My toddler (almost preschooler) is currently in a major “train” phase, loving all things trains, and one of his favorite activities is to look at books about trains together. Whether it’s the Busy Train Book that has a pull-back train that goes down the track (his favorite to play with when I need a shower) or the On the Train shine-a-light book that lets him find hidden images on the page with the use of a flashlight, he loves his train books!
