About this title


During subway rides that are a result of spending weekends with his father, a young boy discovers that, with the help of his imagination, he can take the train anywhere, even to a time when his family was together.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-Rush combines a child's enjoyment of a subway ride with a sensitive portrait of a family in recovery. Though he used to be afraid of trains when he was "little," Chris, now seven, loves them. When his father picks him up for the weekend, he anticipates their journey and pretends he is the engineer. Ever the good sport, Dad enters into the game with the same youthful abandon as the boy. As they throttle through the darkness of a tunnel, Chris imagines that he can take his train anywhere, illustrated by three wordless, double-page spreads. The tracks pass by a sunlit park, a museum, and a dock at sunset. The telling detail is that each location shows the child with both parents. As they climb the stairs to the street, Chris asks if they can go to "one of those places" where they used to go with Mom. After a moment, Dad agrees. Children will be reassured by the way that both parents show their love for their son, even though they no longer live together. Rush's impressionistic, bold strokes are perfect for portraying both the hectic world of the subway and the serene quality of the boy's memories.
