Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>This bilingual board book edition of Donald Crews's Caldecott Honor Book is perfect for teaching basic concepts--in both English and Spanish--to the youngest child. Watch as colorful cars zoom along the track, passing through tunnels, across trestles, and by cities in Donald Crews's beloved picture book.</p> <p>Full of bright images and simple text in both English and Spanish, this is the ideal book for introducing concepts of language and transportation and color to young children. The Boston Globe called Freight Train "a color concept book of outstanding quality." All aboard! ¡Todos a bordo!</p>

Brief text and illustrations trace the journey of a colorful train as it goes through tunnels, by cities, and over trestles.

Parallel text in English and Spanish.

Horn Book Review

The sense of 'train-ness' captured in the original picture book is somewhat diminished because of the significantly smaller size of the board book. Otherwise, all the elements that made the first edition superb -- the pacing, the clear concepts, the strong graphics -- remain. From HORN BOOK 1996, (c) Copyright 2010.
