Children will learn about the different cars of a freight train as it whizzes by in this beginning reader!
In the third of three Scholastic Reader titles introducing children to different vehicles, children watch a freight train pass by, car by car. First comes the engine, bold and strong, and then come a flat car, a boxcar, cars with chickens and hogs, tank cars, refrigerator cars, and more! Simple rhyming text describes the function of each car, and colorful illustrations bring them to life!

PreS-K. "Lights flash and bells ring. Down, down goes the gate. Here comes the freight train. We watch as we wait." In this Scholastic Reader, a puppy in jeans waits for a train to pass, while his father points out the passing cars: "Tank cars for gas. Tank cars for oil. Refrigerator cars where food won't spoil." A few train terms (piggyback car) will challenge some children, but the subject in the bold-printed words usually becomes clear in the appealing illustrations, with flat colors and crisp shapes that give the appearance of computer-generated art. Expressive portraits of the smiling, blue locomotive will easily appeal to new readers or to young listeners who are passionate about things that go. Gillian Engberg
