Synopsis

Trains by Emily Bone

A fantastic addition to the popular Beginners series, providing an informative introduction to the fascinating world of trains for young readers. Terrific reading practice for children who prefer fact to fiction, this is an exciting introduction to trains, covering everything from the first steam and diesel trains, to modern day high-speed passenger trains. It also looks at rail networks, underground trains, how trains travel uphill, and famous long-distance train routes, like the Orient Express. It is developed with a reading expert from Roehampton University to help young readers grow in confidence.
