31/01/2022 The Train Ride By June Crebbin

This week's focus text is the Train Ride by June Crebbin

This picture book tells the story of a little girl who goes on a long train journey to visit her grandma by the sea. During the journey she talks about all the things she sees on the way. The story has a clear rhythm echoing the movement and sound of the train. The strongly rhythmic and rhyming text make it a great read aloud and fun to join in with.
