The Little Engine That Could is a wonderfully uplifting story. “I – think – I – can, I – think – I – can!” huffs the little engine, and this could well be a motto for every active toddler to live by. A large coach filled with toys for the children of the world must be pulled over a big hill so it can reach them. Shiny New Engine and Big Strong Engine say they can’t do
it. The Little Engine decides to give it a try. He believes that all it requires to complete the task is hard work and positive thinking, and as we all know, believing is half the battle won! With a simple and fun storyline and easy to read words, this book has beautiful illustrations and a positive message to impart, both to children and adults.
