Busy Wheels: Train is on the Track by Peter Bently

Train is speeding through the countryside when Dog sees a red signal. There's a fallen tree and the mail train is stuck! How can Train help to keep the mail moving? It's time to get busy with machines that race, vroom and zoom! This vibrant series is designed to excite playful pre-schoolers. Each story features a popular vehicle as the central character, and involves a group of animal characters in a supporting role. A detailed spread on different parts of the vehicle will help children to understand what makes up the machines and help familiarise them with vehicle vocabulary and noises. The new paperback titles in the Busy Wheels series are: Plane's Royal Rescue: 978-1-78493-114-8 Train is on Track: 978-1-78493-115-5 Space Shuttle Blasts Off: 978-1-78493-116-2 School Bus Saves the Day: 978-1-78493-117-9


There is plenty of technical languge to stisfy train loving toddlers, and there is even a double page spread of a labelled train at the back of the book, along with pictures of other types of trains. The illustrations are bright and simple, and action words in the text are highlighted. All in all, a great book for train lovers and one which parents will enjoy reading as well. the School librarian
