READING WITH MY FOUR YEAR OLD | March


At the very end March, Alexander acquired three new books for his ever growing book collection. 

We do own the original Thomas the Tank Engine book series, however Alexander also really enjoys the modern adaptation - Thomas & Friends: Engine Adventures. The stories themselves draw inspiration from the original series, however the books focus on a specific character from the Island of Sodor. There are some additional books to the series, including seasonal offerings, but the books that focus on the one principal character seem to be most popular, and also what we're currently collecting.

Alexander has three new additions to his Thomas & Friends collection, which now totals at ten books. As pictured above, the new titles are Cranky, Diesel and Toby. The new books have been happily welcomed, with all three of them having been read already.

Related to this post, but not of the book haul itself, I was thinking about how I'm often sharing about Alexander's book collection but have never actually shown it... So here it is...


Side note: I was on an impromptu hiatus during the month of February, however I did share Alexander's picture book haul in the form of a tweet which you can see here.

  1. Those are perfect shelves for a kids book collection! My son is also a Thomas fan, but we’ve mostly borrowed from the library so far. He currently is enjoying an Easter Thomas book actually.

    And that February haul was such a great deal!

    1. Thomas tends to be a hit with a lot of kids; love that you're enjoying a seasonal read with your son.

      Thanks! I'm hoping these shelves will grow with him also.

  2. Cool shelves! When I was a nanny, I had to read so many Thomas & Friends books. And I had to watch the show. And play with the toys. Basically, the kid was obsessed, and I got enough Thomas to last me a lifetime.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. My son loves Thomas! We'll have to find this series. I'm impressed at how organized Alexander's bookshelves are. Ours are a mess because I keep buying books and have nowhere to put them, so they get stacked on top! :)

    1. Well, when he starts pulling books out (so daily) they definitely don't look like this. Haha! There is a lot of space here, thankfully!

  4. Awww, Thomas! Just seeing these books brings back so many good memories because my son was obsessed with Thomas when he was younger. I used to love read the books and watching the DVDs with him.
