Review: A group of animals gets ready to start another busy day of work. After heartfelt goodbye kisses and waves to their kids, each worker steps on the train en route to a full day on the job. The end of the day brings a train ride home and time spent caring for children. With its rhyming text, melodic choo-choo refrain, and cheerful illustrations, this book will appeal as a read-aloud for very young children. It can also provide a useful opportunity to talk with youngsters about different types of jobs, as well as work within and outside the home.
