My little boy, Lime, picked out this book the other day. He loves trains (well, he loves anything that ‘goes’), so he was naturally drawn to this one. I hadn’t read it before and was pleasantly surprised by how endearing this little book is! It is wordless book and the illustrations are delightful.
The story follows a girl and her parents as they get on a train in the city and journey into the country. The train stops when all the adults are sound asleep. The little girl gets off when she sees that these tiny people need her help.
She rescues their friend and then gets back on the train and returns to the city.
She’s in for a surprise because the little folks visit her with a gift of a little tree. It is a beautiful spot of green in the dark city.
Summing it up: this book is beautiful, sweet, and perfect for teaching little ones about kindness and love.
All the best, Abbey
