Little Engine That Could

by

Little Engine That Could Cover

 

Staff Pick

When Shiny New Engine, Big Strong Engine, and Rusty Old Engine refuse to pull the toys and good food over the mountain, it's left up to Little Blue Engine to save the day. And save it she does! The Little Engine That Could is a classic tale of determination and willpower overcoming perception. This story should be shared with all young children who have ever thought that they couldn't achieve something.
