Annotations for Freight Train


Baker & Taylor
Brief text and illustrations trace the journey of a colorful train as it goes through tunnels, by cities, and over trestles.

The train rolls along slowly at first, slowly enough to count the cars, name their colors, and identify their functions, until it starts to pick up speed, chug-chugging across the page in a blur of color, speed, and sound. Reprint. Caldecott Honor Book.

HARPERCOLL

In powerful words and vibrant illustrations, Donald Crews evokes the essence of inexorably rolling wheels, so that even a child not lucky enough to have counted freight cars will feel he has watched a freight train passing.

A book truly for the youngest child -- and for every one of us who has been that child.
