All aboard! Recently named a Top 10 DVD of 2014 by School Library Journal, hoopla users young and old will enjoy "Locomotive" from Dreamscape, available instantly on hoopla digital. 

It’s the summer of 1869. Trains, crews and family are traveling together, riding America’s brand new transcontinental railroad. Locomotive’s pages come alive with the details of the trip: the sounds, the speed, and the strength of the mighty locomotives; the work that keeps them moving; and, the thrill of travel from plains to mountains to ocean. Come hear the hiss of the steam, feel the heat of the engine, and watch the landscape race by. Come ride the rails, come cross the young country with Locomotive!  


A Top 10 DVD of 2014
“Locomotive speeds ahead of the rest…” – School Library Journal

Starred review. “Dreamscape Media delivers a visual work worthy of its inspiration...Locomotive speeds ahead of the rest” - School Library Journal (video review)

★★★  “Backed with a folk-like soundtrack and sound effects of engines and crowd murmurings, the handsomely-produced Locomotive features realistic colors in illustrations reminiscent of the style of Quentin Blake. Recommended.” - Video Librarian
