A brand-new series for brand-new readers!
Introducing a new series for brand-new readers! Each slipcase includes two 16-page paperback books, both on an adorable character who will keep appearing in future First Friends titles. These books are not phonics-based, but have only about a sentence per page, and--most importantly--deliver short, funny stories that really make reading fun. Far simpler than Level 1 All Aboard Reading books, far simpler even than Picture Readers, this new series is perfect for very young children who are ready to try their reading wings.
Everyone loves the Little Engine That Could! Kids will adore learning to read with the cheerful and determined Little Blue Engine, a classic character with the perfect message for emergent readers. I think I can, I think I can! Two simple adventures come in the slipcase.

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))About the Author:
