Thomas the Train delights again as he learns how to be responsible. This book includes a charming character that kids like and some good lessons such as the importance of being responsible, the time and place to play pranks, and being considerate of others. It seems slightly long, but my 2 year old son sat still long enough to enjoy the whole book.
