Toot is a little red train who wishes he were as big and strong and fast as the other trains in the railroad yard. Try as he might, he's never able look as mighty, pull as much, or go as fast as all the others. But when there's trouble on the track, Toot learns that sometimes being small and slow and steady is just what's needed. A great read-aloud book for bedtime or anytime.
