THE TRAIN THEY CALL THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tom Chapin

Children Ages 4-6 • 10 min. • Unabridged • © 2004

This book/CD combination is a Baby Boomer’s delight, and a teacher’s dream. To start, Tom Chapin reads the song lyrics slowly enough for young listeners to follow along with the words while looking at Michael McCurdy’s simple woodcut illustrations. Children get a view of a vintage America that, for the most part, has disappeared, wonderful train noises and other sound effects, and a map that shows where the historic train traveled. Once children (and adults) have enjoyed the poetry, Tom Chapin sings the song through, adding music to the imagery of “that magic carpet made of steel.” W.L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2005 Spoken Word Grammy Winner © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
