Simple, simple text and pictures. It didn't do much for me but a four year old boy would go nuts for this book.

My 2YO loves this one. The colors are great, and he likes turning each page and naming the cars. This is a great one for toddlers!

This book is good for both infants and toddlers. When they are young they will enjoy the bright colors and simple modernistic train representations. When they are older, becuase it is a sparse book---it will help them undersand motion and the parts of the train. Good for a child that likes architecutre and trains as well.

If your child likes trains this book is perfect for a young toddler. Bare any words. But the images come across strongly. I give it a "B"
