Book recommendation:  The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper

Why: The story of The Little Engine That Could inspires children to not say I can’t but to keep saying I Think I Can. When children are able to accomplish a task that they thought they couldn’t, it makes them feel great. As long as you feel you can do it you will do it. The book can be read anytime of the year.
