train to sleepytown

In Steam Train, Dream Train, Sherri Duskey Rinker and illus. Tom Lichtenheld (Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site) pair up again to give us another book that kids will love. The story is a fun, rhyming adventure ride on a train crewed by animals of all sorts: monkeys stow cargo, bunnies load freight, camels fill the boxcar with bikes, and more!

Like Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, the story flows smoothly and the pictures are great--what I really enjoyed is the soft hues that Lichtenheld chose for this book, giving it that sleepy, nighttime quality (obviously the story being set at night helps too!). This book will enchant any child who's ever wondered what's inside those train; and as the story winds down the animals themselves prepare for bed, making this an excellent bedtime book! I love this book!
