Reviews

Full of vivacity and fun, the pictures have a warm and comforting feel with their simple lines and strong yet gentle colours. Added to this the rhythmic and bold lines are perfectly complemented by the expressive animals who learn to enjoy sharing and playing together. * - Books for Keeps * Little Elephant's terrible train tantrum is up there with Violet Elizabeth's from Just William. AWESOME STUFF. A fabulously funny picture book with a message about the importance of friendship and sharing at its heart. * - Moontrug * Train is a gorgeous little book for toddlers which they will be able to relate to on so many levels, as will the adults who read it to them: fixations on specific subjects (trains in this case, as you will have guessed!), mega toddler tantrums, learning to share and make concessions in order to make friends, learning new words and new experiences, it is all there in a really toddler-friendly format. * - Library Mice * If your little one loves anything that goes vroom, vroom, they will get fully revved up with this wonderful picture book about trains, planes, cars and diggers. * - Lancashire Evening Post * Train by Judi Abbot is perfect for toddlers who are overly-attached to one particular toy. This is a great story for introducing the concept of sharing and friendship. * - Made for Mums * A really lovely story that teaches the importance of trying new things, making new friends and sharing. Highly important life skills. A great addition to our book shelf that has been and will continue to be enjoyed by us all! * - 3 Princess and 1 Dude *
