How to have a little guy under 2 to stay interested while reading a book? Mr.R loves trains and plays with the train set everyday. I had this idea of reading this Thomas book while he played and add things to make the story alive. It worked more than I expected because he really loves the book now!
We did it again when my daughter came home from pre-school and it was even more fun for everyone. She added a bus, like in the story and something who looks like a crane to fix the broken track. They did it over and over even when I wasn’t reading anymore and was preparing snacks.
