***A 2016 National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) winner You’ve never seen a book like this before! It’s the story of a train moving across the American landscape—but with an actual three-dimensional miniature train that loops up and down and across each spread, traveling along an interior track from front to back without ever leaving the pages. Move the red steam engine out of the depot and to the front of the book, where the sun is just coming up over a bay, and then take a journey across wide plains, up mountains and down hills, into a city at night with its beacons of light—and finally, back to the rail yard. The panoramic landscapes are filled with marvelous details that young children will delight in discovering, and the sweet, simple rhyming language pulls the story along and will be happily repeated when it’s time to start the journey all over again. All aboard!

Train: A Journey Through the Pages Book based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Okay, this book isn't so much for the story as it is for the train. What do I mean by that? Well, you see, you can drive the train though the book! It can travel through each page as you go along, even while flipping the page! Pretty nifty if you ask me. Other than the train, the story that is inside is rather simple, but the illustrations. They are absolutely gorgeous and they are a great way to work on colors with your little! Each page is just so vibrant and hosts a main color theme. It is really quite nice to look at. Your little may not even realize they are looking at a book and may think they are just playing, but that just makes this book even better. Unless you have my kid. She has figured out how to take the train out (don't worry you can get it back in). This review is based on a copy I received from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are mine and mine alone. Find more of my reviews here: http://readingwithcupcakes.blogspot.com/
