Description

A trio of wacky animals invite readers to hop aboard and learn all about trains. From steam trains to diesel trains, all different types of locomotives rattle through the pages of this appealing picture book. The zippy wordplay and zappy art will delight pre-school train enthusiasts. An audio CD attached to the inside back cover allows children to listen to the story and follow along with page turn cues. This popular picture book series makes learning about vehicles more fun than ever before. Each of the "Amazing Machines" picture books features lively rhyming text and bold, bright pictures of fun animal characters. A picture dictionary at the back of every book helps build vocabulary. Four "Amazing Machines" with CD were published in June 2007, and a further six titles will be published in October 2007.show more
