Alphabet Trains by Samantha R. Vamos- ADVISABLE

Vamos, Samantha R. Alphabet Trains, PICTURE BOOK. Charlesbridge, 2015. $14.95. Readers get to see all types of trains as they are highlighted using the alphabet. The trains range from job-specific types, to trains that run in a particular part of the world. The illustrations are detailed and the trains are varied enough to make it interesting. There is a note at the back of the book that gives more information about each train. So, I really love trains. It’s an old family interest, so I knew I’d be partial to this book. That being said, it really is a fun way to experience not only the alphabet in a new way, but to see the amazing trains that exist in our world. I recommend it for any reader, but especially those who have a special interest in trains. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
