Really enjoyed. Would imagine a child up to 5 would enjoy having this read to them and then a child 5 to about 8 would like reading it for themselves.
"I liked that the little boy had a toy steam train dream train! [at the end.] I liked the part where the t rex got a bone. I liked learning about the different cars, and the words that said steam train dream train. They called it dream train because the animals are all dreaming and they are sleeping on the train and they got refreshing snacks. I like when the animals got out and were doing their chores."
Clearly he was paying attention and many of the parts caught his fancy! I personally like the sleepy palette and the cute animals all working together nicely.
It's fun to read and there are excellent rhymes but one of the most interesting things is that this book includes almost everything your young boy (or maybe girl) probably likes. Such as?
Trains (Obviously), with different types of train cars.
Zoo animals riding the train and going to sleep on the train
A Dinosaur along with the zoo animals!
Toys like a plane, Mr Potato Head and blocks
Different colors of taker cars
A giraffe driving a digger and dumping balls in a train car!
An of course a toy train at the end.
Everything wraps up nicely with a boy sleeping soundly in bed. My 2.5 year old just loves it and it is a staple for us at bedtime and I imagine will be for many years. We check out a lot of books from the library as these are not cheap but this one is worth buying. A new classic!

The illustrations aren’t so engaging as quite dim and dark (it is the dream train) but that hasn’t stopped my two year old from enjoying it.
My son is train mad, and this book with its lovely illustrations and rhyming tale throughout is perfect for bedtime. He chooses it so much to be read to him. It’s nice to find alternative train books to Thomas that are appropriate for this age.
