Lovely New Picture Books

A young girl lives in a little house by a train track in the middle of a vast prairie. Each morning, as the train whizzes past, the girl waves at the engineer and he waves back. Though the train engineer comes and goes, “his wave and her wave together made a home in her heart.” The girl wonders about the engineer: Where does he come from and where is he going? Does he like his uniform and engineer’s cap? And she wonders if she might go away some day, too.
