How Choo Choo Cherry Became an Engineer 

Ever since he was small, Choo Choo Cherry loved trains. More than anything else, he wanted to be an engineer on Funny Face Express. (When he grew up, that is.) But Cherry knew that just wanting something doesn’t make it happen. You have to work very hard to become a good engineer. (Or a good anything!)

So he asked Engineer Arnold to teach him all about trains. Engineer Arnold said, “I’d be happy to teach you. But you must promise to do your homework every day.” And, as you can see, Cherry kept his promise. He learned all about trains and tracks and signals and everything.

Engineer Arnold also taught Cherry to be a careful driver. They practiced uphill and downhill and all around the Land of Funny Face.

Then, at last, Engineer Arnold smiled and said, “I think you’re ready to take over the Funny Face Express. Congratulation!” He gave Choo Choo Cherry his engineer’s hat. And it fit just right!

Then Loudmouth Lime yelled, “All aboard!” And everyone went for a ride. Be sure to wave next time you see the Express go by. And Engineer Choo Choo Cherry will wave right back.
