I know that Thanksgiving hasn't even gone by yet, and I am definitely not one of those people who have their holiday shopping done in October, but.... I can't help but recommend a wonderful book for kids in the age range of 4-7. The book is Train by Elisha Cooper. It is not your regular choo-choo train book because it is for a slightly older audience (though I think little kids would enjoy it as well). The story follows several different types of trains--commuter, bullet train, freight, overnighter--as they wend their way through cities, forests, and mountains. The illustrations are perfect, and the book has an amazing soothing quality that is ideal for bedtime reading. The Library has a copy so I recommend taking a look.
