Train stories aren't just for little boys. Little girls love them, too. My 2 1/2-year-old granddaughter has had me read these three little stories a dozen times since we brought the book home from the library (her choice) yesterday.
Another great Thomas book. This one contains: Thomas and the Rumors, James and the Trouble with Trees, and Happily Ever After. Happily Ever After is kind of a lame story though.
My son loves Thomas the Tank Engine and normally sits through the entire book. Great book teaching that you shouldn't always believe what you hear.
