You’ll find 16 letters of the alphabet matched to an equal number of trains in this unique picture book. Each train features the letter of the alphabet and the short, rhyming text tells a little bit about each train. For example, the letter “Z” is for the California Zephyr passenger train, while “U” highlights a unit freight train and “N” is written on the engine of a narrow-gauge locomotive.

The illustrations aren’t as detailed as some train buffs might like, but for young children who like trains, they are just fine. So climb aboard and enjoy these different types of trains that also teach the A-B-Cs!
