Thank you to HMH for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

Puffing, chuffing, never yawning 
Climbing hills as day is dawning. 
Trains don’t sleep, they 

Cross bridges and canyons, plow through snow, charge down mountains, and meander across fields filled with sheep. And when it is time to rest and dreams are just ahead, never fear—trains don’t sleep so that you can.

With the feel of a classic and vivid artwork that captures the power and majesty of trains, this is a  fast-paced rhyming ode to the locomotive.

All Aboard! Young train fans will love reading this cross country express, featuring a variety trains doing various jobs. It's no wonder trains don't sleep. From cargo trains to passenger trains, trains are always on the go. TRAINS DON'T SLEEP is perfect for train lovers young and old. Also included in the back of the book is an illustrated train glossary. With rhythm, rhyme, and beautiful illustrations, this book is sure to be a bedtime favorite. Highly recommend picking this one up!


  1. I have always loved trains. Though never been on a real train before.. rude. None here at the top of Norway :) One day, I hope. Glad you guys loved this one :D

  2. Thank you so much for your generous review! Toot-Toot!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
