Booklist - Trains Chug,
March 26, 2018

“Handsome photos of trains are the main attraction in this sturdy board book. The brief text comments on a variety of trains traveling through the countryside and occasionally offers sounds, such as "Chugga, chugga. CHOO CHOO!" for kids to try. Almost seven inches square, the format is large enough to offer nice-sized double-page pictures of the trains, the tracks, and the mostly mountainous terrain. In the last scene, passengers walk alongside trains inside a railway terminal. An attractive board book for the many toddlers who watch and listen to the trains rumbling through their communities and for those who wish they could.”—Carolyn Phelan

Kirkus - Trains Chug,
July 2018

“Powerful locomotives, simple sentences, and vigorous sound effects propel the latest entry in the expanding board-book series for toddlers. This and companion volumes Boats Float and Fire Engines Rescue are the latest entries in what could just as well be called the Nouns Verb series. Like Glaser’s animal-focused board books (Puppies Chase, 2017, etc.), this trio features a well-curated selection of beautiful stock photographs and short declarative sentences, assorted sounds, and occasional questions. The simple, age-appropriate text ranges from illustrative noises (‘Chugga, chugga. CHOO CHOO!’) to more existential concepts: ‘Where does the train go? / Follow the tracks. CLICKETY-CLACK!’ The sound effects make for fun reading aloud for children and caregivers alike, with easily grasped, repeatable phrases. There is a smattering of useful vocabulary in each volume and enough variety and information in each photograph to introduce other terms and concepts as well, from scenic details (mountains, rivers, and forests, for example) to the steam from the engine’s smokestack and the passengers in the train station. The book’s 14 pages are presented in two-page spreads dominated by each photo, with text arranged on thin monochromatic strips in the margin. Sound effects are set in large, bold type, reminding readers to put some oomph into their delivery. These durable books are eye-catching, engaging, and quick and painless to repeat upon request. Chugging its way onto the bookshelves of vehicle-living children everywhere. ”
