Here is a fun Thomas & Friends coloring sheet you can print out and surprise your Thomas the Tank Engine fan with.  My girls had a blast coloring it, and now the refrigerator is covered with their masterpieces! :-)

My Thoughts:

I haven't met a toddler yet that doesn't like Thomas the Tank Engine. And, whenever I take the girls to the annual "Day Out with Thomas" event, I am amazed at all the girls who are loyal fans of Thomas and the other engines of Sodor.  As for this and other Thomas & Friends DVD's, fans of the show will love watching the episodes that make up these DVD's over and over again. We must have 5 different Thomas & Friends DVD's in the car for the girls to watch on long car rides, as well as have a handful of the girls' favorites at Nana and Papa's house.  

Since receiving the upcoming DVD release last week, my girls and I have already watched it half a dozen times.  And, they keep asking me to print out the above free coloring sheet, to color and include in holiday greeting cards we will be sending out soon.  Each episode talks about teamwork, never giving up and learning from mistakes -- which is great for young toddlers and preschoolers.  If you have a Thomas & Friends fan in your house, you will want to pick up this upcoming DVD release to add to their stocking.
