Chugga chugga choo choo. Here comes the train. And it's rolling down the tracks in this vibrant picture book! Follow it along and count the birds that join the trip.
All aboard, and all join in as the cheerful little train chugs past the seaside, the farm, the forest, the city, and into the station for a nice long rest. Along the way, a flock of noisy seagulls and blackbirds, pigeons and geese hop on for the ride. Kids will have fun looking at Emma Garcia's colorful, collaged landscapes and counting all the honking, cooing, tweeting birds.

This is a great storytime pick, with great repetition. Children will love saying, "Chugga Chugga Choo Choo" along with the reader, and the bird sounds towards the end are a lot of fun.

The acrylic collage artwork is nicely done, with the train in bright red with the numbers 1-4 on each of the passenger cars. Observant readers will notice that the number of birds in each passenger car corresponds with its number.

Wonderful use in storytime. Can be read to and enjoyed by all age groups in a birth-5 storytime.

Excellent pick for Preschool or Family Storytime. One of the best books to demonstrate our 6by6 skills: Notice Print All Around You and Talk, Talk, Talk. Pairs well with the song, "The Goodbye Train."

Bright, colourful illustrations and repetitive language make this a great book to read aloud. Young children will enjoy saying "chugga chugga choo choo."
