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.
