When I saw the fun story of Baby’s First Train Robbery I knew my kiddies were going to enjoy reading this together with me.
Baby Frank helps his parents look after a zoo, but it’s hard work and his mom and dad dream of a holiday away. Grandma offers to help watch the zoo, but Frank is worried that she won’t cope and doesn’t have the skills required for ape- and tiger-sitting. So when they’re away at the beach Baby Frank comes up with a plan to get back home…with surprising consequences. He climbs aboard a train, mistakenly sets it off and before long it’s steaming towards a bridge under construction.
Your children will delight in the rhyming story and there are fun illustrations with lots of details for them to explore, including Baby Frank’s note to his parents on the beach and Grandma working together with the animals to bravely rescue him.
This baby thief is cute, but be warned after reading this steam-powered adventure you’ll want to check out the other books in this entertaining series: Baby’s First Bank Heist and Baby’s First Jailbreak, also by Jim Whalley and Stephen Collins.
Baby’s First Train Robbery is available for a recommended retail price of R180. It’s recommended for children aged 3 to 6 years.
