All aboard everyone!Come aboard the opposites train for an adventure in a land full of dinosaurs and opposites, from little to big, from quiet to noisy and from slow to fast! This beautifully illustrated and engaging story introduces key early learning concepts and is great to share with young children.With lots to learn, spot, count and talk about on every page, this brilliant train ride is worth taking again and again!



This is a great book that follows six friends who go on a train journey through a land of dinosaurs, where they see lots of opposites which are clearly shown in the illustrations.

One of the things that I most enjoy about this book is how effortlessly the concepts of opposites have been put into a plot that is easy to follow yet doesn't feel contrived. The dinosaurs illustrate each point wonderfully, with lots of character that really engaged my toddler and I can see would be appealing to a variety of young readers.

The story is great for introducing vocabulary and talking about opposites. It would be good for use in a nursery or school as part of building language within young children.
