Wild Zoo Train - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Rowman & Littlefield.  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:

This zany Wild Zoo Train is off on a mysterious adventure! Choo-choo-choo goes the Wild Zoo Train. Ding-ding-ding goes the bell on the roof. Clickerty-clack go the wheels on the track. 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. Wild Zoo Train takes readers on a wild, animal-filled adventure through canyons, jungles, the arctic poles, and more!

My Review:

A hardcover book with cute and zany illustrations, Wild Zoo Train tells of two kids who happen up on a zoo train.  What they don't realize is that this train isn't going to your ordinary zoo.  It takes them on a journey to a canyon, the Amazon jungle, an African savanna, and Antarctica.  On each stop the kids encounter species who live in those particular regions.  

This book is short and fun, with wacky animal illustrations.  There is some repetition every few pages, describing how the wheels on the track go Clickety-Clack and the bell on the roof goes Ding-ding-ding.  After reading it a couple times, I think kids will get a kick out of memorizing the repetitive verse.  Take your kids all aboard the Wild Zoo Train!!
Win It!

One person will win a Wild Zoo Train hardcover children's book.
