With stunning illustrations and a rhythmic text that rumbles forward like a freight train, this classic bedtime book captures the power and majesty of the locomotive—even as it lulls little ones to sleep.
Puffing, chuffing, never yawning
Climbing hills as day is dawning.
Trains don’t sleep, they
CLANG and HOOT
Cross bridges and canyons, plow through snow, charge down mountains, and meander across fields filled with sheep. And when it is time to rest and dreams are just ahead, never fear—trains don’t sleep so that you can.
With the feel of a classic and vivid artwork that captures the power and majesty of trains, this is a fast-paced rhyming ode to the locomotive.
