Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–This bedtime story is likely to strike a chord with young listeners. A gentle, rhyming text intersperses train noises with a getting-ready-for-bed routine with a railroad-inspired theme. Brightly colored cartoon illustrations picture children in their beds being pulled along by the engine. They ride through tunnels, over bridges, and past fields of sheep. The words flow fairly well, with only a few minor skips, and the sounds mixed with bedtime sounds (Rock-a, rock-a, rock-a, rock-a–Shhhhhhhhhhh! Shhhhhhhhhhh!) will delight youngsters and have them chiming in. The acrylic-and-collage artwork curves around the spreads and encourages page turns. Clever backgrounds, including a sign that declares, Dreamland 20 winks ahead, ensure that there is plenty to look at, and the journey ends effectively with the children asleep and the words, Good night, train./Good night. Libraries in need of more train or bedtime books will find this a useful and enjoyable addition.–Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT

Zoom down a train track headed for Dreamland with this beautifully illustrated book. This quickly became my sons favorite book (and he has many). From the fun rhyming verses to the gorgeous pictures this book has it all. My son is 2 and going through a train phase so this book is the perfect thing to send him off to Dreamland. We blow our train whistle and cuddle on the bed. He's already memorized sentences from the book and it's the first book he actually has handed to me and insists I read. This book would be perfect for any child. It makes the whole bedtime ritual very fun and my son just knows it's time for bed when we're done. The illustrations are so vivid and detailed that they are great for teaching what certain objects are. I recommend this for all parents searching for that perfect bedtime book.

This is such a fun and whimsical book for kiddos who loves trains. My 2 yr old is obsessed with trains and frankly, I'm tired of Thomas all the time. It's such a nice change, it rhymes (which she loves rhyming books.) It's a fun adventure about the train rocking them to sleep. The artwork is colorful, fun and interesting as well. The only way this book could be better is if it's a board book so little curious hands can't rip it. This one is a hard cover with a paper slip cover which kiddos can rip as well as the pages.

This is a very good nighttime book choice for the train obsessed. Besides have a good rhyme and cadence, the artwork is cute, with highlights of humor tucked away in the pictures. My son is five and still likes this book.

Four Stars ::: Nice Artwork: the art covers the entire page and the colors are vivid without being too eye-popping. Very Good Read-aloud: the 'ssshhh' and 'husha' sounds are soothingly worked into the rhyme.

Love this book in hard back.. Forgot it on vacation so I bought the kindle version... Horrible layout, duplicate pages, just not worth it maybe for a $1 book but I feel its unacceptable for a child's book.

My 3 year old son LOVES trains so we were excited to find a new train book for our bedtime routine. It's a fun story with silly pictures. The train passes through many interesting places on it's way to bedtime. My son enjoys pointing out all the oddities in the illustrations--mostly to draw out the story!

18month old loves this book and asks my husband to read this book again and again and again and again and just doesn't stop to go to bed. My husband had to hide the book by slipping it under his shirt to get my son to forget about the book and go to sleep.
