    Hardcover ´ Locomotive ePUB Ì locomotive book, Locomotive PDFMany childhood obsessions come down to sheer scale Whether it’s dinosaurs or trucks the modern smog belching dinosaur euivalent or even princesses adults are large no matter how you approach them size matters But the kids who loves trains hold a special place in every children’s librarian’s heart Train lovers are the nerds of the toddler world They revel in complexity And as with all obsessions some kids grow out of them and some become even enthralled What sets Brian Floca’s Locomotive apart from the pack is the simple fact that not only does his book speak to these older children who never uite let go of their love of the choo choo but there is enough uniue text in this book to rope in readers both young and old who’ve never given two thoughts to the train phenomenon Couching his uniue work of history in a you are there framework Floca gives context to a slice of American history too often glossed over The results uite frankly surpass any nonfiction work for childre

    Hardcover ´ Locomotive ePUB Ì locomotive book, Locomotive PDFHm So this is the Caldecott winner from 2013 and I admit that the pictures are amazing The book is amazing too packed with information about traveling across the country by steam train just after the joining of the two great railroads The format is excellent and the information is presented in a fun way But my personal criteria for picture books is that you should be abl
