No racing in the haul-ways! From the late, beloved author Amy Krouse Rosenthal, a look at seven adorable train cars on their first day of school.
All aboard the train-car pool! A new lineup of students is off and rolling to Choo-Choo School. After reciting their classroom rules and#8212; Work hard, play fair, be kind and#8212; itand#8217;s time for some math to get the wheels turning. Then everyoneand#8217;s ready to climb a hill in gym (itand#8217;s good to blow off steam), sing songs in music (Flat Car is a bit off-key), and learn the whole alphabet, especially the letter R. In one of Amy Krouse Rosenthaland#8217;s last books, lighthearted verse portrays a world where train stations are classrooms, the conductor doubles as the teacher, and Boxcar is happy to hand out tissues to anyone who ah-choo-choos. Bright, energetic illustrations by animation artist Mike Yamada bring the whole clickety crew to rollicking life.
