An adorable picture book full of sibilant sounds and other word play, Snakes on a Train is as fun for parents as it is for kids, and sure to be a read-aloud hit.

The conductor takes the tickets
as the snakes start crawling on.
The tracks are checked,
the whistle blows. It’s time to move along.
Hissssssssssss goes the sound of the train.

Review by Stacey

Snakes on a Train is a children’s picture book about – yes you have guessed it, snakes that are on a train. The snakes are enjoying a good day out on the train and it is full of them.

The book is colourful, rhymes, and has repeated sentences that will help new readers. It is certainly entertaining and I know that the characters are snakes but there is no connection with them, they are just a pit of snakes having a day on a train. They lack expressions, etc. Plus the book felt a little short.

Overall, the book is different and interesting. It contains short sentences and is the perfect book for children learning to read, however, it is not really my cup of tea, but I hope that the young readers will love it.
