    Clickety Clack is a great rhyming book for young readers. It is the story of a traveling circus on a train, and the animals and actors are hyper as they drive along the track. All of the illustrations are in solid colors, and the animals are given human characteristics. The book continues to add on each phrase to the next, until the conductor Zach yells for the animals and actors to be quiet. Then, all they can hear is the clickety clack against the track. The facial expressions given by all of the characters show all of the emotion which serve in telling another story that is different from the text. Overall, this is a great story for young readers.

    I picked this up for my son because of his train obsession and it was funny because as soon as he saw the cover, he yells out “Clickety-Clack” and I was like “Wow, can he read that?” (he’s only 2 ½ ). Then I realized he probably has listened to it at daycare, and he said some of the repeating phrases along with me as I was reading the book. Needless to say, it was a huge hit with him. I enjoyed it too. I mean how can you not love a book with talking yaks, quacking ducks and mice who use fireworks! As I said earlier, the text repeats itself so a child can easily follow the pattern. Recommended for ages 3-6, 4 stars.

    Summary: A train gets noisier and more crowded as quacking ducks, dancing acrobats, talking yaks, and packs of elephants board. Good for Toddler and Preschool Story Classes for train theme. It is a cumulative tale with a nice repetitive line at the end "Clickety clack, clickety clack." The text is short and has a nice rhythm to it which sounds like a song when read. Also has many rhymes with ack sound. I like the end in which the engineer yells at all the animals to keep the noise down. The reader can then read the rest of the story in a lower tone as the animals are trying to be quiet so Driver Zach doesn't turn the train around.

    Clickety Clack by Rob and Amy Spence is a story about a train packed full of animal passengers who are “going down the track, clickety clack, clickety clack.” The book’s rhythm and rhyme makes this story a fun read aloud for students. Students will also like looking at the colorful pages. This story is recommended by Barnes and Noble for children ages four to eight; however, I think younger children might even like listening to the story and looking at this colorful picture book.

    September 2016 - train books, the world where nothing needs to make sense because your child only wants to look at trains. Yaks? Acrobats? Flat cars of unrestrained elephants? Bring it on. A nice rhythm for reading aloud, but your logical brain will cry.

    Engaging illustrations accompany the silly text in Clickety, Clack. As more and more animals board the train, the train gets noisier and noisier until the two mischievous culprits learn to tone it down.Used for "No More Noise" Storytime: July, 2011.

    A fun book. We made it into a chant & would yell out the "quack quack quack" & "clickety clack". Then we would chant real quiet when the conductor wanted everyone to quiet down, but then we'd still yell out the "quacks" & "clickety clacks". Will have to add to our collection.

    I wish there had been a bit more substance to this story, as I was really enjoying the "clickety clack" sounds as I read. Told in rhyme, it's a very bouncy, rhythmic read-aloud that I plan to use this week in my preschool story time.

    It rhymes, it repeats, there's animals, there's a train. Nothing to dislike.

    The illustration of bears and animals will keep young kids 4-8 entertained. Rhyming pattern is fun and helps with phonics! Great
