Listen Up! Train Song

(Write a Review)

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

Toddlers and babies 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

Playing with sounds and rhythms is a first step to language
development. With repetitive, easy-to-remember verse from the award-winning
author of Nat the Cat Can Sleep Like That and Shape Up, Construction
, Victoria Allenby's Listen Up! Train Song invites its young
audience to recognize the songs of the railway and to proudly sing their own.

"Train lovers will delight in this
book featuring photos of trains....[A] perfect match for story hours about things
that go. The back matter provides three developmentally appropriate activities
and prompts to increase and extend engagement with children, making this a
first purchase for the shelves." --School Library Journal Starred Review
