C is for Chugga chugga Choo Choo!

This book is THE book for my 2 year old. No day, actually no hour is completed without at least reading or browsing through this one. I, as a hapless mother who is tired of reading it everyday, wants to throw it out and pretend the bird took it away :P

But I can understand the addiction too. The repetitive chugga chugga choo choo and woohoo sounds makes for real fun. We even do a dance number on chugga chugga! The illustrations are also real cute and visually really appealing. I wish I had a ready picture of the toddler with the book. I will try to click one before the post is up. But we know how moody these young ones are, I will not say surely :)

  1. Thank you stopping by I enjoyed reading your C. I remember a few stories that my day was never compete until we read them in my house when my girls where little. Funny they still remember those and have shared them with the grands. I love you was one of the girls favorites with strange little people.

  2. "The repetitive chugga chugga choo choo and woohoo sounds makes for real fun. We even do a dance number on chugga chugga!"... which toddler would not like that!! :D
    True, some stories, some toys they stick with us for a long long time :)

  3. How cute! Chugga chugga sounds like his generation's "Chaiyya chaiyya"

  4. awesome! my sons fave was about planes. he memorized it and would read it to me. loved that!

    happy c day!

  5. I loved this post. When I saw it I read it with childlike enthusiasm and my arm even when up and pulled down on the choo-choo. Smiling

  6. I know what you mean! There are books and movies in our house which have been read a hundred million times!!

    My son loved this!

  8. I can so identify with that exasperation (in my case with reading umpteen times to grandchildren). I think they just love the sounds as much as anything. Have you see the Hairy Maclary books from New Zealand -great books with lots of rhyming words and sounds.

  9. Oh I truly sympathize about reading the same book over and over and over again .. :).. gave me an extra boost to teach them to read on their own as early as possible ;)


Key down what you feel , good or bad :) I love reading it
