Children’s Book Review:  Alphabet Trains by Samantha R. Vamos

Definitely a cute idea. And one that that I can see kids drawn to.

And, to be honest, I thought some of the letters were really reaching. And that some of them just didn’t make any sense.

But then I felt a little bit stupid reading in the back a little more information on each of these trains.

The trains on every page either represent a definite type of train or the name of a specific train. I think it might help if the book had an intro stating something like that. Then it wouldn’t be confusing. Unless I’m just easily confused.

Overall, it’s pretty creative – and I’m amazed that the artist could give each train its own personality. There’s definitely not a lot of overlap in design – which is an impressive feat with so many trains.

Recommended – especially if you know a little one that likes trains.

Thanks to NetGalley and Charlesbridge for a copy in return for an honest review.
