All aboard! Take a train ride through a storm at night in a rhythmic readaloud chugging with sound words and full of striking illustrations.
A pitter-pat-pat, a pitter-pat-pat,
When it’s thundering down
on the roof, in the lane,
From the storm comes the call . . .
"All aboard the Rain Train!"
What child wouldn’t like to hop on a train, hand over his ticket, and set off on an exciting ride through a rainy night? Safe from the elements, a young boy listens and watches— in his seat, in the dining car, and snug in his sleeper— as his train whooshes past city lights, over rivers, through tunnels, and straight on to morning.
