All aboard—including little brother. There are bridges to cross, tunnels to go through, and mountains to climb. Vivid acrylic illustrations (2-5).


— From Transportation


There are bridges to cross, tunnels to travel through, and mountains to climb so kids can hop on board before the whistle blows.

Told in simple words from a little boy's point of view, this spot-on picture book celebrates a child's world of adventure and love of transportation vehicles.
