A Train Goes Clickety-Clack

"A Train Goes Clickety-Clack" by Jonathan London

This simplistic preschool-age picture book explains how trains can be old or new and fast or slow. It explains that some trains transport cattle, steel or people.

"A train's boiler hisses. A train's bumpers bang. Trains crawl up. Trains ROOAAAAR down. Trains blow whistles--CHOO-CHOOOOOOO--and rumble through town. If I were an engineer, I could make the train go."

Jonathan London has authored similar books called "A Plane Goes Ka-Zoom!" and "A Truck Goes Rattley-Bumpa." 

Furthermore, it reminds me of a collection of Byron Barton's books which are even more simplistic. You could use Byron Barton's transportation books for 2 or 3 year olds and Jonathan London's transportation books for 3 or 4 year olds.
