Tear the ticket.
Load the freight.
Sound the whistle.
Raise the gate.
Clank! Chug-chug! Whoosh!
All Aboard, Letter-lovin’ Railroad Buffs!
Author Samantha R. Vamos is here to tell us all about her clickety-clack-cool new rhyming picture book Alphabet Trains (Charlesbridge, 2015)!
Not too long ago, we had so much fun cruising and vrooming through Alphabet Trucks (Charlesbridge, 2013), that we were pretty excited when this shiny new book hit the rails.
Since I’m especially fond of trains (blame it on the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” and the fact that I met my husband in London while he was designing a railroad in Algeria), I was anxious to ask Samantha a few questions about writing and researching this 26-track gem.
A is for Auto Train,
Load your car on the rack.
B is for bullet train —
high speed on welded track.
