Everything you need to know about finding, keeping, and training your very own pet train.

Finding advice on caring for a dog, a cat, a fish, even a dinosaur is easy. But what if somebody’s taste in pets runs to the more mechanical kind? What about those who like cogs and gears more than feathers and fur? People who prefer the call of a train whistle to the squeal of a guinea pig? Or maybe dream of a smudge of soot on their cheek, not slobber? In this spectacularly illustrated picture book, kids who love locomotives (and what kid doesn’t?) will discover where trains live, what they like to eat, and the best train tricks around—everything it takes to lay the tracks for a long and happy friendship. All aboard!

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute Cute book, by 3 year old is a fan. However, there is one picture that makes both myself and my husband uncomfortable - a little girl trying to catch a train by standing in front of it on the tracks! Not a problem really, but has required a few chats about how that is a truly terrible idea.
