Reviews - What do customers think about The Little Engine That Could?

Awesome for babies and toddlers  Jun 5, 2008
I bought this book when my daughter was not even 18 mos. old. It was the first book I could get her to sit through in a long time - and she absolutely loved it. It seemed to break the barrier in getting her to sit through a story. It is perfect toddler version - it gets the message and the story across and is just right for a toddler's short attention span. Still a favorite!
Daughter likes it !  Apr 7, 2007
My husband loves reading this classic to our daughter and she loves reading along! A classic.
The Little Engine That Could  Mar 12, 2007
This is a book I loved as a child and my 21 month grandson enjoys it as much as I do.
great abridged version for the littlest readers  May 21, 2006
my twin toddlers love this book - the train-shaped board book is interesting for them to explore with their little hands, and the story just long enough to hold thier attention
A Perfect Version for Little Ones  Dec 9, 2005
This little board book is indeed a very abridged version of the classic that you may remember from childhood. However, the length is perfect for the shorter attention spans of children aged 6 months through 24 months (the usual target audience for board book publishers).

The colors are bright and cheerful, the shape is fun for little hands to hold, and the prose is eagerly anticipated time after time -- especially with sound effects from the reader. :) And although it is abridged, the "I think I can!" message of the original story still comes through loud and clear.

For older children or those with longer attention spans, buy the full-length version. But for rollicking fun with your baby or toddler, I recommend this version.
