The Pullman Porter I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review. No other consideration was offered, expected or received. Beautiful artwork, well written, interesting, educational. This is a good book to use during Black History Month or when you are teaching your kids about trains. There’s a lot of information in this book that led to lots of questions from the class and train play in centers. Usually they all fight over who is going to be the conductor or the driver. This time they fought over who was going to be the Pullman Porter. :)
