Hey Kids!
Are you a well-adjusted, confident youngster?
Are you missing out on irrational fears fed to you by books, TV shows, and movies that are intended to do just the opposite!?
Have your parents or siblings instilled unhealthy fear in experiencing anything new!?
Well, this book is for YOU!

It's another another fear-based book for kids!

Storyline: Thomas isn't afraid of something, but his friend is, so he decides to be afraid, too! Brills! His fears are confirmed, of course, although eventually he

This book is a great book for those younger children! What I really appreciate about this book is that it is targeted for younger audiences, however, it is very descriptive when discussing and describing the emotions and what is going on within Thomas and his friend's lastest adventure. The town had just completed building the big, big bridge, that reached the sky, and mostly everyone was afraid to go up and cross it.

Cute story about Thomas and his train friends who are traveling to a new bridge on through the mountains of Sodor. All the engines, except Thomas, are a little afraid of that bridge because it is so high. Good book to talk about overcoming fears and following through on things.
Little Miss and the Legomeister
Have I mentioned before that Legomeister was a huge Thomas the Train fan? From two until (don't tell him I told you this) nearly six. Huge fan.

This is one of the better Thomas stories. I enjoyed reading it. And, of course, he loved it.
3.5 stars. My son loves Thomas and loves to be read to. This is a fun story that includes familiar Thomas characters and has a simple lesson about overcoming fears/challenges.

Thomas gets stuck on a high bridge and needs to be rescued! Not a toddler book, for ages 3-6.
Very unrealistic, trains don't have feelings.
