Imagine the train pulling out of a station. This special convoy is heading towards a rather unusual destination. Its cargo: verse, especially written for drowsy children en route to the land of their dreams. All aboard for a gently rolling journey through colourful station stops with names such as Wiggletown, Zig Zag Hill, Giggletown, Strrrretch, Yawwwwwn, Groggy Grove, Snuggle Cove, and ultimately, Destination Dreamland!
Author Melanie Harby’s poetry begins exuberantly and leads steadily towards
Like a lot of other bedtime train books I have read with my son, this book takes you on a journey to Dreamland, stopping first in Giggletown, Snuggly Cove and even a town called Yawwwwwn. The train starts off fast but gets slower as its passengers reach Dreamland. Recommended for ages 2-6, 2 stars.

Rhymey readaloud for bedtime...train travels to snuggletown and calls it a night. Large bold illustrations go from active to calming as it winds to an end. Maybe a good readaloud for a younger (2s) audience at a nighttime storytime.

Henry and I read this on September 29th. Didn't care much for the story, but the illustrations were nice.

It was an okay story with a cute concept but I think it could have been better.
Cute rhyming bedtime story. All aboard the train, the passesngers start out wiggling, giggling and finally yawn, time to sleep
