Title: Train Leaves the Station
Author: Eve Merriam
Ages: 3 years – 5 years
I keep reading this book thinking I am totally missing something and it will soon become clear. My 3-year old and I are not really enjoying it. It has drawings of completely random things that are only pictured because they rhyme with the number being covered on that page. My son wants to know why there is a beehive floating in the sky over the train on the number five (rhymes with hive!) page. At least I can tell him that it rhymes. Still not sure about the berry on the bush...
