Night Night, Train - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Tommy Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

The sky gets darker and the stars get brighter, and together we board the Night Night Train to head to Sleepytown. All aboard! The train theme appeals to all children, particularly little boys, and the sweet cadence of Amy Parker’s rhymes will make bedtime quick work for parents. Full of dreamy illustrations of a family of puppies boarding a train to Sleepytown, Night Night, Train will soothe young children before bed.

My Review:

A darling hardcover book told in rhyme, Night Night, Train is a story that soothes to sleep and lets children know about God's hands taking care of us.  It includes a colorful array of animals, some of them being cats dogs, bears and mice.  The creatures board the train to Sleepytown, with stops on the dining car and parlor car.  This book can be read at any time, but is especially sublime when told at nighttime right before bed.

Win It!

One person will win a Night Night, Train children's book.

I rode on a train many years ago. I went from West Berlin to East Berlin for a day. We had a sleeper car too. It was a wonderful experience.

I have ridden on a train-- several, actually! The two biggest trips w/ train travel were:
-- When I was 16, I traveled with two friends out to Colorado to go snowboarding.
-- In my early/mid-20s, I saved up enough money from working and was fortunate to be able to travel around Western Europe for a few months.
-- I just remembered the Big Third Trip With Train Travel: In my late 20s, I traveled around Eastern Europe by myself-- I did a lot of traveling my train then.
