Folding out car by car, this accordion-style book takes readers on a tour of what’s inside a train. Each car has something to find—things that make loud noises, things in different shapes—and along the way, a little child searches for his missing hat. The back of the book is a running landscape dotted with objects for children to find and count. All Aboard! Let’s Ride a Train is a fun, interactive ride from beginning to end.

"This delightful board book unfolds to become a train almost 6 feet long with lots to explore in each car . . . In each car there are colors to spot, shapes to find, noisy things to identify, and lots of details to take in. On the verso, there is also much to see and identify as the train makes its traverse from countryside to urban setting. Young children and their adult readers will find plenty to keep them engaged. Right on track!"

"Zippy cartooning and an abundance of idiosyncratic details make every scene worth poring over."
