Pre-K–In this “Mighty Express” book, Flicker the fire engine train fearlessly takes on the important job of delivering all the recycling to the Building Yard Station. A beaver creates a delay, and a pile of cans sets him back; a larger obstacle teaches our hero that a train is “never too big to ask for help!” Digital illustrations make the visuals appear to be toys come to life and will have children crowing over the excitement of this civic-minded task.
VERDICT This is a charming way to teach recycling, compassion, and collaboration.
