By J.Prather TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 22, 2012
Format: Board book
Trains Go is a great book for toddlers, most especially young train lovers. All of the great train sounds (Whooosh, Ding-Ding, Toot-Toot) are here and coupled with energetic, colorful illustrations depicting different kinds of trains. From speed trains to steam engines, each train dashes across a two page spread while the reader gets to make the accompanying sound effects. The book is a strange size - it's long and thin shape adds to the feeling of motion you get when you see the trains chugging down the tracks. It's big enough to use with a group, and I would certainly encourage you to do so. When I shared this with a group of one to two year olds today, I think I had just as much fun reading it as they did listening. I know that I had everyone's attention from the first page, and that is a rare thing! Kids will love to hear this one over and over again, just as long as the reader takes the opportunity to explore all the great sounds to their fullest potential. The sturdy board pages guarantee that this book will withstand lots of repeat readings. It's too much fun to be missed and is going in my permanent story time collection right alongside Donald Crews' Freight Train.

We bought this for our 20 month old toddler, along with a train set, for Christmas. He loves this book! It's very simple and focuses on the sounds each train make, not much real vocabulary, which is fine because he has many other books for that purpose. It's just overall a lot of fun! He especially enjoys the speed train going "Whoooooooooshhhhh!". His friends who come over love this book, too!

My son used to look for this book every single time that we visited the library. Finally I thought to check for it on Amazon. So glad I did! Steve Light knows how to capture a child's attention with both illustration and sound. We LOVE reading his trains, planes, trucks and boats books. They're both entertaining and enjoyable.

I work at the library and do storytimes for babies and toddlers, and Steve Light's books ALWAYS go over well with the littles! The fun sounds are easy to get carried away with, and the bold letters and illustrations work perfectly with the long shape of the book. I adore the whole series!

We checked this book out from the library but unfortunately had to return it. My 14-month-old wants us to read this again and again now that we own it. The original vendor sent the wrong book but refunded our payment and let us keep the college textbook they sent by mistake. Once we ordered it from Amazon with Prime shipping, it got here in the requested two days in great shape along with another book.

The pictures and onomatopoeias are very engaging and my son is starting to get the sounds down by himself. Every time he sees a train now he says "ding ding!". We also own "Trucks Go" by Steve Light and he loves that one too.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE this series by Steve Light. We love them so much we are starting to buy them for friends (who are also reporting LOVING them). Great sound words that keep kids attention and interest! The 2 year olds we know that own them ask for these books and "read" the sounds to mom & dad!

No plot. Just pictures of trains and the noises they make. "It's short enough that reading it ten times in a row (because they kept asking) is still good. Plus, when I didn't want to read it an eleventh time, the six-year-old read it to the two-year-old, complete with my gestures and inflections. Not since "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See" has a book been so popular with the children I love.

We take care of our precious grandson during the week. We have been reading to him since he was two months old. He has enjoyed it from the start. I'm always on the lookout for a durable, well-illustrated, interesting book. I read the reviews on Trains Go and thought it might be a good addition to our library. Excellent choice!!! He is 7 mo & LOVES this book. When you are reading to him he turns to look at you when you make the sounds. The look of delight on his face is priceless. The book measures about 12" wide by 6" high. Each page as a colorful illustration of a type of train and the sound it makes. This is the time to really let your inner vocal talents out. When that "zoooooooooshshshshshshshsh" sound appears on the page in smaller, then gradually bigger, then gradually smaller letters, give it all the softness and loudness and length it deserves. Your listener will reward your effort with an irresistible smile time after time. Then....read it again!
