Choo-choo! All aboard A Train Journey with Gérard Lo Monaco. This unique pop-up book features four great trains from history. Each is shown in a two-page spread that holds open, suitable for display. On the back side of the pop-ups, a short summary shares information about each train.
These iconic trains are: Stephenson’s Rocket at the Rainhill Trials (1830), The New York El Train (1870), The Flying Scotsman (1862), and the Shinkansen Bullet Train (1964).
Train lovers of all ages will enjoy reading about these fascinating trains. I highly recommend it.
