A classic story now in a lap-book format has been slightly abridged and features the famous illustrations from the original edition that will keep toddlers cheering on the little blue engine as she continues chugging along.
I think it’s safe to say that almost everyone loves this classic book with a can-do message for littles and adults! I love that the little engine shows perseverance, even when things are hard, and believing in yourself. It’s such a great example of having a positive attitude, and that we are in charge of our thoughts and choose what we feel. :)
It’s a classic story, and this board book abridged version is perfect for little ones - it tells the same story, just a little more concisely than the original. The colors of the original illustrations are bright and bold in this new format. It’s a great addition to any classic kids literature collection!
