KIRKUS REVIEW

Ehrlich doesn't make anything special happen on any particular day; she merely describes how the train passes lane's house every day and how lane stops whatever she's doing to watch it and wave to it, count the boxcars, wonder where it goes and who else waits to wave at it, and guess what color the caboose will be today. Martha Alexander's pictures of lane doing all these things have the right combination of softened reality and quiet wistfulness--for the receptive, undemanding child who is content just to watch it go by.
