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.
