A board book with padded cover starring Thomas the Tank Engine. Train-loving boys and girls ages 2-5 will thrill to the retellings of the stories Thomas and the Great Discovery, Hero for a Day, and Misty Island Rescue. The heavy board pages hold up to hours of repeated reading as Thomas and his engine friends chuff through exciting adventures on—and even off—the Island of Sodor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful can't recommend enough Great stories, I wish all board books were like this one. Large enough that the parent can hold with ease as well as a nice padded cover. My son in only 7 months old but wil sit still on my lap if I read him Thomas, he coos and laughs and hits the pages (which hold up nicely to his drool & rough way of showing his love) any other book and he will squirm out of my lap off to play with a toy or two. Hopefully they make more Thomas books like this one so I can share in more magic reading moments with him.
