The wind up train book is one of our most popular games.
This superb book contains a wind up train, three short stories and three pages with train tracks created on them. Just wind the train, slot it into the track and watch it move around the book. On the last map, there are even points that can be changed to alter the direction of the train. What is lovely about this book is that the illustrations are crisp and interesting – has the train passed the swimming pool yet? A great way of watching what is going on and finding new words together.
Very immediate – children understand what to do straight away and will want to play again and again.
- The train moves around the book
