    This book is about a Green vintage locomotive cartoon character that spreads his goodwill, with mother nature’s wonders, like constructing a Rainbow, filling a lake, making a tornado, and more, as most is written in a poetic and educational form, not only structured for a beginner, while being peppered with rhymes, chimes, and colorful Illustrations, but for an advanced reader as well, that will enjoy the definitions for each illustration, as he or she thumbs through the glossary, looking up words like appreciation, conservation, awareness, tornado, and more. A learning experience to be remembered and appreciated, may this book be one of the many your child reads and enjoys.

    About the Author:

    Alfred Guajardo was born in Loveland, Colorado, raised in Sacramento, California. My nephew and niece Juan Manuel, and Selena Rose Guajardo, asked me to write a poem for them, one thing led to another, and after a year and a half I ended up writing a book that they both enjoy, and my philosophy in reading, is that if your child is not able to read, he or she will learn sooner or later, better sooner, then later, as reading is the stepping stone towards a never ending educational journey, In due time with a little help, your child will not only learn to read but will enjoy it as well. Thank you and enjoy your quantum leap in meeting your child for a unique odyssey.
