Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, read aloud book
Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 6; read yourself: 6 to 8
Age of Child: Read to 3-year-old boy.
Young Reader Reaction: My son loved the part where Wyatt Walker drives the train. He wanted to read this one again.
Adult Reader Reaction: The pictures are cute and fun, but overall, this is Okay. There is not much of a story but the illustrations are depict fun, colorful, and interesting objects. It has a mid-western wholesomeness to it.
Pros: Colorful fun illustrations carry this book. What starts out with lots of activity winds down into a bedtime-quiet story.
Borrow or Buy: Borrow. It's a book to borrow from the library.
Educational Themes: This is a book to be shared for fun. Some of Wyatt's questions might be fun for the upper edge of this target audience to explore (like why do sweaty socks stink). First-grade readers will find this good reading practice, aided by the rhyme.
