Oh, how fun! This is the story of the train getting all the people on board and then setting forth through the land of businessmen and school children and ladies having tea. It's a good one for those children who are looking to their books to teach them all about the world. These are the ones who study the pages carefully and you can just see their minds soaking up the information like a sponge. This is also a good one for the kids who love to interact and make the sounds of the world. As we go along the train station clock goes 'tick-tock, tickerty-tock: and 'the whistle blows: Woo-woo, woo-woo'' and the fireman 'mutters, Shovel-shovel, shovel-shovel.' This is a great story time book and a wonderful read aloud.
