I love being a Chuggington Conductor!  My boys love the show and have enjoyed the different Chuggington reviews we’ve had the opportunity to participate in.  Most recently, we had the opportunity to review some fun Chuggington books from Scholastic.  The Chuggington books included: The Chugger Championship, All Around Chuggington, Welcome to Chuggington, Let’s Ride the Rails!, and Wilson and the Ice Cream Fair.  These books are perfect for bedtime stories, car trips, and beginner reading and will hit shelves this month!

ABOUT CHUGGINGTON

All aboard!  Chuggington is the popular new preschool television series that follows the humorous adventures of three ‘trainees’ – Koko, Brewster, and Wilson – as they learn to ‘ride the rails’ of life.  While action and adventure drive the stories, this traintastic show also focuses on strengthening kids’ social-emotional skills, bringing to life relevant lessons such as being a good friend, respecting others and the importance of telling the truth.  Chuggington airs daily on Playhouse Disney, Disney Channel’s learning-focused programming block for preschoolers.  Check your local listings.  Books available in January 2011 include:

THE CHUGGER CHAMPIONSHIP

(SCHOLASTIC / Ages 3 years & up / Approx. Retail Price: $9.99 / Available: January 2011)
It’s time for the big train race!  Will Wilson or Koko be the first chugger to cross the finish line?

ALL AROUND CHUGGINGTON

(SCHOLASTIC / Ages 3 years & up / Approx. Retail Price: $9.99 / Available: January 2011)
Kids will love being part of the traintastic action in this interactive lift-the-flap board book.

LET’S RIDE THE RAILS!

(SCHOLASTIC / Ages 3 years & up / Approx. Retail Price: $6.99 / Available: January 2011)
Readers can help the chuggers earn their train skills badges – and collect their own sticker badges along the way!  Sticker book.

WILSON AND THE ICE CREAM FAIR

(SCHOLASTIC / Ages 3 years & up / Approx. Retail Price: $3.99 / Available: January 2011)
It’s up to Wilson to deliver the ice cream.  Will he make it to the fair on time?

MY THOUGHTS

I loved reviewing these Chuggington books and my boys really enjoyed reading them and interacting with the lift-the-flaps tabs and stickers!  A big thanks to Chuggington and Scholastic for this opportunity!
