We read this way back when my son was a bitty thing, and he mostly was interested in trains. We read it again when he was six, and I wish I had a photo of the look on his face when railroad man Stormy started dismissing his wife Ida's attempts to help him find the perfect hat. My kiddo shook his head when it happened a second time, and said "No!" out loud, like he was trying to give poor Stormy some advice. He was delighted when Ida finally put her foot down and equally delighted when Stormy apologized and promised to always listen to Ida from then on. No one's perfect, but everyone can learn and grow.

My 4 year old loved this story about how the traditional train engineer hat was created. Interesting story with great illustrations - loved it!
