It is the summer of 1869, and trains, crews, and families are traveling together, riding America's brand new transcontinental railroad. The pages come alive with the details of the trip and the sounds, speed, and strength of the mighty locomotives; the work that keeps them moving; and the thrill of travel from plains to mountain to ocean. Come hear the hiss of the steam, feel the heat of the engine, watch the landscape race by. Come ride the rails, come cross the young country!… (més)

This book is stunning, both in its illustrations and the writing. It simultaneously tells how steam engines work while the pictures tell the story of a family traveling across the USA. It is a great book to look through and read again and again. ( )

Take a journey of the History of Locomotives through this beautiful picture book that highlights the significance, need, and creation of the Big Locomotives. ( )

A detailed story of a locomotive's journey west across the United States in 1869, shortly after the transcontinental line's completion, this is a "things that go" book for an older set of readers, packed with fascinating detail from endpaper to endpaper.

This book is very good for younger children who are into trains. It shows the History of back in the day of the Pacific Railroad and what people would wear from that time period and do on a train.

Lots of detailed information about a train heading West to California in the 1800s.
I wouldn't use this as a read aloud, it is very long, but the visuals and the way the words get bigger when more intense things are happening in the book is a cool feature. I'd have it in my classroom for kids to read on their own - it'd also make a good AR book.

I purchased this book from BarnesandNoble.com

If you haven't checked out this year's Caldecott Award Winner, then you absolutely must! Along with my newfound appreciation for Children's Literature, I decided to purchase this book as a deal I had through my B&N membership. I had so much fun reading it and enjoying the illustrations, whilst being introduced to the writings and artwork of Brian Floca. You will not be disappointed!

Locomotive journeys through a family's travelings from Omaha, Nebraska to Sacramento, California in 1869 as a result of Abraham Lincoln's involvement in the Pacific Railway Act. This act connects the east to the west by railroad, and the project was completed 5 years ahead of schedule. Through the reading and illustrations, Floca transports us across the US and provides the reader a learning experience along the way. There's just enough history and detailed illustration for older children to observe, while younger children can chug along with the rhythm of free-verse and onomatopoeia.

Floca also provides a curriculum guide to use Locomotive as a tool for educational purposes. He shows how to develop a sense of integration between text and illustration to build knowledge for students and children. Resources can be found in the sleeves and inside covers to establish foundational learning and maximize comprehension. Floca has taken the time and effort to provide readers and educators multiple options for retention.

Honestly, I am very impressed with Brian Floca's ability to balance text and illustration. Most authors I come across who attempt to wear both hats of "Illustrator" and "Wordsmith" tend to lack in one of the areas. Not in this case. Not only does Floca succeed in accomplishing both, rightfully being accompanied by the Caldecott Award, but he also goes above and beyond to ensure that it is a true learning experience complete with vehemently researched facts. He purposefully changes font, size, and color to keep the reader interested and retain a mental image of the information.

In my opinion, Floca's artwork is beautiful. Just an interesting little tidbit, it took him 4 years to produce Locomotive. Although, in his own opinion, watercolor isn't his forte nor his first choice, he's produced amazing work worthy of reward.
