This was my favorite book as a child because I had the great relationship this book talks about with my GRANDFATHER. He would take me for walks to the train station and now everytime I hear a train whilstle I think of that time with him. Now I will enjoy sharing this with my children.

Each time I read this story I have tears in my eyes. The author captures the grandparent-grandchild relationship so beautifully. Children and adults can connect with the characters & events.
