Thank you to Chronicle Books for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

An unabridged board book version of the bestselling hardcover, perfect for small hands! 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, and kangaroos stuff the hopper car with balls (while zebras referee). Dreamy illustrations and gentle rhyming text make this a beloved bedtime favorite for budding train enthusiasts everywhere.

This New York Times Bestseller is back and now it is available as a board book! We love this book and we are excited that little readers can now add it their library collection.

Steam Train, Dream Train is full of imagination, silly fun and wonderful writing. Each page is not only rhyming, but the mixture of sounds and descriptive action words help this book to just flow right out of your mouth. Everyone will enjoy reading it over and over again!

Watching the different animals load up the train with bouncy balls, pogo sticks,  and ice cream (to name a few) is like watching a child's imagination come to life in a book. The monkeys, dinosaurs, elephants all know what to do and it is as silly as it is delightful to turn each page and discover what they are loading on the train.

This book is the perfect length to keep children's attention but the story will keep anyone captivated. This is the perfect nighttime story to read with your young readers!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
