My 2 year old son and I both love this book and other books by this author. He loves trains and will grab this book for me to read with him. Very well written and drawn. My 5 month old loves looking at the pictures and trying to grab the pages.

This is my two year old son’s favorite bedtime book. It flows so well, and he happily drifts off to sleep every night we read it. I always give it as a gift for new babies or children’s birthdays. Beautiful illustrations paired with an adorable rhyming story make this book a perfect bedtime story!

This book is such a wonderfully written book. My 3-year-old son has already memorized it and reads it to us. The pictures are playful and the onomatopoeia is so much fun, makeing story time something we look forward to everyday.

We have Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site which is by the same author and my son loves that book, we had to read it every day (he's 20 months old). Saw that the same author wrote this book and it's about trains which my son also loves...now this has become his favorite book! Great illustrations and easy to read and understand for kids. Boys seem to love it!
