Little train lovers with a one-track mind will gain a new affinity for their bedtime routine when they find they share it with their favorite vehicles. "Sayres and Slade move naturally from their truck lullaby, Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night?, to this nighttime serenade to all things train. Hopeful engineers will want to be able to identify the many different types of trains, and their out-of-the-know adults will appreciate this inclusive primer." --Kirkus Reviews
