This delightful childrens book is a reimagining and retelling of the timeless classic The Little Engine That Could, and is the very first book in the Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program. This edition celebrates the 90th Anniversary of the book.

It is just like I remember from childhood, as many of us do; a cute and touching inspirational story. That is exactly the reason Dolly Parton chose it for the first book for children to receive in her program as it helped her through many rough times in her own childhood. It truly is a heartwarming tale and makes a wonderful addition to your child's library.

The illustrations are simply magical, and the big, sturdy, glossy pages are perfect for countless readings. Ideal for reading to your child and just right for young readers to cherish.
