A Step 3 reader (Reading on Your Own) that introduces trains of all shapes and sizes doing what they do best: hauling freight, carrying passengers, and sometimes even zooming at speeds close to 400 miles per hour!
Trains!…is really interesting. It covers the history of trains, the possible future of trains, the parts of trains–it even gets a Harry Potter mention in there. This level-3 reader is going right into my pile for our train party. Mike Wibzowski, librarian, Bookslide III Blog

This train is called the Jacobite. It rides through mountains and past lakes in some of the most beautiful countryside in Scotland. Mostly it takes people home or to work. Sometimes it has another job. It’s a movie star! Recognize the part it plays?
