Nice natural story about a family waiting for trains to pass by. Give the noises a lot of expression as you read this and the kids will love it! ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0763604380, Hardcover)

A far-off sound, clanging bells, flashing signal lights, and rib-resonating warning whistles can only mean one thing. A train is coming! In Here Comes the Train, Charlotte Voake--creator of the award-winning Ginger--brilliantly captures that delicious suspense in whimsical, color-splashed line drawings and enthusiastic text: "Louder and louder, nearer and nearer it comes! Sparks shoot out from its wheels! All the children wave like crazy. The engine driver waves back; he hoots his horn, Beep-BARP! The children hold their breath and... WHOOSH under the bridge it goes!" This charming, simple book about a family's trip to the local train tracks cheerily chugs to its final destination as young William whispers, "Here comes the train!" over and over to himself before he falls fast asleep.

Every Saturday, Chloe, her little brother William, and their father bicycle to a footbridge over the railroad tracks and wait for the trains to come thundering under them.
