Trains. Byron Barton. 1986. HarperCollins. 32 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: On the track the trains are running. Here is a train with people inside.

Premise/plot: Trains by Byron Barton introduces little ones to multiple types of trains. Passenger, freight, steam, electric. The text is simple, but not as simple as Freight Train.

My thoughts: The very fact that this book is NOT Freight Train might make it appealing to parents who've spent weeks or months reading Freight Train. I did like it. I think it makes a good read aloud. Love the amount of text on each page. The illustrations are very bold, basic colors.

Text: 5 out of 5
Illustrations: 3 out of 5
Total: 8 out of 10
