Why not, when it's as attractively produced and sure to please as this one? Sandwiched between an attention-grabbing gallery of locomotive headshots and elevated closing views of a pair of crowded rail yards lit by a low sun, the author introduces rolling stock, past and present-from quaint cog railways to state-of-the-art bullet trains, plus an array of freight and tank cars. The inimitable author of Seymour Simon's Book of Trucks offers a companion volume featuring the same sort of huge, bright, sharply focused color photos paired to succinct descriptive and historical commentary. The sharp pictures cover half of each spread. The section on freight trains delves into each car from boxcars to the now-obsolete caboose. Ages 7 to 9.

These pictures are paired with an informational paragraph making this a great read for students because they can see the pictures of real life things, and also learn about them at the same time.

But never mind. Why not, when it's as attractively produced and sure to please as this one? Do we really need yet another book on trains for the picture-book audience? He was a teacher for more than twenty years, has written more than books, and has won multiple awards.
