trains, and this has been one of his favorite books. The illustrations are simple, but they have enough detail for him to get excited about pointing and naming objects. It is a good length for a 2 year old.

My 2 year old is crazy for trains and loves this book. The illustrations are simple and bright. We have read it so often he has it memorized and finishes the sentences. He loves pointing out and identifying the different cargo on the freight train. He is also tickled by the sleeping passengers. We originally checked it out from the library but now have our own copy!

The Turkeybird Speaks (My son's opinion, age 3): "Now this is the part where I tell you to pull up a chair and your favorite snack so you can settle into a great book. Does it really get any better than trucks, planes, and trains? I would say not! They move, they have wheels, they go fast and they do all sorts of fun things. I especially liked reading my plane book when we traveled cross country to our new home. It was neat to look out the window and see the same sky that I was looking at in my book. These books are a must have for every home. Go get them!" Mom's Two Cents: "I have to agree with The Turkeybird and the publishers summary. We initially purchased the Trucks book when he was very little and it instantly became a favorite. Now that he is quite a bit older (at least two years have passed) he still picks them out of our full bookshelf. As he mentioned, we traveled by plane this last summer to move from the DC area to California and the Planes book was a huge hit! There are images of people getting on and off planes in the book and because of the small airport we initially left from, we were able to get aboard the plane just as they did in the book, which he loved! And though you would think these books wouldn't appeal to girls, even The Littlebug picked the Plane book out yesterday as her book of choice. "Now, onto the technical side of the book. What I, as a parent, really like about these books are the simple text and straight forward images. It's not going to be the most beautiful book on your shelf, nor will the words be drawn out and elaborate, but it still holds an entertainment and educational value I can't deny. Each page has between 3 to 5 words with a simple illustration demonstrating the text. For smaller kids it can often times be overwhelming to have a book filled with words and dramatic images, but these books though not elegant are still captivating. I highly recommend these books for beginning readers and even for older children who may need a respite between larger, more complicated books."

This is a collection of PLANES, BOATS, & AIRPLANES which I have all for my 2 1/2 year old granson. Very colorful, basic stories about transportation.

My son loves trains of every shape and size. We can never get enough train books! This one is very accessible for 2-3 year olds. If your child, like mine, loves vehicles of all kinds and enjoyed this book, you might like some of our other favorites including Freight Train Trip, Airplane Flight and The House That Mack Built.

To be honest- I don't know what the draw is to the Byron Barton books, but I know my kids love them all. Trucks, Trains, Planes, My Car, Little Red Hen, Three Little Bears. All of them are read over and over and over again in our house.

My 2 yr old son loves the Byron Barton books. They are small and easy to take with you in the car or on vacations. They have cute simple illustrations and short sentences on each page to keep their attention. We read this book over and over.
