I answered more why questions at the end of the book than received "What's that?" questions during the reading. That's a good sign my sons didn't connect with the storyline and weren't engaged by the illustrations.

We have several other Thomas books that were regulars in our bedtime reading collection. I say "were" because my sons are now 5-years old and 4-years old and both are a little too old for these picture books. Aim to read these with your 2-3-year olds.

I recommend these Thomas books instead: "A Cow on the Line" and "New Tracks for Thomas."

This should be a favorite book. It has nice artwork and features many of our favorite friends: Cranky, Thomas (of course), Gordon, Harold the Helicopter, Toby, Percy, James, troublesome trucks (quantity = 2), Sir Topham Hatt, and Bulstrode (shown in the background)...

... BUT for some reason, it is not that popular with us. We liked "Thomas Goes Fishing" and "Thomas and the School Trip" better.

Three Stars. [C+] Good artwork. Nice Read-aloud. But something is lacking. Perhaps it is that the tone is not as sweet as the other aforementioned books.

I chose this title from the "Thomas and Friends" series, because it is well written. The very young child can understand the simple life lessons in each story. Even still, my children love this series too.

I bought this for our two-year-old for a long plane trip. He loved it and enjoyed the pictures and enjoys having it read to him often.

Great present for a 3 year old boy who loves Thomas & Friends. He enjoys anything with trains, so this was a hit.
