The Rain Train

The Rain Train Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All aboard! Take a train ride through a storm at night in a rhythmic readaloud chugging with sound words and full of striking illustrations.

A pitter-pat-pat, a pitter-pat-pat,

A pittery-pittery-pittery-pat.

When its thundering down

on the roof, in the lane,

From the storm comes the call . . .

"All aboard the Rain Train!"

What child wouldnt like to hop on a train, hand over his ticket, and set off on an exciting ride through a rainy night? Safe from the elements, a young boy listens and watches— in his seat, in the dining car, and snug in his sleeper— as his train whooshes past city lights, over rivers, through tunnels, and straight on to morning.
