Random House recently introduced a brand new Thomas & Friends home, where you can find all things Thomas (and friends)!
Readers can easily search for their favorite Thomas books, including Hardcover, Paperback, Board Book, E book, Coloring & Activity, Novelty, Step Into Reading, Little Golden Book or Movie / DVD tie-in.
There’s more…..including printables, videos with movie trailers, and a “What’s New” page which showcases the latest titles.
One of those recent titles is Thomas & Friends Easter Engines, a Step into Reading book. This book is is a Step 2 level, meaning “Reading with Help” and focuses on basic vocabulary, short sentences, and simple stories. Any fan of Thomas will love this one.
This story begins as everyone is getting ready for the Easter parade. Thomas is excited because he’ll lead the parade. Out of the blue, Sir Topham Hatt changes everything and gives Thomas a task……..he is to pick up an Easter Egg. Thomas rushes to the farm to get the egg, only to be surprised with what is the largest Easter Egg ever. He must be careful transporting it.
He soon discovers that while he isn’t the first engine in the parade, he is carrying the highlight of the parade, the prized egg. The children are so excited and thankful to Thomas because inside the egg…….are Easter baskets for them!
Just in time for Easter, this book might be something the Easter Bunny could consider for filling up the Easter basket (instead of all that candy). The Easter Bunny loves to bring non-candy items to our house, and I’m quite grateful.
