In this rhythmic read-aloud, all you need is an imagination to experience the thrill of a great train ride.
When a girl shouts “I can make a train noise, now!” her imagination transforms a coffee shop into a zooming train, and her words clickity-clack across the tracks and blare like a train horn.
In a flash, salt shakers and ketchup bottles become skyscrapers, and the girl’s voice rattles along the tracks with “I can make a train noise I can make a train noise.” Her voice whistles “Nowowwwwww!” The propulsive, rhythmic text that mimics train sounds is sure to captivate all kids, pair it with gorgeously detailed artwork and you have a read-aloud like no other.
