There is one page per letter with a photo from the televison show depicting the theme of that letter (not a hand drawn or computer generated illustration or cartoon). For example: A is for all aboard and the photo is of Thomas stopped at a station. The photos are great. Every page has one sentence at the bottom that uses the word in context. I do have a complaint that each letter is only shown in the upper case. Despite much room available on the page, when the word is spelled out the first letter is in tiny font just like the rest of the letters. I would prefer if the presenting letter were a larger font to highlight its' use in the word. I was hoping to use this book as a way to teach the letters to my son and this is why I am critical of these factors.
With that said, any little Thomas the Tank Engine lover will absolutely love this book.
Some of the words are a stretch or strange (T is for tracks but then the photo shows Terence the tractor and the sentence is "Terence tells Thomas about his tracks". Why not use T for Thomas (the one word the children are most familiar with), or else use Terence as he is pictured, or just say that T is for Thomas, AND Terence, AND Tracks?
This book has gotten us through some long car trips and air flights.
With all my little criticisms, I feel Iit's low cost justifies its purchase and replacement when it wears out.
My son likes the pictures. The book itself is very cheaply made and the pictures look like someone took pictures from a Thomas the Train episode with a regular old camera (one with film) and then photocopied them with a cheap color photocopier on to super thin paper and then slapped it together and called it a book. But - because it was only a few dollars, my son likes it, and it says "Poop! Poop!" in it, I have given it three stars.

In today's hi-def world these pictures are blah. The old school images aren't the problem, it looks like it was printed at home on a crummy printer.Published 1 month ago by JoyNoel
