The next classic for your adventurous child's library! A zoo train full of children takes a mysterious turn into the wilds. As each train trip becomes more and more wild, curious children observe the whimsical world around them! Written by Carmela LaVigna Coyle, the bestselling author of the Do Princesses... series, and illustrated by Steve Gray, of There Was a Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea fame, Wild Zoo Train takes readers on a wild, animal-filled adventure through canyons, jungles, the arctic poles, and more! 

My Thoughts: 
This train will take you on the journey of your lives. It is no ordinary zoo train! This train will take you all over the world and to the moon and back! Wild Zoo Train is a fun and adventurous romp through several different biomes all across the world, from the jungle to the Antarctic and highlighting animals from each. 

This is perfect for beginner readers with it's repetitive phrases, rhymes, and onomatopoeia. 
The full color spreads and fun illustrations will keep your little ones entranced and entertained!

My little one adored all the animals and the wonderful train sounds!
