Locomotive by Brian Floca

For sheer majesty and the epic proportions of the locomotive, you can’t do better than this incredible knockout of a picture book. Talented writer/illustrator Brian Floca surprises us with stunning shots from unexpected angles: deep into a mountain tunnel, sideways down the tracks, inside the caboose with the engineer, or capturing panoramic vistas of a solitary train snaking through the plains. A chronicle of one family’s journey from Omaha to Sacramento in 1869, Locomotive sagely explains the inner workings of the Transcontinental Railroad in lush and fascinating detail. Perhaps the best of the bunch: This is the train book you’ve been waiting for. Ages 4–10.
