The story is used to teach children the value of optimism and hard work. The story's signature phrases such as "I think I can" first occurred in print in a article in a Swedish journal. Charles S.

He personally hired Lois Lenski to illustrate the book.
Bragg's copyrighted by George H. Doran and Co. In the tale, a long train must be pulled over a high mountain after its engine breaks down. Larger engines, treated anthropomorphicallyare asked to pull the train; for various reasons they refuse.
The request is sent to a small engine, who agrees to try. The engine succeeds in pulling the train over the mountain while repeating its motto: "I-think-I-can". The story of the little engine has been told and retold many times. The underlying theme is the same — a stranded train The* - The Little Engine That Could unable to find an engine willing to take it on over difficult terrain to its destination.
Only the little blue engine is willing to try and, while repeating the mantra "I think I can, I think I can", overcomes a seemingly impossible task.
A little railroad engine was employed about a station yard for such work as it was built for, pulling a few cars on and off the switches. One morning it was waiting for the next call when a long train of freight-cars asked a large engine in the roundhouse to take it over the hill. Then the train asked another engine, and another, only to hear excuses and be refused. In desperation, the train asked the little switch engine to draw Golden Singers And Orchestra up the grade and down Sewer-Cide - Gomorrah - Reflections Of Inanimate Matter the other side.
However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can. The story begins with a toy-filled train pulled by a small red engine on its way to a town on the other side of a mountain but the engine shortly breaks down upon reaching the mountain. The toy clown flags down other engines to help them: a shiny yellow passenger engine, a big black freight engine, and a rusty old engine.
The shiny passenger engine and big freight engine both refuse to help them and the rusty old engine is too tired and must rest. Finally, a little blue engine arrives. Although she is simply a switcher engine and has never been over the mountain, she agrees to help pull the train.
In the end, she was able to successfully reach the top of the mountain before slowly heading down towards the town. In these versions another character appeared and remained a key part of the story hereafter — the clown ringleader The* - The Little Engine That Could the toys who attempts to find help with several locomotives but is rebuffed. The number of engines in the story also eventually became standard across the tellings: The happy locomotive on the toy train who breaks down and cannot go on, the pompous passenger engine who considers himself too grand for the task, the powerful freight engine who views himself as too important, and the elderly engine who lacks either the strength or determination to help the toys.
The little blue engine always appears last and, although perhaps reluctant some editions have the engine clarify her role as a switcher not suited for excursionsalways rises to the occasion Golden Singers And Orchestra saves the day for the children over the mountain. Each engine is defined by its appearance or function and is not given a name or personality beyond its role on the railroad.
It is only in the film adaption that the engines' personalities are expanded on, including Тартилла - Х.

The clown was also named "Rollo" and a sixth engine character, Docappeared briefly to recover the broken-down Georgia and thus tie up the hanging story-thread of what happened to the failed engine of the toy train, which all other versions leave unaddressed. The tale with its easy-to-grasp moral has become a classic children's story and was adapted in January as a minute animated film produced in Wales and co-financed in Wales and the United States.
The film named the famous little engine Tillie and expanded the narrative into a larger story of self-discovery. The story is incorporated into the special The Easter Bunny Is Comin' to Townin which the engine is named "Chuggs" and is commissioned by the Easter Bunny to deliver Easter candy.
