When nine-year-old Mayann takes a summer train ride from Nova Scotia to New York City, she discovers a bustling new urban world, and learns valuable lessons along the way. Former Nova Scotia Lieutenant-Governor Mayann Francis wrote this old-fashioned children’s story. And “old-fashioned” is in no way a putdown. Mayann’s Train Ride is a warm and gentle tale, rich with childlike excitement. Tamara Thiebaux Heikalo’s illustrations complement the tale perfectly. Clean and classic, they effortlessly convey the exuberance of a brave young girl discovering an exciting new world.
