In simple, powerful words and vibrant illustrations, Donald Crews evokes the rolling wheels of that childhood favorite: a train. This oversize edition (17 1/2 x 14 3/8") is perfect for sharing in a classroom or library.

This Calecott Honor Book features bright colors and bold shapes. Even a child not lucky enough to have counted freight cars will feel he or she has watched a freight train passing after reading Freight Train.

Donald Crews used childhood memories of trains seen during his travels to his grandparents' farm in the American South as the inspiration for this timeless favorite.

Red caboose at the back, orange tank car, green cattle car, purple box car, black tender and a black steam engine . . . freight train.
