The unknowing progenitor of a whole generation of self-help books, Wally Piper's The Little Engine That Could is one of the greatest tales of motivation and the power of positive thinking ever told. In this well-loved classic, a little train carrying oodles of toys to all of the good boys and girls is confronted with a towering, seemingly impassable mountain. As nicely as they ask, the toys cannot convince the Shiny New Engine or the Big Strong Engine—far too impressed with themselves—to say anything but "I can not. I can not." It is left up to the Little Blue Engine to overcome insurmountable odds and pull the train to the other side. The Little Engine That Could is an entertaining and inspirational favorite, and the Little Blue Engine's rallying mantra "I think I can—I think I can" will resonate for a lifetime in the head of every child who hears it.

  Never Give Up
Anna (age 7) of Oregon, 6/10/2016
I like the Little Engine that Could because when the train stopped and couldn't keep going, all of the toys didn't give up until they found the blue train to help. Before they found the Little Blue train, the clown kept saying after each train left without helping, "But this isn't the only one in the world! Look there is another one coming." I liked this part because the toys never gave up. Try reading the whole thing and see if there are more things that do not give up in this story!
