School Library Journal - 12/24/2021 PreS-Gr 1—A little girl enters a bustling cafe holding her mother's hand. Her father carries the baby, and their little dog runs around their feet. Every person in the busy place is either on their device or talking. Unnoticed, the little girl, who is white, says, "I can make a train noise." She continues to repeat this phrase over and over until readers get the idea that the sound of her statement is akin to the sound a moving train makes. The cafe transforms into a train throughout as she adds to her phrase: "I can make a train noise, now, now." Kids will get the idea that it sounds just like "chugga, chugga, choo, choo." Artwork is predominantly in blues, reds, and browns and is done in acrylic and pencil with added digital effects. The illustrations are filled with details of the people riding the train; there is always something to look at. This is a book that begs to be read several times through with audience participation. VERDICT A perfect read aloud for libraries where little train lovers gather.—Tracy Cronce, Stevens Point Pub. Sch.
