“Here are the locomotives, the iron horses, the great machines, pulling their trains behind them.”

Join author and illustrator Brian Floca to hear and see his amazing new book on the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Seen through the eyes of one family traveling west, Locomotive captures the excitement, newness, and change that this endeavor brought to America. Kids will hear about Brian’s research, writing, and illustrating process, and will learn new facts about trains, steam engines, and the construction of the railroad.
