The Little Wooden Train by Mark O’Neill is an enchanting tale for children and the young at heart.
The story shows the importance of kindness and the power of traditional toys. We also see that craft and imagination is handed down from father to son.
The simplicity of traditional toys has much to recommend it.
I found the plotline to be totally charming. It was well executed as I hung on to every word. The whole story was magical.
The book was beautifully illustrated by Su Ann. All the pictures have a simplicity but are absolutely stunning. I wanted to step inside the story.
The Little Wooden Train has a timeless appeal. It is a book to be passed down the generations as a beautiful heirloom.
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
