Overview

Red caboose at the back, orange tank car, green cattle car, purple box car, black tender and a black steam engine . . . freight train.

In simple, powerful words and vibrant illustrations, Donald Crews evokes the rolling wheels of that childhood favorite: a train.

This Calecott Honor Book features bright colors and bold shapes. Even a child not lucky enough to have counted freight cars will feel he or she has watched a freight train passing after reading Freight Train.

Donald Crews used childhood memories of trains seen during his travels to his grandparents' farm in the American South as the inspiration for this timeless favorite.

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 slide-out pages are a HUGE hit with my two-year-old and they work perfectly with the freight train theme. Personally, I've never seen another book quite like it. The colors are bright, the text is simple, and almost every page holds something exciting to be found.

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.
