I appreciate Thomas the Tank Engine for being engaging to kids. The simple faces with clear expressions make this an excellent choice for kids with Autism. In my professional opinion this is a good book to recommend to kids. The simple story is easily understood as well. The ebook, however, is terrible. Not for the content but because it is unnecessarily difficult to read. The text is not large enough and you can’t make the images any larger in the e-format. I would not recommend this e-book, as is, to any parents or students. I would recommend the book version of this to any kids to likes trains/tank engines. ( )
