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.

This book is about trains and how they don’t sleep. The words in the book rhyme which makes it really fun to read! I enjoy reading this book because it is very interesting and descriptive. This book is a really great book because I love books that rhyme! I don’t want to give some of the words that rhyme so if you would like to hear some of these rhyming words than this book is definitely for you. It also tells us that trains travel almost everywhere and is not afraid of heights. The moral of this book is that trains never sleep! Rating 2/5

Trains don't sleep--
They CLANG and HOOT,
Reaching stations on their route...

A great rhyming read-aloud for train lovers! This story is followed by a short glossary that lists and describes the various types of trains and railcars, such as: freight trains, steam trains, stock cars, and the caboose.
