My Book Tie-Ins of the Week:
The train and shark are tested in contests that take one or both of them out of their element. There is a swim in the ocean, a train car pull, roasting marshmallow, shooting baskets, running a lemonade stand and about nine more activities. Some are easy wins for the shark or the train and some challenges are tough for both of them.
Finally the book ends with the boys being called to lunch and the toys being tossed back into the toy box.
JDaniel loved the conversation bubbles that appeared on some of the pages. At first I thought they represented the words the boys are saying to each other while they are playing. At the end of the story the shark and train are still talking in the toy box about who will eventually beat who.
What did we do?
JDaniel had his friends over for playgroup.
