I bought this book for my young son because I remembered having a copy when I was a kid (no, it wasn't a first edition copy). And also because my son has caught my husband's train-craziness. This book is about the perfect length for reading to Preschoolers. The text per illustrations is pretty light, and, while longer in places, the additional length adds emphasis. It is easy to understand the caboose's internal and external conflict, and, therefore, both resolutions. The artwork is stunning, which is what I remembered about my copy. It is absolutely perfect for young train-lovers.
Great story with engaging illustrations. Any parents or grandparents who remember waiting for the caboose at the end of a train when they were kids should get this book for the child in their life. Teaches that the smallest and last in line can still be the hero. My son has had this book for four years and still enjoys hearing it.
I read this book almost every day to my 2 year old son. He loves trains and begs for the "choo choo" book. I personally love the pictures. There are dozens of objects, animals and vehicles to identify. This is a fabulous book for any child - and a good lesson for when they start understanding those things.
For any kid who is obsessed with trains. Great as a gift.
