Welcome to the Thinking Train, a unique series of picture books which focus on the development of children’s thinking skills through the use of stories.
When children are involved in thinking and also in talking about their thinking with others, they reach higher levels of achievement in the future as well as developing superior thinking skills. The Thinking Train stories will encourage a love of reading and promote thoughtful interaction with books while developing children’s thinking skills. The activities, in carefully graded English, will automatically develop and practice their language skills, too.
