Not as great as goodnight goodnight construction site, but the kids enjoy this one a lot though.

All the animals are getting aboard the dream train. Aboard the dream train all of their dreams come true. There's ice cream piled high and toys everywhere. It encourages sleep and is a sweet bedtime story. The story is written in a very rhythmic way. Warm, rich illustrations. Would recommend for very young children Pre-K-K.

This is another good rhyming night time book by Rinker. At the end of the night the steam train pulls into the station and different animals fill the cars with different items. This book uses onomatopoeias which is really fun and the illustrations were really beautiful. I would definitely read this to children ages 1-5.

A sweet story about animals loading up on the dream train. This book has rhyming through out. I do not find it to be a smooth read aloud book. I found myself stumbling on the second section of the rhyme on about every third page...it felt a little forced to me. I like the illustrations - they are dark like night time. This is a book for younger children and probably more of a home nighttime book than anything I would use at school.

I can see this being a great story to read before bedtime. Not only is it great for bedtime because of the context, but the story line is sweet and rhyming, and brings in a creative plot with animals and trains.
