    One thought on “Rattle and Rap”

    1. What a great sound book! Excellent rhythm in this book that really mimics the feeling of a chugging train. The words all flow and fly and gallop across the pages as the illustrations show the train in all its different places and stages. Great read aloud for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, I think!

    2. Take a trip on a train. Torn paper collage illustrations and the familiar sounds of a train in motion give readers the feeling they're speeding down the tracks and through the city and countryside. A good read aloud for toddler and preschoolers.

    3. I would use this book to have the students use their imagination to add more words to the book. The book only has sounds that the train makes and how it looks to people and what the people are doing on the train. I would have the students make a story of it during a writers' workshop.

    4. "All aboard! All aboard! Bustle and fuss, bustle and fuss. Rumble, rumble, rumble, roll. Rattle and rap, clickety clack." There’s nothing like a visit to the sea, and what better way to get there than by train?

    5. Very cute picture book about trains, though it is in the non-fiction in our collection, this is a book for the very youngest, and honestly doesn't convey any information. As an informational book it is a failure, but as a picture book it is a win!

    6. Young train enthusiasts will love this book with all the sights and sounds one would encounter on a train ride. Boldly illustrated.

    7. With Jack's love for trains, this was a big hit. I loved the intricacy of the torn paper designs throughout - such detail! A really neat book.

    8. Alliteration and onomatopoeia made this fun to read aloud. Unfortunately, the busy pictures distracted from the simple text.

    9. Cool picture book about riding on a train - illustrations (torn paper collage) are standouts. A lot to look at in each spread; brings back memories of riding trains in the UK!

    10. Rhythmic onomatopoeia (sp?) about riding on a train. Begs to be read aloud. Intricate cut-paper collage illustrations.

    11. Another train book. It's nice enough, but it faces some stiff competition (Cooper's Train probably tops that list) favorite quote: "Swishing and swishing and swishing and swaying, hurrying, hurrying, hurtling by, rocking and rolling and rushing and racing, skimming the sky, skimming the sky."
