Train by Judi Abbot (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E, semi short 'n' sweet review)

4th August 2014, Little Tiger Press, 32 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Summary from Little Tiger Press
Little Elephant LOVES trains! But Cat wants to play with his plane. Penguin wants to play with his car. And Rabbit would rather play with his digger. How will they learn to play together?

Nayuleska's thoughts 
This funny read teaches a lot about sharing, and how trying new things/toys for a change isn't a bad thing - you can still go back to what you love later. This can be an important learning curve for children as they grow up, making this an essential read on any bookshelf. I thought it was clever how the children met and responded to each other with their individual favourite toy - I laughed a lot even when they got upset because their expressions matched with the simple answers amused me. Their passion for their favourite toy is quite remarkable to see.
