Here is the song of the train. Listen as it rushes past big cities and small towns. Listen as it sweeps through forests and fields and into tunnels. Hear the whistle wailing, brakes squealing, wheels rolling, r-o-l-l-i-n-g, stop. Now the train is homeward bound. All aboard!

If you have a child who loves trains,this is the book for them. It's beautifully written and illustrated. I know this because I read it to my son every night for 4 years, very poetic. Just bought it for my nephews son, who is also a train fan.
