Trains Go - Steve Light So 'trains and trucks' should probably be its own genre of preschool book. I was wondering how this one could possibly be any different from David Crews' whole series. Not much. The impressionistic style is similar in many ways. But I did enjoy the presentation of lots of different kinds of trains. The double-entendre of 'go' for both motion and the noise something makes was fun. Unfortunately, the caboose page is obsolete. You'd have to go to an old-time train museum or ride a historical train to even know what a caboose it.

The long format was really interesting, and probably sets this book apart from others at the bookstore. Maybe a pain for librarians and teachers because of the odd size? Unless the board books go in a bin.
