Today’s picture book is Trains Don’t Sleep by Andria Warmflash Rosenbaum and Deidre Gill via @raincoastbooks a rhyming story about the power and majesty of trains. Filled with two page oil paintings this book is a wonderful read aloud.
For smalls soothed by rhyming text this is a gorgeous bedtime book. For inquisitive smalls who love trains and mechanics, this book features three kinds of trains with an information page filled with terminology at the back. Changes in weather, time of day and scenery allow for lots of “things to spot” in this detailed book and descriptive language teaches new “sound” words as well.
Recommended for smalls 2.5 and up this is a lovely gift book for train lovers and rhyme lovers alike.
