What our experts think
Thomas and Friends magazine provides great entertainment for children, as it
includes a variety of different activities and stories all based around their favourite
characters. The word tracing activities, number counting and dot to dots all help
children develop their fine motor skills and pencil control, as well as enabling them
to practice their reading, writing and spelling. The stories and colouring pages allow
children to explore imaginative play and, as they talk about what is happening in the
pictures they colour, they can build their vocabulary.
Younger children will need adult assistance to complete some of the activities in the
magazine, as they will need to be able to read to understand the instructions.
However, the magazine does include simple images to help children who are learning to read understand how to complete different tasks. Each issue of the
magazine comes with a lovely sticker sheet and fun train toy, which are both
popular with children of all ages.
