Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends are thrilled that children on a school trip have come for a visit! But Thomas has work to do. Will the little engine make it back in time to take the children home? Based on the popular characters in The Railway Series by the Rev. W. Awdry, readers will root for Thomas as he puffs away and saves the day in Thomas and the School Trip.
Tie-in Activity: Make a simple train by removing the lids from two shoeboxes. Make a hole in the narrow side of each box, then string and knot or tape a short length of yarn though the holes to link the boxes together. String and knot another length of yarn in one of the boxes to pull it along. Toot! Toot!
