After noticing that I have never done a train specific story time (well, during the life of my blog, anyway), I decided it was about time! I found some great train books out there (which are listed in our catalog as under the subject "railroads trains juvenile fiction", NOT "trains juvenile fiction" as I had assumed. After searching for "trains juvenile fiction" and finding only about 12 books, I figured there was a problem).
Anyway, here are the books that I chose for today's story time!
The Goodnight Train by June Sobel
Dinosaur Train by John Steven Gurney
Clickety-Clack by Rob and Amy Spence
And, as always, it's FMRNS!!! WHOOOOOOOT!!!!! A and I were lucky enough to be able to get together a couple times this past week to have Bonus Night of FMRNS! We watched The Pink Panther Strikes Again, from 1976 with Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom and Lesley-Anne Down. We also watched True Grit, from 1969 with John Wayne, Glenn Campbell and Kim Darby (not to mention Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper) - the only western on the list.
This evening, A and I are going to watch a silent film from 1927 called Metropolis. It's been a while since we watched a silent film (the last one was Nosferatu, from 1922 based on the Dracula story), so I am excited!!
