Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
<p>Red caboose at the back, orange tank car, green cattle car, purple box car, black tender and a black steam engine . . . freight train.</p> <p>In simple, powerful words and vibrant illustrations, Donald Crews evokes the rolling wheels of that childhood favorite: a train. This board book features sturdy pages and is just the right size for little hands.</p> <p>This Calecott Honor Book features bright colors and bold shapes. Even a child not lucky enough to have counted freight cars will feel he or she has watched a freight train passing after reading Freight Train.</p> <p>Donald Crews used childhood memories of trains seen during his travels to his grandparents' farm in the American South as the inspiration for this timeless favorite.</p>
