- Cute book. This is our second one. The first one was so well loved my son kept saying "clean up!" (it had worn down by the 3rd child), so I finally bought a new one!
- Great Book!
- Great board book to go along with the Thomas the train power wheels and track!
- Good book
- A simple book for babies and young toddlers. This is how it goes: "Every day Thomas and his coaches puffed along, not too fast...not too slow.. and stopped at every station.
- As expected
- My 2 year old loves Thomas the Tank Engine and enjoyed this story. It was long enough to hold his attention.
- I didn't read the description of this book well enough and I thought it was the unabridged longer version. This is actually a smaller board book. That didn't matter much to my son, who was 18 months old when I purchased this. He'll listen to any Thomas story with rapt attention, and being a board book meant he couldn't damage as easily as a paper book. I also bought Go Train Go, and both have become a favorite of his. He often brings us one of the books to read to him. My only complaint is that because it is very small, it tends to get lost among his larger board books.
- My son loves loves this book! Happy to get him a new copy of the book.
- Cute book. I was expecting a more "See Spot Go!" kind of easy reader though so was disappointed that way, but not in the book at all. Our grandson will love it!
- I love these Dr. Seuss brand Thomas books, and (more importantly) so does my two-year old. He's a Thomas fan through and through. Unlike the Golden Books (which are nice enough), this book and its cousin, GO TRAIN GO tap into writing conventions that will train your young reader to recognize patterns. It's not a Pulitzer, to be sure, but its use of parallel structure and appropriate repetition elevates your frequent reading of Thomas from nice stories that are grounded with a moral center to something a bit more. Be aware, however, that this Board Book lacks the meat of the more traditional children's book. As a result, a bit of the narrative is loss. If you have the ability, I'd recommend going with the non-board book. If not, however, your young reader will still delight in reading this and its sturdiness enables more individual reading with less accidents to the pages.
- This will be a fun story to share.
- The story itself is fine, just the book has fallen apart. It's not the sturdiest board book I have ever purchased for my children.
- This was written in an easier to read format for beginning readers. Children will enjoy this story of Thomas who decides not to stop at any of his stops.
