Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Let's get one thing straight right off the bat. Children love books with flaps. They can't get enough of them. And this book has many, many flaps--over 60, in fact. Something else: children are crazy about Thomas the tank engine. Translation? Very young readers will happily spend a lot of time lifting and learning with this big, bright, colorful board book. Early learning concepts are reinforced on each page, as readers are encouraged to explore their knowledge of colors, numbers, sizes, everyday objects, and the alphabet. Thomas the tank engine travels through the pages, starting out early in the morning in the train shed and moving through the stations, dropping off parcels and passengers, and finally ending up in the freight yard with car after car full of important objects to be delivered, such as milk, doors, a piano, a kangaroo, and xylophones. Children should be allowed to roam freely over the pages of this book, making up their own stories related to the pictures they discover under the flaps. (Ages 2 and older) --Emilie Coulter

From the Inside Flap

Illustrated in full color. Jam-packed with loads of flaps to "lift, look, and learn" from, this book will have young children searching for engines painted blue, green, or red, counting from 1 to 10, and learning the alphabet.

My 3-year-old son loves this book. Each set of pages focuses on a different concept like counting, colors, or the alphabet. One page has 10 flaps numbered 1-10, and under each flap are a certain number of items to count. Another page has the entire alphabet! The flaps aren't all the same size either, which is more fun for the kids. I recommend this book for children 6 and under.

Both my boys (ages 5 and 2) are big Thomas fans, and this book is probably their favorite Thomas book. There is truly a lot to see and do here! I think their favorite page is the one with a lot of sheds to open and see all the favorites---James, Percy---all of the gang! Another page has boxes filled with different numbers of things---toys, hats, bananas, etc. One page even features a man that looks a little bit like Schemer from the Shining Time Station series, although I don't think he really is, but that didn't stop that from being the favorite flap in the book for my older son! Each page is filled with interesting details. Certainly worth every penny.

Pages with only one flap on them? Why waste the space? This book has flaps upon flaps upon flaps, so many that sometimes my two-year-old will reach for another one I've missed as I'm starting to turn the page. The last page alone is several minutes worth of flap-flipping fun. Even if your child isn't a huge Thomas fan, this is a fun book with lots of hidden things to find on each page. What's underneath will help teach colors and numbers and letters. And if they like Thomas, than they'll love this book. There's a logical progression from page to page if no actual story, but the fun in this one isn't reading out loud, it's finding flaps, lifting flaps, trying to remember what's under flaps. Highly recommended.

This is a flap book, 60 of them to be exact.
The popular Thomas the Tank Engine format is used to introduce children to the alphabet and their numbers. Each covers a flap that children can uncover and find a corresponding example. Other pages host more traditional flap objects (items that fit with the story), but the learning flaps have helped...associate letters with appropriate objects and recognize number representation with appropriate groupings.
The book is sturdy, which can't be said for all flap books. The typical Thomas story is here, as well as the colorful art that delights young readers.
This book is a winner. Watch them learn while they enjoy.

My child received this when he was a year old and now he is three and he is still interested and learning. This pop up book is fun for any Thomas the train fan.

This is a great book for all Thomas the Tank Engine Lovers. My 2 year old is crazy about it. There are many flaps to lift and identify items. The items under the flaps are not all related to various Thomas engines, but are generally educational. For example, the book has freight cars labled with the alphabet. You lift the flap on the freight car to see an item that starts with the corresponding letter.

This is a very nice book, and my son absolutely loves the first page which shows the roundhouse and each character engine behind a flap. However, we have one complaint: there isn't enough Thomas! Some of the pages seem very disconnected from the Thomas theme. For example: the page showing the inside of Sir Topham Hat's house. I think we own just about every Thomas video on the market and I cannot recall ever seeing Sir Hat's house. My son does not make the connection, and tends to lose interest in the book about halfway through. However, he can spend 1/2 hour on the first page alone, so I guess that makes up for it.

...so much that he takes it to bed with him many nights. There are so many different things to look at: letters, numbers, surprises. Each two-page spread is a different scene. We've had it for 5 or 6 months now and he's not tired of it yet!
We gave the book as a gift to a three-year old, and he probably spent more time with the book than any one of the myriad electronic gadgets and oversized presents he got.
This book is a "must-read" for any Thomas fan.
