I wonder how many people remember reading books for their childhood. However, when you have little kids that you get to read to things start to come back. It’s weird how many little kid books are packed full of messages and take home points. Yet most kids aren’t always going to understand. That said, is there really a better message than the positive self-talk message of the little engine that could. In addition to the I think I can I think I can. In addition to that it has a very “The Good Samaritan” vibe about the least expected being the only one to help. Hopefully kids can hold onto these great messages or maybe adults can start writing better or more obvious conclusions to their stories.
