The big train and the little train each steam to Timbuctoo, far down the track from Kalamazoo, in a fun-to-read fantasy.
Nice art, fun story, and lets kids compare their toy trains to the real ones.
We're not sure WHY there are two trains to Timbuctoo, but hey.
This has been a favorite bedtime story. The repetitious words and the rhyming make it fun.
You GOTTA make all the sounds. Clickety clack, DING DING DING and a DONG DONG DONG, and everything else. If you let yourself get into the rhythm of the words, it lulls like riding on a railroad. Be sure to read the last stanza over and over in a voice that decreases to a whisper; they almost fall asleep during it.
This is a read-aloud story that everyone can enjoy.
This is just a fun-to-read story.
