As this red caboose heads out into the world, it travels through farms and past factories offering a brilliant opportunity for children who love to search the illustrations and discover new places in their world. I loved reading this story to my children because it gave them the chance to ask questions and find out the names of so many new things they hadn't encountered before. A lovely adventure to stretch the curiosity and the knowledge of our youngest.
