here do the trains go?
There and back.
Let's sing a train song
All down the track.

Toddlers love trains and the noises they make. Listen Up! Train Song uses repeating verse and bright photographs to match this enthusiasm with a unique take on the conceptual sound book that is perfect for reading aloud. Each spread uses onomatopoeia to highlight the ting-a ling! of subway door chimes, the chuff-a-gruff-a! of a diesel engine, and more. And after the children have sung along through the colorful pages, a final note to caregivers offers enriching, age-appropriate activities to keep building their child's foundational learning skills.

A first expectation of kindergarten curriculums is for preschoolers to explore sounds, rhythms, and language structures. With repetitive, easy-to-remember verse from the award-winning author of Nat the Cat Can Sleep Like That and Shape Up, Construction Trucks!, Victoria Allenby's Listen Up! Train Song invites its young audience to recognize the songs of the trainyard and to proudly sing their own.

What Worked:
Calling all Train fans! This sturdy board book is filled with vibrant photographs of different types of trains. Using words, it has rhymes and rhythms that can be explored as a musical extension during or after reading. I love books that give some suggestions or guidance for parents on how to use the book to extend learning. This book starts as a fun read for train lovers and can be extended to a vocabulary or musical exercise. It is a great addition to preschool books about trains.
