Freight Train is a simple book about trains that can teach children about colors and how trains move. I've read this a couple time to my three-year old toddler class and they love saying the colors that come out, as well as making train sounds.

Book description
This book is a classroom favorite. Bright and easy colors, counting the train cars, learning about the kinds of train cars and what they haul, and all the action as the train moves along the track. My preschoolers all come away from it learning the word "trestle", which feels like a very grownup word in a preschooler's mouth.
