Especially for older kids--my nephew the train fanatic LOVED this book. Great info on trains as you see them in the same setting. Note that the station is the same one throughout and look for a cat in each setting. Nice generational touch, as well.

Though it was a little text-heavy for our 2-year old, the premise of the book was more original and fun than most of the train books that pass through our house. It follows 150 years of a family as each generation drives a train of the time. It even kept the parents interested.
