This book is about Freight Trains, how they works and the different process the go through.
  Gervona | Jun 6, 2017 |
Summary: A brief picture book about a multicolored train with different freight cars that are all filled with different things and the journey it goes on!

Personal commentary / reflection: Minimal text, fun pictures with different colors and descriptive words. The different freight cars are all fun colors- perfect for a young reader who is learning color and how to count! ( )

This book tells about a train, the steam engine and its freight cars. The story is about where the train travels, along the track, over trestles, through tunnels, past cities, hauling cargo through the night and the day.

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.
