Great for adults, too!  Jan 10, 2008
Those of us who are older often didn't have books like this to learn from. I'm 58 and my father is 88 and we live in an old town with trains. Boy, did we enjoy this book! Coupled with a more pictoral/photographic book on trains, one can really learn a lot! Get it. You won't regret it!
Train Crazy  Jul 6, 2006
My three year old son is Thomas crazy and I thought this would be a good addition as he grows to broaden his knowledge. He loves it, it has many wonderful pictures and blurbs of information.
book just FULL of information!  Mar 1, 2006
My nephew (4 yrs. old) just LOVES this book! We checked it out from the library .... and after returning it decided to order one for him. While it is not something that all children will like, if your child is into learning facts while at the same time LOVES trains, then this is one for him/her. I would highly recommand this book to add to your home library .... or if you are a teacher, for your classroom.
For Train Lovers   Jun 21, 2005
This is a non-fiction book all about trains, from the oldest to the newest, with layers of detail. This book is part of the DK Eyewitness Books series. The history, the details, it's everything we come to expect from the DK Eyewitness Books series. If you liked trains, you'll read this at a much deeper level. Each page has a summary paragraph that tells kids what's on the page; older kids and much older kids will read every word of every caption to absorb every detail in this fantastic book. The littlest reader will love seeing all the pictures of the trains and train paraphernalia. There isn't much you won't learn about railroads and the history of trains in this book.

A Fascinating Look at Trains  Nov 1, 1999
My four-year-old son and I checked this book out from our local library. The colorful pictures held his attention while I read the interesting facts and figures. The book is arranged so that readers of various ages can all enjoy the wonderful world of trains. We've decided to add this book to our family library.
