    Wonderful Childhood Classic

    This was bought for my 2-year old granddaughter who, at the moment, has a love of all things train. We remembered this story from both our children's and our own childhoods, but we were delighted to see the original, complete version of the story. The illustrations are wonderful. She loves having this book read to her; and now our granddaughter, too, is repeating the memorable phrase "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can".

    The Little Engine That Could

    A wonderful, wonderful book that has charmed children from all walks of life. There is nothing more important than learning to read....if you can do that, you can do anything, go anywhere, accomplish anything.
    Another joy for generations to come.

    Wonderful Book !

    Wonderful book that is good thru the ages; it has a nice message for young children: if you think you cannot do something, just say: I THINK I CAN …and then I KNOW I CAN !

    One of the best children's books

    I have made it a tradition of buying this book for the children I have known for many years. The Little Engine That Could is a wonderful story but also a teaching tool. It is a 35 year old book with a message that should never be forgotten; that children need to remember to always try and not give up.
    The illustrations are heartwarming and not a rough graphic which is sometimes seen in books published today.
    this is one book every parent should by and read to there three year old and up.

    This was the full-size version, not the tiny book some are complaining about.

    Several reviews complain of receiving a small book. Maybe they reviewed the wrong item or received the wrong item? Anyway, my copy arrived as full size: 7"x11".

    Great classic for children - or anyone!

    This colorful book is a great story that encourages one to think positively. If you have confidence in yourself, you can succeed. This is a valuable lesson for anyone at any age and is presented in a beautifully written and illustrated book.

    Mature Theme

    The power of positive thinking. Don't settle for any other version than this original. And don't overlook the sound of the little engine puffing along, 'I think I can I think I can I think I can,' when reading aloud.
