I had received C is for Caboose from the publisher, Chronicle Books, for possible review, but I had not gotten around to reading it to Kyle. It seemed a little too old for him. However, when I recently got it out to read it with him, he loved it. Each page features one or more railroad items that begins with the letter, with either an old-fashioned cartoonish poster type illustration or a real photograph from long ago. One of the best things about this alphabet book is the X page. X is for Railroad Crossing. That's quite a refreshing change from a Xylophone!
I would recommend this for train-lovers age three and up. It's been on Kyle's frequently requested list for the last couple of weeks, and I think that as he gets older and craves information, knowing some of this cool railroad history will delight him as well.
