The Little Engine That Could

Title:  The Little Engine That Could
Author:   Watty Piper
Recommended for: Preschool and up
Call Number/Link:   E PIPER,W.

Synopsis:   The Little Engine That Could is an illustrated children’s book that was first published in the United States in 1930 by Platt & Munk. The story is used to teach children the value of optimism and hard work.

Comments:   This has been one of my favorite children’s stories.  “I think I can, I think I can” a phrase that has instilled hard work and perseverance in young children.

I love this book because of the sense of accomplishment this little engine has after he has made it over the mountain.
