    Even busier and more crammed full of words than "What Can a Crane Pick Up?", this collaboration between Lowery & Dotlich is only for die-hard train fans.

    Rationale for choosing this book:This book is in the collection of books written by Rebecca Kai Dotlich. As the adventures take off in this story, you could use it to review a variety of grammar skills. If you have read other books by this author, students will be engaged by the vibrant pictures and simple story, so adding a grammar lesson to this read aloud would work nicely.Opening Moves:Alerting the students to the various grammar and figurative language structures used in this book will help them see how those forms of language can be used in a variety of ways.Today we are going to read the book,All Aboard! . We have been learning about _________. (The teacher can choose the grammar skill or figurative language they want the students to review. Some good choices would be prepositions, onomatopoeia, nouns, or verbs as these are all plentiful in the book.)Who can tell me about ____________? (Again, this is the same skill the teacher mentioned in the previous statement.)Turn and tell your neighbor some examples of ____________. (The same skill the teacher mentioned in the previous statement.)As we read today, let’s listen for more examples of ____________. (The same skill the teacher mentioned in the previous statement.)When you hear an example, raise your hand and we will have you share it with us.Resources:Pinnell, G. S., & Fountas, I. C. (2006).

    The dream of an alternate timeline, where America has a robust and effective passenger rail system. One that can effectively transport people to where they need to go in a timely manner. Sure, the book touches upon the freight which dominates the rail system in reality, but only briefly.The ghost town is an interesting landmark for the train to pass. Are we to believe that the railroad brought economic ruin to the town and it no longer stops there, or did the railroad never stop at that now desolate settlement?Look fast or you'll miss them! Click-clackity-click.

    Rhyming text with a pleasant, lilting cadence and impossibly adorable pictures (even the thunder clouds are smiling!). The winning illustrations plus the perennially popular subject matter (trains will never go out of style with the under-5 set, even if they're an outmoded form of transportation) pretty much guarantee that this one will never be on the shelf. :) (Had to add a smiley face cause that's just what Mike Lowery's illustrations do to me.)

    This rhyme-filled train adventure will keep readers engaged from beginning to end as they pass through ghost towns, explore the various things I train can carry, and experience a visit from a friendly mechanic. Accessible illustrations and plenty of fun sound effects are sure to win over even the littlest listeners.

    With distinctive illustrations from Mike Lowery (Ribbit, Rabbit), All Aboard celebrates a train ride as we see humans on the train and learn what else is transported by trains as it passes through many locations. Fun book for a transportation unit.

    A pleasant cadence and informative text appropriate for preschool and early elementary readalouds, this is a good addition to any train or vehicle story time. Some of the spreads were too busy for my taste, and the handwritten lettering felt sloppy, but the cadence of the text made up for it.

    I loved this one even MORE than WHAT CAN A CRANE PICK UP! Both will appeal to the same audience--kids who love fun words and rhyme, and especially kids fascinated with transportation. The text is fun but also quite beautiful, and the sound effects are great!

    With really adorable pictures and catchy phrases, children are whisked away on a train adventure. The colors are lovely and I love that the little speech bubbles rhyme with the text. Recommended for ages 4+

    This is a great book for young children who like trains- there is a lot of interaction in the story and fun pictures and word bubbles to keep children interested. Great for ECE ages!

    It's possible that I liked this one so much because I love trains. But the illustrations are fun too, and so is the rhyme.

    I am not a big fan of rhyming verse but Dotlich did a nice job with the text.

    I like that the speech bubbles are part of the main rhyming text. It helps with the flow of reading. I'm going to try it out at Storytime.

    Train travel across the open plains leads to friendship and adventure for two travelers. Sights, and sounds makes for a pleasurable ride from beginning to end.

    Mama got this for me from the library and I've been asking for it every night! We had to buy our own copy because I love it so much.
