How to Train a Train by Jason Eaton - ESSENTIAL

Eaton, Jason Carter How to Train a Train, illustrated by John Rocco.  PICTURE BOOK.  Candlewick, 2013.  $17.  Content: G.  

John Rocco’s illustrative style is perfect for this book about how to find and train your very locomotive.  Full of helpful advice, including playing soothing train sounds and how not to spook your train, this is an adorable book and the wisdom can be applied to almost any new pet or friend.  Just to forestall any haters, Eaton adds a footnote that he doesn’t really recommend anyone standing in the middle of tracks in order to catch a train.
