Isaac ben Leviabout this book: When I began to write the "Great Railroad Series" about the Ozark Mountain Railroad, my intent was to share historical information for children, in the setting of a fictional railroad set in the late 1940's-50's in the United States. Back then, I never imagined writing another series for much smaller children as well. However, when the common thread from customers was demand for a book series for their youngest children, written in simplified language that they could understand, the "Li'l Great Railroad Series" was born.
Here is a review from a fellow history buff about this "Li'l" series:
Andrew, the engine, is brought to the Ozarks to work on a new railroad. He is being given a fresh start. Andrew always does his best. He wants to get the job done right the first time. Soon he is training other engines as the railroad line is expanded. Andrew is very happy when the owner of the line is pleased.
The illustrations have a soft, muted feel that contributes to the calm, happy mood of the book. I would recommend the book as a bedtime story for young railroad enthusiasts. This author has a whole series of picture books that feature railroad trains. While the plot lines are very similar, any of these will inspire the young railroad buff to work hard and get things right.¬¬¬
