"Trains are humming, coming near/ Coupled cars from front to rear. / Rumbling, grumbling screech and squeal, / Rolling, trolling wheels on steel." Celebrating the timeless, universal appeal of trains, this book for readers 4 to 7 is likely to appeal to parents and grandparents as well. The rhymed couplets in Andria Warmflash Rosenbaum's bedtime story have an appropriately lulling effect not unlike the pleasant clatter of a train, while Deirdre Gill's dreamlike oil illustrations of locomotives and their cars in scenic, vaguely 1940s locales—including farming country, a rural station, and Brooklyn—have an undeniably classic feel.
