My son received this book when he turned 2. He was beyond ecstatic... we went through a lengthy period when he insisted this be read to him every night. And in a fit of exhuberance about the story - sounds - pictures ripped up some of the pages. So I then bought a board book ... and another paper copy, which I gave to him when he was 3.5 years and less likely to rip pages. My son is 5 now and still enjoys it. I have given this a gift to other children as well, since my son rated it so highly.

The story is a very colorful story about the trains. The rhyming story delights the littlest of children and they love to participate in the reading. It is a favorite of my great grandchildren and their friends when we have story time, before naps or when they just go to pick a book to have it read. The older children love to read the book themselves. All in all it's a fun book

This is one of my favorite children's books. I love to read it aloud in my library story times, and whenever a new baby enters my life, it's one of the first board books I give them. The pictures are bright and friendly, filled with color and interesting---but not overwhelming---detail. The text patters in the rollicking rhythm of a train, and the rhyme scheme never feels forced or awkward. Older listeners love to join in when the train hoots, "Whoo-whoo!" while younger listeners sometimes insist on hearing the story read as fast as possible, just for the joy of the rhythm. Don't be surprised if your child reads this book to tatters!

I gave this book to my 1 year old grandson for Valentines Day. He loved it. I think we had to read the book to him at least a dozen times that day and I'm sure his mommy and daddy have read it many more times since then.

After wearing out our first copy (paperback) of Chugga Chugga Choo Choo, we replaced it with the new boardbook format. Now this story is included with every baby shower gift. The story, pictures, and rhyme are engaging and fun for the reader and listener. After reading it a gazillion times, you get pretty good at the train whistle!

Grades- 1-4. The book seemed to move kind of slow. Good illustrations for art but not a strong story line. A train is always useful for kids cause its something they relate to. The noises made in the book were great.

The Illustrator Daniel Kirk did an amazing job with attractive colors. The book is thirty two pages long. It has a repetition of the trains whistle. The train passes through several places before reaching the bed for a good safe night.I automatically loved the pictures. It didn¿t seem to catch my attention as being overly astonishing. However, the children that I read it to loved the book. I read it to them three times ever time they got more involved. I had the children say the ¿Whooo! Whoooo!¿ with me. They really got into making the train sounds. You can also talk about the places the train passes by. Also talk about the different characters in the book. Discuss how each character is helping the train get to its designation.

My little 15 month old girl loves this book! The illustrations are brightly colored with all her favorite toys. It rhymes well and has a nice cadence (like a choo-choo going along the tracks). She loves saying "Whooo Whooo" along with the train! It's not too wordy - it fits her attention span nicely - but the rhyming isn't dull either. I don't find myself dreading reading this book *yet again* like some of her other rhyming books. An A+ read for an active toddler! :)

We love this book at our house. The chugging of the engine and whoo of the train make it incredibly interactive. There are great pictures which inspire children to build their own train worlds. I strongly recommend this.

I love this book! This was my son's favorite book. He loved trains and we use to read this book often. We would pretend we were pulling on the train horn and yell out "Choo-Choo" each time we read that part of the book. A MUST for train lovers!

My son is 2 now and he loves this book. It was given to us as a gift from my aunt who has two younger children and it had been her son's favorite book. My son Connor has to have this book read to him each night before bed. My husband and I both enjoy it as well and even after an entire year of reading it each night we are not tired of it. The colors are great and all the additional fun things to pick out in the pictures are great.

This book was given to my son around the age of 2 and he loved the bright illustrations, the rhythmic text, and the sound of the train that repeats through the book. I think it is a great book to read aloud to a child.

this is my sons favorite. He is now 21 mos and we have to read it to him several times a day. We need to buy another one because we have already worn this one down by use and want to have one for a keep sake, so buy 2.

I love childrens books, and as a parent and a nanny this is one book I think every child should experience! My son 18 mnths loves this book and loves to say chugga-chugga choo-choo while I read with him, then flip through on his own repeating the same phrase. I've given it as books to other children and they all love it as well. It's a great story with wonderful pictures. I can't say enough about it!!

My two year old son absolutely loves this book! He has it memorized and reads the words right along with me. Our first book is wore out, I am definitely going to make sure that he gets another one!

My almost 2 year old loves the book as much as my 5 year old does. The illustrations are amazing and the story flows starting at the beginning of the day right until the end when it is time for good night. My little one makes a sad face when we say 'good night engine...' I do agree this would make a great board book.

I have given it for a gift several times also. My son just loved the rhymes and went about quoting it every day.

My two little ones want this one over and over, and I am delighted to notice new things almost every time we read it. The rhyming is right on for toddlers, and the clear, bright pictures are full of surprises and very clever. It will be one of my favorite books to give as gifts from now on.
