Title: Animals Aboard!
Author: Andrew Fusek Peters
All aboard for dreamland! There’s a party on the train, and all the animals are jumping on board with their musical instruments. As the wheels start rolling and the horns start tooting, the pace grows quicker and quicker and the party gets wilder and wilder until — poof! The horns go quiet, the party draws to a close, and the animals are all tucked in bed, lulled to sleep by the train’s restful rhythm. The story’s delightful text mimics the movement of a locomotive, making it fun for children of all ages to read aloud.
