Thomas & Friends Find That Freight! Review (Publications International)

What It Is

Thomas & Friends Find That Freight! is a lift-a-flap board book with sound. Thomas, Billy, and Rosie are waiting to pick up important packages, but they can't find the freight. As they enlist the help of Cranky, readers can also help the train engines find the freight by lifting the many flaps on each page to see what's hiding underneath. Each hidden object corresponds with a sound button on the side of the book. If kids lift a flap and find a cat, they press the "cat" button to hear "meow meow". In the text, there are also pictures of Thomas and Cranky. When kids see either picture, they press the Thomas or Cranky sound button to hear different sound effects.

Is It Fun?

The 10 sound buttons help bring the story of Find That Freight! to life. Children are actively involved in the reading process as they lift the flaps and press the sound buttons. Even if kids can't really read yet, they can pretend to as they play with the book—something that is fun and engaging because it generally makes them feel more grown-up. Thomas fans and kids who like trains will have fun mimicking the different sound effects as they read and play with this book.
