FYI - my on is 3 years old and studies the drawings for hours on end
The book is also a great inspiration for imaginative play - it's almost impossible not to try to copy the idea when playing with a train set after reading this book, and my son can spend ages making longer and longer trains.
All three combine beautifully to make a book that can be enjoyed by children and the adults reading to them. It is about more than one train - the illustrations show a whole transport infrastructure of ships, planes, bicycles, construction vehicles and road traffic in various locations - the city, the harbour, the forest and the quarry. There is lots to explore in this world.
Both my sons enjoyed the Little Red Train books again and again from 2yo to 5yo. I always enjoy reading these stories to them.
