I took my son to a library program today called Toddler Time. It’s a 30 minute programs for kids aged 2 & 3 where a leader reads stories to the kids, sings songs, does puppet shows and leads the children through a craft. Today’s theme was trains. Although many of the children in the class don’t have a large vocabulary yet, they all knew how to shout “Choo Choo!” along with the train stories & songs. Both the boys and the girls were very interested in the trains and I suspect that there were quite a few Thomas & Friends fans in there today.
