10 and Up
5 to 9
Read to kids ages 2 and 6 years old.
Buy. It is a great reference book that will spurn your imagination to think of railroad days gone by.
The littlest reader loves seeing all the pictures of the trains and train paraphernalia. When our now first-grader was two or three, he was pronouncing his first Japanese word, shinkansen ("bullet train") based on reading this together.
If you like trains, you'll read this at a much deeper level. Each page has a summary paragraph that tells kids what's on the page; older kids and much older kids will read every word of every caption to absorb every detail in this fantastic book.
The history, the details ... it's everything we come to expect from the DK Eyewitness Books series.
