A rhyming train story that's great for bedtime. Includes train vocabulary and some silly animals!

I got my 13 month old the board book version. Definitely gets five stars for the quality of the writing. However, after reading it to my daughter a few times and decided it was way too advanced for her. She had no interest in the book. The illustrations are intricate and don't have a lot of contrast because the story takes place at night. Not the best for my little one who likes bigger illustrations. Also, I felt like the anthropomorphism was too much for her age. I take a Montessori approach to reading and all the animals doing human things just wasn't the best fit for a one year old, IMO. I might consider this again when she is older.

Very well written story, you can almost hear every sound. Wish it was available in a board book, but it is a very imaginative bedtime story great for all ages

A perfect bedtime book for young train lovers. In a dreamy nighttime world the steam train fills up with animals and fantastical cargo. Monkeys play in the gondola-car's sandboxes, and polar bears eat ice-cream in the reefer car. it is definitely sleepy time by the time the caboose arrives red, shiny, and full of good friends.

Can't go wrong with trains and the idea/concept of this book is wonderful. Rhyming gives it a lulling quality while being a clever and exciting book for the imagination.

All little boys love trains and this one is whimsical and fun and will perhaps even lull them to sleep if you're lucky!

This book leaves a nice feeling, everything in the book is very positive. Our 3 years old likes it very much as a bedtime story. The only thing I find could be improved: all illustrations are very dark.

I love the illustrations and the rhyming text. Wonderful story about things that go, imagination, and trains. Great bedtime story too!
