Opening: A railroad station is bustling with activity.
Summary: (from the publisher) “What can we find on the train today? Shine a light behind the page and see… From the engineer in his cab and maintenance workers on the track, to stop-and-go signals and all kinds of trains, each page will take you behind the scenes of a busy train ride.”
I like this book because: It’s a beautiful, informative and fun! Cha-ching!
Resources/activities: research some fun railroad facts, like the number of miles of train tracks in the United States; check out more in the shine a light series from Kane Miller:
