BKLYN Picture Books about Trains and Subways
Annotation:Choo Choo! Kids love trains! Especially the old-timey steam engines found in amusement parks and zoos. But what about a super-speeder in Japan that zooms on the track at 361 miles per hour? Or the world's longest freight train, stretching on for a whopping 4.6 miles?
Annotation:Introduces the history of trains, from the nineteenth-century steam locomotives that bridged the American East and West to the Japanese "pusher" commuter trains and the Scottish train used as the Hogwarts Express in the "Harry Potter" films.
Annotation:Board a commuter train in New York, then follow the journey west and see the stations, the scenery, the different types of trains, and all the people who travel and work on the railroad system.
Annotation: In this book with rhyming text, the dream train pulls into the station and all the different cars are loaded by the animal workers, each with the appropriate cargo.
