Product Description

My First Story Reader Thomas the Train Storybook was created by developmental education experts for children ages 6 months and older. The three storybooks are designed for use in the My First Story Reader console (included). Snap the storybooks into the console, and the reading system is ready to use.

The console uses two play options that teach the first steps to reading, sound identification, matching, shapes, and colors. In the Read to Me Mode, children turn the pages to hear a narrator read the story, and sounds and music make the story come to life. In Activity Mode, children press the three buttons on the console to answer simple questions about colors and shapes.

Comments about Publications INTL My First Story Reader - Thomas the Train:

This product is a great concept but very limited. It would be great to offer more books to buy but it does not. The books are very flimsey and get ripped very easily. Once the two books that come with this reader are destroyed; you might as well throw out the reader because it only works on these two books and you cannot buy another book separately. This product is too expensive for the life of the flimsy books. A two and three year old can rip or bend the books in one reading and then it will not read the story anymore.

Comments about Publications INTL My First Story Reader - Thomas the Train:

I purchased this reader for my grandson to be able to independently enjoy some simple stories about his favorite characters in the beloved, Thomas series. I had inadvertently purchased the accompanying books at an outlet store and did not realize that the reader was "sold separately". The narrative is clear, and concise in pronunciation. It is fairly easy to load the book into the unit and made for little hands. Each page is identified and the text is recited. At the end of each book, there is a cute song for the child to enjoy. But, the jury is still out whether this purchase was truly my best for the money. There apparently are only 2 books in the Thomas series and it appears that other "reader books" are incompatible with this particular unit and as a cross, these books will not work with any other model. Hopefully, there are other books in the Thomas series, somewhere. Otherwise, this is an expensive, limited use, entertainment option. Therefore, I can only rate my purchase as O.K.

    Looked like a great 3rd birthday gift for my grandson who loves Thomas. Unfortunately, we never heard a complete story without the machines voice saying bye-bye after 2 pages. Concept is great, he loves it, but can't hear a whole story.
