9780060562274: Whoo! Whoo! Goes the Train

On Allan's first train ride, every twist and turn brings a new sound.

Clickety-clack!

The train goes over a bridge.

Clang! Clang!

It nears a crossing.

Whoosh!

The doors slide open at a station. But Allan's favorite sound—

Whoo! Whoo!

—doesn't come until the very last stop, when he gets the best surprise of all.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–This modest story describes Allan the kitten's first train trip, accompanied by his parents. He soaks up all the sounds, smells, and sights as the train travels over bridges, through a tunnel, and past a cow pasture. The family arrives at the perfect destination for the train-loving feline, Trainland. Here the story abruptly ends with Allan riding an old-fashioned steam locomotive, leaving readers wondering what else he will find. The book has a more defined plot than Rockwell's Trains (Dutton, 1988; o.p.), which introduces modes of train travel, and a few color concepts are included. Unfortunately, the flow of the story is interrupted by the continual change of the text's placement. Sometimes the words are printed within the illustrations, at other times the text stands alone on separate pages, and in one instance it is on the white border above a picture. The vibrant, stylized artwork overflows with bold colors and has the look of animation cells; it also includes interesting details not found in the text. The striped endpapers are eye-catching. An additional purchase for libraries needing more picture books about trains.–Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH
