Looking for a good bedtime story? I am always on the lookout for these! Bonus points if they rhyme, because I believe that children love to listen to the gentleness of rhyming verses at bedtime. It is so soothing and it makes it so easy for them to remember…what comes next!
Well, thanks to author Sherri Duskey Rinker and illustrator Tom Lichtenheld, the creators of what I am certain is one of your favorites … Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, we now have another winner to add to our bedtime repertoire of favorites, Steam Train, Dream Train.
Is there anyone out there who has a little one who LOVES choo choo trains? And what could be better than a train whose crew are a merry band of all your favorite animals – elephants, monkeys, polar bears, why even dinosaurs and kangaroos! Everyone has a job, and when their work is done…well, the flatbed cars make the perfect beds. They tuck themselves in and off to sleep they go.
I promise as you and your little darling begin to read: “Through the darkness, clickety-clack…coming closer, down the track…”
…it won’t be long before this train is pulling into slumber land station!
