    Looking for books on trains for my 2-yr-old twins, I was pleasantly surprised to find this written by Burton, the author of one of my favorite childhood books, Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel. The same beautiful illustrations and detailed story line as the Steam Shovel, Choo Choo instead talks about a steam engine and his daily woes. A book my 5-yr-old got into as well, we loved this one as a family.

    First sentence: Once upon a time there was a little engine. Her name was CHOO CHOO. She was a beautiful little engine. All black and shiny.

    Premise/plot: Choo Choo was originally published in 1937. The original illustrations by Virginia Lee Burton have been colorized by Lauren Pettapiece. Choo Choo is the story of a little engine who is a bit naughty. What does she do that is naughty? She decides one day that she does NOT want to pull cars anymore--she wants to run free and go where she wants. This doesn't work out well for her!!!

    My thoughts: I haven't decided if Choo Choo is more or less naughty than Thomas the Tank Engine. I do know that I like this one. The text is quite enjoyable. It is a bit text-heavy so this one might be great for train lovers with a longer attention span. (Freight Train is light on text, Choo Choo is NOT.) But the illustrations are what really make this one so delightful.

    My children have enjoyed the books of Virginia Lee Burton nearly as much as I did when a young boy. This particular book is not nearly as well-known as Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel or Katy, but it still has the same appeal as the other books.

    This particular book deals with a train that wants to be a little more than it is -- it wants to go faster and easier -- by itself, without pulling any coaches. It takes off at the first opportunity and is chased by its engineer all the way to a dead end, where the engine comes to realize that it's okay to have a job to do.

    The simplistic, easy story still reads well with children, and the art is just unique enough that it appeals to the average youngster.

    A recommended read.

    Classic story about a train engine named, (what else?) 'Choo-Choo' who is fed up with lugging passengers and freight around and wants to set off on her own to show everyone just how fast and splendid she really is. Of course, chaos ensues (as well as confusion and delay)

    This was Virginia Lee Burton's first book, who wrote it for her son when he was four after they had visited the train station. The artwork is very dated (AND SHOULD NEVER BE UPDTATED!) It is splendid just the way it is, although I wouldn't say no to some color. The text however, is a bit cheesy.

    Virginia Lee Burton, who brought us Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, brings us a cautionary tale about a little engine who runs away from her job of pulling coaches. Instead, she escapes and sets off on a solo spree across the country, stopping only when she loses her tender and runs out of fuel and water on an abandoned track. Her owners retrieve her from her exhausted solitude, and she decides that since running away "isn't much fun," she will return to her job.

    The story is exceptionally well written, with a dramatic pacing that builds to an exciting climax as Choo Choo tears across the countryside. Highly auditory pre-readers will especially enjoy the repetition and sound effects that punctuate the story, giving it a rhythm and sense of excitement. Those who are more visually oriented may be less attracted to it: it is illustrated in old-fashioned black-and-white charcoal, and while some readers may be unimpressed by the lack of "flash" in the artwork, others may be troubled by Choo-Choo's darkly sinister resting place in the woods. Still, even without color, the pictures are full of movement and life. The story is action-packed, and carries the simple message that those who try to escape their responsibilities may find that their "freedom" isn't all they imagined it to be.

    We found a Netflix treat: we just watched Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Stories, which features animated adaptations of children's storybooks with celebrity narrators. This story was narrated by Bonnie Raitt and we just loved the format. It reminded us of the Tumblebooks animations that we occasionally watch online. As the book is narrated, we followed along with a slightly animated version of the illustrations. It was very entertaining and we really enjoyed watching all of the episodes on the DVD.

    This is a fun story of a wayward engine who gets into and out of trouble. The story has an old fashioned feel, which makes sense considering that it was first published in 1937. Still, it has an entertaining quality that has stood the test of time.

    Yet another superior picture/story book by the American master Virginia Lee Burton - even the drawing of her son on the dedication page is lovely. A little engine that longs to break free and explore. When the chance arrives things get a little out of control. Luckily Choo Choo has lots of friends and in the end comes to appreciate things just as they've always been. The black and white art work is evocative and illustrate the action perfectly. I'd place this one alongside the best of Burton's books like Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and The Little House.

    Read a Kindle version through the library READS system. Almost great throughout for a Kindle translation of a picture book except for one page. I'm glad we have a physical copy.

    Read physical copy for MP 1st enrichment.

    This was my son's absolutely favorite book when he was around three years old. A true classic!

    Choo

    I have read at least two books from Virginia Lee Burton when I was younger and they were “The Little House” and “Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel” and I had enjoyed both books immensely! So, I then picked up another book by Virginia Lee Burton called “Choo Choo” which was quite a unique read and is one that I would definitely recommend for children!

    The story is about a beautiful little locomotive named Choo Choo who would pull trains from the city to the country and back again every day. She was always accompanied by three workers who were named Jim the Engineer, Oley the Fireman and Archibald the Conductor who would all come together to take care of Choo Choo. One day however, Choo Choo was getting tired of pulling trains in between the cities and the country and she decided to run away from the station and show everyone in town how beautiful she really is!

    What sort of adventures will Choo Choo get herself into?

    Read this book to find out!

    Wow! I never would have thought that I would enjoy this book so much! Just like Virginia Lee Burton’s other works, this book has a classic and old fashioned feel as we get to see how trains look like during the 1930s. I also loved the fact that this story has a different twist to the usual children’s story about trains, as it details the story about a young train running away from its owners, which I rarely read about in previous books about trains. Virginia Lee Burton does a great job at making this book both cute and exciting at the same time as I loved the fact that Choo Choo’s owners really do care about what happened to Choo Choo when she goes missing as it brings in a heartwarming element to the story. I was also sitting on the edge of my seat as I wondered if Choo Choo was ever going to make it back home safely and I liked the way that Virginia Lee Burton detailed the dangers of running away from home as Choo Choo gets into all kinds of danger on her travels and it would help teach kids about the dangers of running away from home by themselves. Virginia Lee Burton’s artwork is quite unique in this book as most of the images are in black and white colorings, giving this book an old fashioned and bold feel and I also enjoyed seeing the images of Choo Choo herself as she is drawn as a cute looking locomotive, which strongly reminds me of the image from “The Little Engine that Could!”

    Choo

    The only real issue with this book is that there is one image in this book where Choo Choo ends up going through a scary looking forest that might frighten smaller children. The trees are drawn in a much eerier manner compared to the rest of the images and parents might want to go through the images in this scene first to see if their children can handle such scary imagery.

    Overall, “Choo Choo” is a truly cute book that children who enjoy reading about trains will definitely get a kick out of! I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since the image of the scary forest might scare some smaller children.
