Thomas & Friends: The Lion of Sodor - review and giveaway

 ***congrats to lstanziani!!***

Kiel has learned to recognize the large yellow envelopes that arrive with DVD's in them.
"Is it Thomas?" he asks? He's pretty excited by anything we receive to review, but Thomas and Shaun the Sheep are definitely his favorites.

There was something extra exciting about Thomas & Friends: The Lion of Sodor though. Probably the golden lion on the front. "Rrrrrarww" says Kiel!

I like the message in this one that stresses the importance of listening to others. I need to get my older son to sit down and watch it a few or 20 times!
Thomas & Friends: The Lion Of Sodor will be aavailable On DVD, Digital Download and On Demand
December 7, 2010

DVD SYNOPSIS

Join Thomas as he roars down the tracks with the most special delivery yet, The Lion of Sodor. Thomas’ special delivery is not what he thinks it is - a real lion. When the other trains try to tell him that it’s actually a statue, he is too excited to listen. Join Thomas as he learns the importance of listening to others in this lionhearted collection of tales from the tracks.

My grandson "Thomas" loves all the "Thomas the Train" stories. We read them all the time when he is here at Grammy's. He learned very early how to spell his own name..! Thanks to "Thomas"

My 4.5yr old loves Thomas. I don't know that he's learned anything specific from Thomas other then the names of the trains, and what they each do (he is developmentally delayed so its harder for him). But he loves Trains and Thomas

My twin boys love Thomas, they have learned so much from him, especially about working together and taking turns. Without Thomas I think that I would have two little boys fighting all the time.
