Illustrator Watty Piper, Cristina Ong

Grosset & Dunlap | January 11, 2002 | Trade Paperback

Meet The Little Engine That Could is rated 4 out of 5 by 2.
A brand-new series for brand-new readers!

Introducing a new series for brand-new readers! Each slipcase includes two 16-page paperback books, both on an adorable character who will keep appearing in future First Friends titles. These books are not phonics-based, but have only about a sentence per page, and--most importantly--deliver short, funny stories that really make reading fun. Far simpler than Level 1 All Aboard Reading books, far simpler even than Picture Readers, this new series is perfect for very young children who are ready to try their reading wings.

Everyone loves the Little Engine That Could! Kids will adore learning to read with the cheerful and determined Little Blue Engine, a classic character with the perfect message for emergent readers. I think I can, I think I can! Two simple adventures come in the slipcase.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power of Positive Thinking We read this book to our children, more than 30 years ago. It helps to create positive thinkers, and, the magic of believing that one can! To this day, we still talk about this book. My grandchildren treasure it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much of the original story is missing This story is a classic, but the editors of this board book chopped out way too much of it. The story doesn't flow very well. I remember reading this story as a child and loving how the words mimicked the sound of a train chugging along a track. This feeling is lost in the board book version, sadly. I wish I had known the board book was different and would have bought a paper version telling the whole story. The images are still great, and my little guy enjoys the book.... not as much as his paper version of Down by the Station by Will Hillenbrand though!
