School Library Journal - 08/01/2015 PreS-Gr 1—A cheerful rhyming text and painterly illustrations created in Adobe Photoshop offer young readers a different train for each letter of the alphabet. The simple language is straightforward without letting the rhyme become cloying: "G is for Glacier Express,/a scenic, alpine glide./H is for Hurricane Turn./Wave a flag to catch a ride." Each train is featured on its own page, allowing the page turns to reveal the next type of train. The book concludes with a spread with factual information on each of the trains depicted, further enhancing the book's appeal to train enthusiasts. VERDICT Pair this with Donald Crews's Freight Train (Greenwillow, 1978) and Margaret Wise Brown's Two Little Trains (HarperCollins, 2001) illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon, for a high-speed storytime.—Lisa Kropp, Suffolk Cooperative Library System, Bellport, NY - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
