This week I am sharing a classic The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper.
Having two boys that are heavily into trains, The Little Engine That Could is naturally a frequent read in our home. I love the story and message it sends to children to believe in yourself and just TRY! The Little Blue Engine had faith in herself and made it up over that big mountain because of her confidence and the effort she put out. While our children may not succeed in every endeavor they attempt in their life, I do hope that they will not be afraid to try. I consider trying something new a success in and of itself and I encourage my boys to not be afraid to try new things. Such a great classic book and a wonderful story that both my boys enjoy!
A day filled with train activities and crafts in not uncommon in our house :) The boys love anything train-related so it’s fun to get them involved and excited. After letting the boys play with trains for awhile….
