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.
