Product Description

Amazon Review

Age 18 months-4 years.

When Thomas and Bertie decide to have a race the excitement hits fever pitch as the pair seem to be heading for a photo finish. But Thomas soon pulls out all the stops, and before long it is clear who the fastest little engine really is...

A solid, glossy board book--ideal for little hands--filled with bright illustrations and easy-to-follow text. Ideal for reading aloud to tiny tots, who will love the noisy little button on each page that makes the sound of Thomas puffing steam. --Susan Harrison

Format: Board book
This book soon became a favourite with our 20 month old son who is very into books and currently especially Thomas books. He would ask for 'Bertie' since this is about how Bertie the bus challenges Thomas to a race.
Although he enjoyed the sound button, and this did not last many days of rough toddler attention, there is plenty of opportunity in the text for making your own noises.

What I was looking for my 2-year old grandson. Sturdy and colourful, lovely story, with the added sound of a ''train on a track''.

I have read it so often to my 22 month old son that I know the words. Need I say more? At first he was attracted to the sound button, now he points out all the things in the background pictures, which has really improved his vocabulary. Robust board book, just the right length of text for bedtime. Well worth the pennies.

My 2 1/2 year old son enjoys being read to and loves the train sound made by the book which adds life to the story. Although after reading it several time the sound effect has a lasting effect on the family it is a great way of introducing young children to books, literacy, creativity and reading together as family.

My 19 month old grandson loved this book. The pages were easy to turn with large, colourful pictures. He enjoyed the sound and found the button easy to push, however, I found the sound a bit monotonous!!

The Button wears out after a while- it was given as a gift to someone and they found you couldnt keep batteries in it- plus theres no off switch which would be gr8 around a toddler- and saves on batterys
