5 out of 5 stars on GoodReads

The Wild Zoo Train is leaving the station, and the conductor calls out, “All Aboard”, while the children pile into the cars. One little girl is very concerned that their stops are not on the Zoo Map, but the conductor safely shepherds the children through the jungle, the desert, savanna, and
Antarctic, with a surprise destination at the end that is definitely NOT on any Zoo Maps.

When the children disembark at each place, the conductor tells them to look out for various indigenous animals, and the cartoon illustrations of the animals are colorful and they each have funny expressions on their little faces.
One of the best things about this book is that each time the train leaves the station for a new journey, the writing describes the sounds of the train speeding up, whistling and tooting, clackety-clacking along the tracks, and finally slowing down with a long whoosh at the new destination. Reading this book out loud and making all the train sounds would be the most fun part!

I recommend this book for ages 3-6, and I insist that readers make the train sounds out loud while they read!! haha! Adorable and fun!
