All Aboard for the First Day of School!
author: Amy Krouse Rosenthal
illustrator: Mike Yamada
All aboard! Seven young train cars are off to Choo-Choo School. After reciting their classroom rules—Work hard, play fair, be kind—it’s time for some math to get the wheels turning. Then everyone’s ready to climb a hill in gym (it’s good to blow off steam), sing songs in music (Flat Car is a bit off-key), and learn the whole alphabet! From late beloved author Amy Krouse Rosenthal comes a world where train stations are classrooms, the conductor doubles as the teacher, and Boxcar is happy to hand out tissues to anyone who ah-choo-choos. Bright, energetic illustrations by animation artist Mike Yamada bring the whole clickety crew to rollicking life.
“This appealing story is a terrific choice to read at the beginning of a school year, or anytime for train-loving children.” —Booklist
