Summary

Little Elephant LOVES trains. One day, Mommy and Daddy take Little Elephant for a ride on a real train, and Little Elephant is so excited! But on the train, Little Elephant gets angry when no one wants to play trains with him. Cat wants to play with his plane. Penguin wants to play with his car. And Rabbit would rather play with his digger. How will they all find a way to play together?

School Library Journal Review

Toddler-Little Elephant has a one track mind. He's obsessed with trains and wants to play with nothing else. His parents arrange for a ride on a real train as a special treat, and he has the opportunity to interact with other youngsters. He meets a cat, a penguin, and a bunny, each of whom advocates for a different toy vehicle. Little Elephant wants none of it until the toddlers and the toys get mixed up as the train races through a tunnel. The resulting spread includes the repeated chant "Train-plane-digger-digger! Train-plane-car!" Little Elephant learns new words on the outing, including "Friends!" This is a colorful, fun selection for those who love their machines. Whoo! Whoo! © Copyright 2015.
