when titus took the train on cbeebies!

Hurrah! The BBC's children's channel, CBeebies, just featured our book, When Titus Took the Train!

You can watch the presenter read it here. He did a great job! (Can anyone tell me his name? I'd love to thank him. I wonder if he's on Twitter.) His name is Alex Winters and he introduces himself over on the CBeebies website. A big thanks to Alex, to children's writer and editor Ruth Redford for tweeting me about it, and to Rebecca Earl (aka Barmy Bex) for identifying Alex! You can follow Alex on Twitter at @alexwinterstv.

Direct YouTube link

Extra bonus! All my books come with FREE downloadable activity sheets on my website, and you can download your own When Titus Took the Train board game to play with your whole family! Or you can download a blank board game template to create your own Titus railways adventure, making up its own highlights and perils. Click here for the Titus web page.

You can also see a cardboard-and-sticks trailer that the writer, Anne Cottringer, and I made to go along with book! Click here to watch the animation and learn about how we made it. We hope you enjoy the book!

he did a great job with it. I did some investigating and think his name is Alex Winters - this is his Presenter page on the CBeebies website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/presenters/watch/presenters-alex/
I think that's him!

Sorry, I don't know why it put me as anonymous. But it's me, Becky :D
