Train off the Rails - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.


Green Toys, a company known to use 100% recycled materials and US-based manufacturing, is serious about being eco-friendly and safe.  Green Toys has expanded into the book category for the first time with the launch of three new hardcover storybooks penned by co-founder, Robert von Goeben. The series of three 32-page hardcover storybooks build out the Green Toys world by establishing narratives around the popular Green Toys Construction Trucks, Sport Boats, and Train, so kids will see their favorite characters embark on exciting adventures throughout the pages and can re-create the story with their toys.  The books are printed in the USA on 100% post-consumer recycled paper with soy inks.  The three books in the line-up are Train off the Rails, Boats Built for Speed, and Mixed-Up Trucks.

Of the three, I received Train off the Rails.  It tells of two bears, Kody and Dot, who are delivery bears for a train.  It's the same routine for them day after day.  On one particular day, the train jumps off the tracks and the bears take the opportunity to wander off the tracks on their own.   They come across other methods of transportation and take notice of boxes that had earlier been on the train.  Kody and Dot come to realize that their job is important.

The book is told in rhythmic form and the illustrations are cutesy and colorful.  Train off the Rails can be purchased by itself at Green Toys, or as a gift set that includes a toy train.


Win It!

One person will win a hardcover book copy of Train off the Rails.

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*

I love to fly in planes and feel what it is like to be above the clouds. But I also love to travel in a car because it allows you to see all the great scenery around you.

I prefer to travel by car. I HATE flying. I used to drive for 10 hours to avoid a 1.25 hour flight.

I love trains and poky, non-express busses. There's something about the "we're all in this together" of public travel, plus I enjoy being able to relax and look around at the scenery you don't get a chance to look at while driving on the interstate. Planes are scary, plus they just get you there too quickly. The journey is one of the best parts of the trip.

I really prefer to travel by car. There's nothing like a good road trip! Boats are alright but I tend to get seasick. Planes scare me to death and I've never been on a train, though I'd love to someday!

In all honesty, I love train rides, but the jarring makes me a little nauseous. I guess I prefer automobile travel.

Of those listed, automobiles!

...but I'd really rather walk or ride a bike :)

My favorite mode of travel depends on how far I am going. I like to travel by car when going distances I can reach in 5-6 hours. Being able to stop at shops or sites along the way and enjoying the beautiful scenic surroundings make the trip special.
