Here Come Trainmice!

Here Come Trainmice!
By Wong Herbert Yee
Ages: 1-4
Topics: trains, mice

A charming introduction to train terminology for the very young, the cheery rhyming and rhythmic language and bright colorful pictures will make this little board book a favorite. Each page introduces a new train word – track, conductor, tickets, caboose – and the mouse illustrations are adorable, with many details to explore (the guitar on the baggage cart, the mouse getting a free ride on the freight train). Adults will enjoy sharing this book not only because of the snappy rhythm, but also because of the amusing rhymes (“’Tickets, tickets, if you please.’” Dining car is serving cheese.”). Don’t miss this gem!

Wong Herbert Yee is the creator of 18 children’s books including the Fireman Small books and Big Black Bear.
