I Dream of Trains

I Dream of Trains
I Dream of Trains
Johnson, Angela
The poignant words of two-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Angela Johnson and striking images from fine artist Loren Long join forces in this heartbreaking yet uplifting picture book about a boy, his love for trains, and his adulation of one legendary engineer.

Papa says
it's the sound of leaving
that speaks to my soul...

A young black boy toils all day long on a cotton field where his one escape is watching the trains go by on the nearby tracks and imagining they're carrying him somewhere far away--maybe with Casey Jones at the helm. But when the boy loses his hero, will he lose his dream, too?
