“Whoo! Whoo! Goes the Train” is the story of Allan who loves anything related to trains.  He has train toys, train books, and a wooden train.  He enjoys watching trains at the railroad crossing on the way to the library.  Finally, the day arrives when he is able to actually ride on a real train.

Cayden:  “We like trains a lot too!  We rode on Thomas the Train when he came here.  Why does it say that the train goes ‘Whoo Whoo’?  I thought trains said ‘Choo Choo’!  I liked looking at all of the pictures in the book.  His train lamp was very cool!  I liked when the train went through the tunnel and it was dark.  I liked that he got to ride on a real train too!”

Max:  “We see trains when we are in the car to go to the library too!  Like him!  I like when the guy says ‘All aboard!’”

Parent’s comments:
My boys love trains so they were both very excited to read this book!  The illustrations were very interesting to them and they loved looking at the different kinds of trains.  I was happy to see a built-in color lesson as Max is currently working on his colors.  “Whoo! Whoo! Goes the Train” by Anne Rockwell is the perfect book for the little train lover in your life!
