Summary:
In the modern fantasy book Thomas Broke His Promise by Random House, a creative story line and cute pictures to teach a very important character lesson. In this book Thomas the train makes a promise, but becomes distracted and does not keep it.
Personal Reaction:
This book is adorable, but I must admit the first time I seen its illustrations I found the faces on the trains to be a bit creepy. Still, I was impressed with the author’s ability to share a character building lesson on such a level that even very young children can understand.
Extensions:
1. A teacher could use this book to illustrate the importance of telling the truth and keeping our promises. After reading this book a teacher could ask students to share why they agree or disagree with Thomas’s actions in this story. This discussion can be directed to help students see the importance of being honest.

2. This book could be used to teach cause and effect or if then statements. By using the
portion of story where Thomas’s mistakes put people in harm’s way, a teacher could
teach students that their choices have positive or negative consequences.
