The original, classic motivational tale with stunning new art in a handsome edition.
The Little Engine is a classic fairytale that all children should know. Originally written in the early 20th century, the story is one of perseverance and confidence. You and your child can now read this original children’s classic with this new edition full of colorful illustrations.
The Little Engine follows a little train engine who takes up the task of carrying a large train up a massive hill—a task that larger and more accomplished engines refused to do. The little engine huffs and puffs his way up the hill, struggling to carry his heavy load. However, he is positive and confident the whole way and ends up succeeding in his mission, making it over the crest of the hill and down the other side.
Reading about the results of positivity, and perseverance in this beautiful new edition of The Little Engine will leave your child (and you) feeling confident and thinking “I think I can, I think I can” all day long!
