The Train To Maine by Jamie Spencer

The Train to Maine captures all the thrill of a train ride to a beloved vacation destination. With a pace as lively as that of a moving train, the rhyming text portrays a child's journey from the bustle of downtown Boston to the delights of Down East Maine.

This story of excited anticipation proves the journey is as important as the arrival. Along the way, visions of blueberry pies, lobsters, and more dance in the travelers' heads while lighthouses and other classic Maine landmarks fill the views from the train. Those who've wondered what the term Down East refers to will have their question answered too.

Even today, this book, along with the nearly 1,000 other books published since, is a testament to the enduring appeal of Maine. The Maine mystique is difficult to express in writing, but you know it when you arrive here and feel it.
