Review

"Sayres and Slade move naturally from their truck lullaby, Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? (2012), to this nighttime serenade to all things train. In gentle scenes that reflect the colors of the setting sun or are lightened by the stars and moon under a dusky-blue sky, anthropomorphized trains prepare to bed down for the night. "Where do snowplow trains sleep / after all the tracks are clear? / Do their moms say, ‘Plow your toys, kids— / bedtime's almost here'?" The rhyming verse and illustration pair to make clear to readers the job of each train: the monorail's heavy-lidded eyes look toward the airport it services, and the subway rests under a brightly lit and busy city street reminiscent of Times Square. Trains include steam, passenger, freight, fire, high-speed, and breakdown trains as well as trolleys, and the ending suitably places most around a roundhouse under their blanket of stars…before a turn of the page reveals a boy and a girl asleep in their twin beds, their toy trains and tracks laid out in an otherwise pristine bedroom. Pair this with Kevin Lewis' Chugga-chugga Choo-choo, illustrated by Daniel Kirk (1999), for more train fun. Thanks to the popularity of Thomas the Tank Engine, 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 --This text refers to the board_book edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bed Time Train Rhymes
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 May 2020
The book is beautiful aesthetically, colours and illustrations are very appropriate for the type of book it is, not to vibrant. The quality of the book it’s self is very good. Strong and sturdy board pages, high gloss finish and is approximately A5 in size.

My two year old son loves trains and reading about them in a short humanising rhyming poem makes him really happy and allows a good flow of words for the reader.

** For the English UK reader, there are some Americanisms (Mom etc) but I personally read it as Mum, easily done, doesn’t spoil the book at all. **

Brianna Caplan Sayres used to tell her second graders, &quot;When I grow up, I'm going to be a writer.&quot; &quot;But you are grown up, Mrs. Sayres,&quot; her students would protest. Well, Brianna is still not quite sure she's grown up, but she has grown into a writer. She is proud to be the author of the bestselling WHERE DO DIGGERS SLEEP AT NIGHT? series (Random House) illustrated by Christian Slade. Brianna is also extremely excited about her upcoming picture books about outer space, including ASTEROID GOLDBERG: PASSOVER IN OUTER SPACE (Intergalactic Afikoman) illustrated by Merrill Rainey and NIGHT NIGHT, CURIOSITY (Charlesbridge) illustrated by Ryan O'Rourke. Brianna now lives in her hometown, Seattle, Washington, where she and her husband are kept busy by their two future astronauts.
