Thomas & Friends: My First Railway Library: Bertie the Helpful Bus by

The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! Meet Bertie, the red passenger bus who delivers passengers to The Fat Controller's busy railway stations. Read about his jobs, his adventures and his friends! My First Railway Library is a great way to pass on the tradition of Thomas. With bright colourful pages and rhyming text, children aged 2 and up will love meeting classic characters such as Percy, James, Gordon, and Toby down on The Fat Controller's railway. Thomas & friends have been teaching children lessons about life and friendship for over 70 years. Thomas ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, Winnie-the-Pooh and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
