I want to be a train man when I get older. I want to drive a train, just like the train in my room with my little brother.

I like how this little boy imagines himself doing ALL THE JOBS: engineer, conductor, ticket agent, mechanic, yardmaster, squirrel feeder... ( )

Every little boy's dream. ( )

I liked this story, about a little boy whose dream is to become a “train man”. The primary color illustrations are a nice complement, and the sentiment at the end about sharing his love of trains with his baby brother is sweet. However, the teacher in me wishes that just once the authors would have used the word “conductor” instead of “train man.” It’s a simple way to introduce vocabulary and wouldn’t have changed the context of the story. Just my personal 2 cents. There are also 2 other books in this series, Fire Engine Man, and Digger Man. ( )
