The Little Engine That Could
Written by Watty Piper and illustrated by George and Doris Hauman, Penguin Young Readers Group (Ages 3-5)
When a train breaks down on its way to deliver toys to little children, a little blue train comes along to save the day. Although the blue train is small and has never been over the mountain before, he repeats the phrase, “I think I can” over and over until all the toys are brought to the children of the village. $8, indigo.ca
