Reviews - What do customers think about The Little Engine That Could (Original Classic Edition)?

I can-I can!!  Mar 29, 2007
This is a very good book and it teaches a very good life lesson. It is a book that can be enjoyed by any type of public. I would especially read this book to a person who is giving up. It will be a very good idea to read this to an infant or a child when they are learning new stuff. This will enourage them to do may more things in life. When I first read this book it taught me that if I propose myself a challenge and I give some of my time and that I never give up I can do anything in life that I want to accomplish.
Not only a children's book but a lesson on life  Mar 16, 2007
I love this book. It's a great sales tool and lesson on life. It teaches us that if we think we can no matter the challenge we can.
Still a classic!  Jan 26, 2007
The story was reworded, but it is still a great story and a great teaching lesson. The illustrations in this book are gorgeous.
Great for Children, Fantastic for Adults  Jan 24, 2007
My dad was dying and I bought several books to take to him at the hospital. This was one of them. When I flew down to see him, the word was that he still had hope. Within thirty minutes of my arrival, we found it not to be true. I still read him this book, just as he used to read it to me. It was a joke for us during his last days. Even when he had break through pain and I wasn't allowed to give him more medicine, we'd read this and he'd squeeze my hand while he tried to get through just a little more time. Sometimes he told me the story to keep his mind focussed.

Before he died he told me to finish my degree. I told him it would be hard because I have a big family, so much going on-- and he smiled and said, "Let me tell you about a train that couldn't get over a mountain. It had great things on it, toys for the good boys and girls, milk for their dinners. It was hard to get this train loaded with good things over the mountain but there was one little engine. . ." Three months later I am in college and this little engine goes through my mind a lot. The story is one of my children's favorites and they don't know why I can't read it without crying!

This book appeals to everyone for different reasons, but the results are the same. An iron will allows us to overcome any obstacle!
The Little Engine Taht Could  Jan 18, 2007
The story itself is great. My husband loved the book when he was a child and so we wanted to introduce the book to our son; he too loved it. My only complaint is that the book is just a little pricy for the mini version.
