Freight Train tells us the different train car names and color names.

I like this book because I'm nuts about trains! My favorite part is the steam engine because it makes all the train cars move. I like the pictures. Donald Crews makes black, puffy clouds of smoke. He makes the train look fast by smearing the colors and making the smoke go backwards. This book tells you that a train crosses a trestle and that it goes through a tunnel. I have a train set with one tunnel and a trestle bridge. Now I can read these words.

You can learn the color words and you can know what the train cars are if you read this book. You will feel great with this book.
