It is a quick story that talks about a train. It will be able to help with teaching colors, and the concept of gone. It is a rhyming book and talks about its journey,over bridges and through cities.

Explores the concept of what a train is, what makes up a a train, and how a train goes, in a very primitive way. It also explores primary colors such as: red, yellow, and blue (and others). It is a lovely book intended for 2-3 year olds.

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.
