Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ru Story-Huffman
This lyrical book is fun for all ages. Even the youngest child will soon learn the "symbols" and be able to "tell" the story. Pictures representing repeated words are inserted into the text. As the parent reads to the toddler, the child can recognize the striped cap introduced on the previous page. The story gets longer with each additional picture until a myriad of items is included. The poetic text is nice and soon becomes a refrain as each line is repeated. The illustrations are nicely colored and presented with just the right amount of detail for the younger audience. This book could also be used to illustrate a choral reading activity, and as a way to involve adults in the reading experience. In all, a wonderful book to be used in a variety of situations.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-The successful team that produced The House I'll Build for the Wrens and We're Making Breakfast for Mother (both Greenwillow, 1997) are right on track with this new cumulative, rhyming rebus. A blond boy dons an engineer's cap, gives a roll call of his locomotive and cars, and then offers a cheerful journey over trestles and through crowds. Although the trip begins to drag somewhere in the middle, the target audience will hang on until the end. In a humorous twist, readers step back to view the model railroad strewn throughout a disheveled home. The boy's mother says, "I have a request (I don't think it's too hard):/Before going to bed, pick up this freight yard,/because during the night I'd like to refrain/from taking an unplanned trip on your train." Parker uses watercolor paints, colored pencils, and black pen to create dedicated reproductions of No. 1 scale model railroad cars.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

    My son's favorite book!

    My 2 year old son picked this book out at our last trip to the library, while trying to find Thomas books. This one became his favorite the first time we read it! He loved it so much that he recites the lines from the book whenever he flips through the pages of other books! I will be purchasing it for his birthday. I really enjoy reading this one with him!

    What a cute children's book!

    As a mother of four boys, trains are no stranger to our home. This is a great read-along book for children, and Mom thought it fun too!
