From the Publisher:
Choo choo! A train is passing by! Can you count the cars? Can you name the colors? Where is the train going? There's only one way to find out—all aboard the freight train!
A bilingual edition of the classic Caldecott Honor Book for the youngest child.
¡Chu-chu! ¡Pasa el tren! ¿Puedes contar los vagones? ¿Puedes nombrar los colores? ¿A dónde va este tren? ¡Sólo hay una manera de saber todo sobre el tren de carga!
Edición bilingüe de este clásico Libro de Honor Caldecott para los niños más pequeños.
This simple book introduces young readers to colors and to the proper names of types of train cars. The book begins with the words "A train runs across this track," and an illustration depicting an empty set of train tracks. Boldly colored illustrations then show a red caboose, an orange tank car, a yellow hopper car, a green cattle car, a blue gondola car, a purple box car, and a black tender car--all of which are attached to a black steam engine. At first, the train is stationary, but as the text progresses, the train picks up steam as it travels through tunnels, by cities, and over trestles. The book then comes full circle, once again showing an empty set of tracks, this time with only a whiff of smoke as a reminder of the train that quickly passed over them. Combining two popular children's book subjects (trains and color identification), FREIGHT TRAIN was inspired by the author's childhood fascination with freight trains and is a 1979 Caldecott Honor Book.
"Clear bright illustrations show all the cars of a train bringing the reader the excitement of movement through day and night, country and city."
