9780760703748: The little engine that could

"I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!" For over seventy years, children have loved Watty Piper's classic story about the little blue railroad engine whose persistence saves the day. At last The Little Engine That Could is available again-now with colorful new illustrations. This edition includes every word of Piper's original story. Every spread is splashed with bright, bold pictures by award-winning artist Phil Smouse. The perfect self-esteem builder, The Little Engine That Could will be a favorite with children ages two to seven-and the nostalgic parents and teachers who love to read with them.

Product Description:

Designed especially for toddlers, this large die-cut board book features an intriguing locomotive shape, bright, cheery illustrations, and a simple retelling of the original story just right for reading aloud.

Review:

The unknowing progenitor of a whole generation of self-help books, Wally Piper's The Little Engine That Could is one of the greatest tales of motivation and the power of positive thinking ever told. In this well-loved classic, a little train carrying oodles of toys to all of the good boys and girls is confronted with a towering, seemingly impassable mountain. As nicely as they ask, the toys cannot convince the Shiny New Engine or the Big Strong Engine--far too impressed with themselves--to say anything but "I can not. I can not." It is left up to the Little Blue Engine to overcome insurmountable odds and pull the train to the other side. The Little Engine That Could is an entertaining and inspirational favorite, and the Little Blue Engine's rallying mantra "I think I can--I think I can" will resonate for a lifetime in the head of every child who hears it. (Ages 4 to 8))
