Do not buy the nook book version. I purchased it for my daughter and was shocked at the poor quality of the book format. It is extremely small, the images are blurry and the text is impossible to read within the illustration. There is a lot of white area around the pages and it does not turn the orientation nor you can zoom in the images. I called to complain about the book and ask for a refund and need to take it up to a supervisor as BN policy is no refund for items downloaded. How would I know how bad it was if there were no previews!? They shouldn't be selling such poor quality nook books from an obviously great children's book. Scans of the pages would have been more adequate than this. It is extremely disappointed. Don't buy the nook book!!!

Low rating is for the format, not the story. Adorable story and illustrations ruined by the Nook vertical format. Not sure why they didn't do this one in landscape format since the text is within the illustratons and not below the pictures. Very disappointing.

This book is one of my all-time favorites and perfect for bedtime. The story is really fun, and the pictures are amazing! There is so much to look at on every page, and every time you flip through the pages you notice something new. This book never gets boring. I originally got it when my daughter was about 1 year old, and she loved it even at that age. When we got to the parts where the train was rolling, rocking, and bouncing...we'd roll, rock and bounce her on our laps and she would laugh so hard! The story is also very easy to read, and easy for the little ones to understand. Our book has gotten very beat up from being read so many times, and the only negative I can say is that I really wish there was a board book version so that it held up a little better. Ours has done alright so far with a lot of taping. :-) I did see that amazon has a way to pre-order a board book version, so hopefully that's coming soon. I have easily bought over half a dozen copies of this as gifts. This book is never carried in stores, though I can't imagine why. Everyone always loves this story. I think both parents and children will love it! (I found this book because Laura Huliska-Beith also illustrated "Ten Little Ladybugs" which was another favorite of ours. I love her illustrations.)

My 3 year old son ADORES this book. We read it every night (a couple of times)...a must buy!

My boys look forward to reading this book every night. They can't wait to get to bed to read this book. The words are simple and rythmic. The pictures are delightful; look closely and find some funny gems in the pictures! My three-year old "reads" this book and is learning to recognize some words because of it. A fun read! I highly recommend. I love to give it as a gift! The pages are paper, but they are a durable paper.

Loved this book and was so fun to see baby's expressions on facetime as I read it to him and showed him the pictures! He, too, appeared to love this book!

I bought this book for my six year old sister as a tooth fairy gift because she lost here first tooth! She loves it! Its the perfect book to snuggle up and drift of to sleep with. Beautyful illistrationsl about a train ride and its destination "dream land". I highly recommend this book.

I bought this book for my now two year-old for Christmas last year. I wasn't expecting it to be the favorite it has become, but it has ruled over ALL other books for the past year. It is bent, taped, a bit crumpled and much loved. There is always something silly to find within the beautiful illustrations and the story line flows well, wrapping up into a perfectly sleep-inducing conclusion. This is one of two books I am buying my sister who is expecting her first to help get her started on her own children's library. This is the perfect bed-time book for itty-bitties.
