With a clickety-clack and a choo-choo-choo, Carmela LaVigna Coyle’s Wild Zoo Train chugs through desert, jungle, savanna, frozen tundra, and beyond while a sprightly conductor clamors over cars, calling out amusing rhymes to introduce an entertaining variety of plants, mammals, insects, and reptiles in their native habitats. Wide-eyed passengers, brought to life by Steve Gray’s humorous cartoon-style characterizations, stare raptly at equally wide-eyed animals as the train winds along the tracks through diverging landscapes for one unforgettable ride.
