Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—As dusk falls, an African American boy sits in bed, clutching his stuffed bunny and reading a book of the same name. ("Sleep Train. Jiggling down that track. Ten sleepy cars going clickety-clack.) The types of train cars are named and counted, up to 10, with a mostly effective rhyme. The boy is in the last car, the sleeping car, counting train cars instead of sheep, until his eyelids lower and he falls asleep, while the train keeps chugging along. The rich and jewel-toned illustrations of the sky turning from orange to violet as the book progresses, and the soothing rhythm, make this a perfect bedtime story. VERDICT This bedtime book about counting (and identifying) train cars will be a winner as a read-aloud and in storytime.—Ramarie Beaver, Plano Public Library System, TX

Review

Praise for Sleep Train:

“The rich and jewel-toned illustrations of the sky turning from orange to violet as the book progresses, and the soothing rhythm, make this a perfect bedtime story.” –School Library Journal
 
“Eldridge’s artwork is fully engrossing... a daytime delight for young railroad enthusiasts taking inspiration for their own layouts. Those will absorb the attention of young viewers who are less somnolent than their adults had hoped.” –BCCB
 
“Lyrical.” –Kirkus
 
“London effectively uses repetitive sounds that echo both a train’s rhythm and the soothing sounds of a lullaby. Eldridge’s sculptural images create a fittingly dreamy world.” –Publishers Weekly
