From Donald Crews, the Caldecott Honor artist and award-winning creator of Truck, Freight Train, and many other classic picture books for young children, this picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It’s a fun introduction to basic math concepts and as a supplement for activity books for children.
What can you do with ten black dots?
One dot can make a sun, two dots can make the eyes of a fox, and three dots can make a snowman's face.
And that's just the beginning in this unique counting book! Children will develop visual learning skills, explore creativity, and practice counting numbers, all in one deceptively simple—and fun!—picture book.
A proven favorite at home and in the classroom.
A Caldecott Honor Book
Red caboose at the back, orange tank car, green cattle car, purple box car, black tender and a black steam engine . . . freight train.
In simple, powerful words and vibrant illustrations, Donald Crews evokes the rolling wheels of that childhood favorite: a train.
This Caldecott Honor Book features bright colors and bold shapes. Even a child not lucky enough to have counted freight cars will feel he or she has watched a freight train passing after reading Freight Train.
Donald Crews used childhood memories of trains seen during his travels to his grandparents' farm in the American South as the inspiration for this timeless favorite.
