The Goodnight Train by June Sobel

Cover Image

Cheerful yet soothing rhymes take kids to dreamland, as they jump on the Goodnight Train.  The Goodnight Train leaves at sunset and rolls through the darkness, the kids aboard the train tucked in with their jammies on and their teddies in arms.   The train finally pulls into home, lulling kids with a “hush-a, hush-a, hush-a, hush-a-sleeeeeeeeep” and everyone aboard heads off to dreamland.

The illustrations are sweetly cartoony, and done in soft blues and muted colors to help convince kids that it’s time for sleeping.  There is much to look at here, with funny signs and lots of animals getting ready for bed in unexpected ways.

A fun book for train lovers, and a great book for bedtime, as well.
