"Locomotive
Whistle whine.
Engine thunders
Down the line."

In this rhyming bedtime book, vehicles wind down for the night and roll off to bed. Luminous paintings depict a little boy playing with toy engines in his bedroom, and life-sized engines in the outside world. The soothing text and large, up-close pictures of vehicles such as trucks, planes, and fire engines will make this a favorite bedtime or naptime story for little ones who are fascinated with things that go. The Spanish and English texts are set in two different colors for easy readability.
