DESCRIPTION:
Red guard's van at the back. Orange petrol tanker next. Yellow grain hopper...A perfect book for introducing very young children to different colours and the concept of colour merging. The freight train moves along through tunnels, past cities, over bridges, in darkness and in daylight with its assorted multi-coloured cargo. As the train goes faster and faster the colours of the different trucks merge, until finally the whole train disappears. Widely considered a modern classic, Freight Train by Donald Crews was first published in 1978 and has sold over a million copies worldwide. THE AUTHOR SAYS...In Freight Train my premise was simply to identify a train and let it go. I had to constantly fight against showing or saying more than that and weakening the simplicity and power of that emotion.I am still overjoyed at the illustrated moment in Freight Train, after the train is assembled and identified and the next page shows the train moving. Oftentimes my young audience gasps in joy. Perfect. I didn't plan this, but I couldn't be more pleased.The images, words, and actions work as I had hoped.Not too long, not too short, just right.-
