Trains by Rod Green

These action-packed books are a little boy's dream. Turn the pages to reveal a pop-up vehicle that springs to life before your eyes. Go on an adventure and watch the carriages chug past the grazing cattle or marvel at the super-sleek bullet train speeding along the tracks. Each train is illustrated with a bright colourful pop-up spread and zappy text by Rod Green. Read the final spread with fun facts about each of the featured vehicles and watch young imaginations go wild!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
