This is the greatest little book. It applies to all ages, but especially an older child that has run into bumpy roads in their lives. I purchased it for my 23 year old daughter who is in nursing school for the second time. she gets so discouraged and I felt that this book would pick her up when she was down and felt like giving up. I wanted her to know how I felt about her and how much Confidence I had in her. I know she can do it! .....She loved the book!
I had read the book, The Little Engine That Could, for the last 13 years to my students (Watty Piper's version). When I saw this book at a local store, I knew I had to buy it. It is inspirational, fun, and can be enjoyed by varying age groups because of it's message. (Reminds me of Dr. Suess' Oh the places you will go) Overstock had a great price on it too. Delivery came just in time to read it for the first week of kindergarten, using a train theme to begin the year.
