"Dog Train" will be the perfect addition to your collection of Sandra Boynton's work - or the perfect starter item to which you will undoubtedly wish to add "Philadelphia Chickens" and "Blue Moo" etc. Rock and roll permeates this group of songs that offer hard-drivin' singalongs like the title track, as well as poetic and tuneful expressions of childhood emotions such as "Tantrum," "Wave Bye-bye," and "I Need a Nap." You and your child will love following along in the book that accompanies the CD - the illustrations are brightly eye-catching and accurate visual representations of the situations and concepts expressed in the songs. As a grandmother, I have seen Boynton's work enthrall 3 of my 4 grandkids, and just wish she'd been around for the oldest one's childhood.
