Washington Junction Reviews
Cover design- simple bright colors. If a child was into trains and saw this book, they would definitely want to read it. 5 STARS
Concept- trains are at times an overdone subject of children’s books. After all there are a few popular ones, Thomas, The polar express and the little engine that could. Carlos chose to write his book on the station they stop at more than the trains themselves. 5 STARS
Plot/subplot- The plot is the station. This station sees all kinds of trains come through. With each one Carlos talks about the station and what it does for the trains. 5 STARS
Character development- this is a little tricky for this book as the characters are trains and a station. That being said Carlos did describe them really well. 5 STARS
Entertainment Level- This book is a quick read. Kids who love trains will love it. They will be easily entertained and will be able to read it to themselves. 5 STARS
Overall- 5 STARS I would recommend this book to all children’s and schools. -Reviewed by Award Winning author, Shannon Simpson
Have you ever been somewhere that was really special to you like no other? Well, just like you this train station was like old school in appearance and special to Carlos. Just the variety of people that come through on a daily basis, the different trains, and places they are going, all the many cars filled with all kinds of cargo.
Washington Junction makes an enjoyable little bedtime story or anytime quick read to spend time with the young ones and learn a little at the same time. – Reviewed by Carol
Washington Junction train station is a real place we can really visit, and we should. It's Point of Rocks, Maryland. Commuter trains go through it every day taking hard-working employees to Washington D.C. and bringing them home every night.
This slender book is chock full of beautiful illustrations of Washington Junction and the trains that go through it. Author Carlo Rosati commuted on the Washington Junction train for 15 years when he worked in our nation's capital. From his experiences come Washington Junction, a memory to be cherished and shared. – Reviewed by Janet
