Thomas and Friends: Story Reader Electronic Reader and 8-Book Library is a new electronic reading system from the makers of Story Reader 2.0. The Reader is an electronic pad that reads out loud each of eight Thomas and Friends storybooks. The reading pad is compatible only with the storybooks included in the set.
To begin, children select one of the eight storybook buttons on the Reader, which is made of sturdy hard plastic. Next, they find the storybook they have selected, open to the first page of the story, and press a “Read Story” button on the pad to activate the narrator’s voice.
Each time they turn a page, children again press a “Read Story” button to continue hearing the story. Kids know which “Read Story” button to press by matching those on the pad with those in the storybook.
