"ABC Train" - a bookwrap


ABC Train

Created by Thomas Burns
Ages 2-5

Unwrapping some fantastic illustrations for you

About the book

This book is written in rhyme with very good cadence.  Kids get to travel from letters A-Z aboard the ABC train.  

"A is for automobile
Zooming through the town.

B is for backup,
A big Slowdown."     ... the train starts chugging... and the passengers are on their way.

The train slows down for places that kids will love such as a candy factory, Ice Cream land, a ride on a rollercoaster, inside a bat cave, and the kids are privy to a rare spotting of a yeti and zither player just to name a few.  

The book is interactive as some pages you turn sideways to read and one is completely upside-down.  What fun!  The cartoonish- illustrations are colourful and full of detail and action.
My only problem with the book is the text is so small, written all in upper-case letters and very hard to read.  It makes a very difficult read for me (the adult) and almost impossible for a child to do so.
