Driver Dan's Story Train: And They're Off! by Rebecca Elgar


Driver Dan's Story Train: And They're Off! by Rebecca Elgar

This eye-catching Driver Dan storybook features And They're Off! , one of the picture books read in the television series. All the colourful boats line up for a race across the sea, but beneath the waves, a speeding submarine also has the finish line in its sights. Who will get there first and win the race? Here, picture books from the TV series are brought to life by Driver Dan and the Story Train characters. Beautiful artwork and original stories will engage young children and emerging readers. They are encouraged to look at the pictures and discuss the action, before re-enacting elements from the story in an entirely natural, entertaining way that will broaden their book experience.
