Publisher Comments:

The team behind the #1 New York Times bestseller Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site returns with another fabulous book for bedtime! The dream train pulls into the station, and one by one the train cars are loaded: polar bears pack the reefer car with ice cream, elephants fill the tanker cars with paints, tortoises stock the auto rack with race cars, kangaroos stuff the hopper car with balls (while zebras referee). Sweet and silly dreams are guaranteed for any budding train enthusiasts!

This is a lovely book for toddlers! Our son can now name the various cars going by when we see a freight train. The illustrations are colorful and beautifully drawn, and the text is soothing and rhythmic. It's the perfect length for a bedtime story.

Sherri Duskey Rinker and Tom Lichtenheld, the duo that brought us the award-winning Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, have created another bedtime picture book that’s sure to be a hit with parents and preschoolers alike.

Steam Train, Dream Train is the story of a train with a very unusual crew: bears, elephants, monkeys, kangaroos and other animals. When the train pulls into the station, crew members load it up with all kinds of things kids love to play with. The monkeys bring in monkey bars (and juggle while hoola-hooping and skate boarding), kangaroos bounce balls onboard, polar bears truck in ice cream and a camel balances a bike, a kite and more.

It’s a visual circus of activity in a kid’s fantasy world. Since everything takes place at night, illustrations are muted and calm, yet still portray the fun everyone seems to be having loading the boxcars. They have the grainy look of kids crayon drawings. The combination of words and drawings is sure to stir the imaginations of little ones as it lulls them to sleep.

The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
