Freight Train Trip!

Freight Train Trip!: A Lift-the-Flap Adventureby Susanna Leonard Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Category: Lift-the-Flap Board Book

Age: 1-3+ years

Synopsis: In this lift-the-flap book, a train hauls lumber, toys, and more safely to the western shore.

Bilingual benefit: From the author of Airplane Flight!, this delightful book is filled with snappy rhymes, cheerful illustrations, and a dash of suspense. Like the airplane book, this train book has a lot of sound words (bells clang, rails hum, a whistle wails, and the train goes chugga chugga choo choo). The illustrations also fit very well with the text and the flaps keep little ones engaged.

Availability in Israel: While this book is not available in Israel, it can be ordered online at Amazon.

Previewing the book: While the book is not available for preview on Amazon, a video featuring excerpts of the book can be found on the author’s website and on Goodreads.

Lil guy: A train carrying lumber is always interesting.

Mama: Highly recommended. I would buy this again and for a friend, especially a train lover. The only caveat to my recommendation is that parents should be aware that the plot centers on two trains nearly colliding, although all works out well in the end.
