This book has been a firm favourite with my 4 year old for nearly 2 years now. She loves all of the illustrations which relate to Indian culture and never fail to prompt a lot of discussion. Add in that she loves trains and it is a lovely counting rhyme means this book is a definite winner in our household, read over and over again.
This book is a great read for two reasons. I would use it in my class for a math lesson, because the kids in the story ride the engine and count up to ten. It is also a mulitcultral book, because the story links back to the Indian culture.
