    "What a fun story!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Little Engine That Could the most enjoyable?

    This telling of the Little Engine story has fascinated my son who has autism and loves trains many times. The narrator has a fun voice and makes the story endearing and exciting! I would love to find more audibles like this one!

    "Not a good visual experience for young kids"

    I was very disappointed with the synchronized experience of the audiblekids books on the iphone app. The images are small and on an angle! Plus these books will not play on the iTunes bookshelf app. This is a picture book! Additionally, plus the instructions to accomplish these downloads needs improvement. Overall, Very disappointing.

    "No pictures, no fun"
    Any additional comments?

    Unlike other audio children's books I purchased for my granddaughter to use on my Kindle Fire, there is no turning of pages and thus no pictures to accompany the narration - just the same picture on the front of the book you stare at through the whole story. I didn't return it since I only paid 69 cents and it's a great story, but it's not nearly as engaging as the books showing all the pages.

    "Cute."

    My 2.5 year old loves to listen to this one in the car. Other good stories he likes are The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's Child, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Llama, Llama Red Pajama.

    "Motivational book for children of all ages!"

    This children's book is not just for kids. From time to time, when I am feeling down, I listen to this audio. This book brings a smile to my face. Next time I feel down, I remember that if the Little Engine could make it up that hill, so can I. My guess is this audio plays well for children. However, I am 50 years old, and the Little Engine always brings a smile to my face. I cannot think of a better motivational book turned audio for children of all ages.Excellent purchase!

    "Cute!"

    I loved this book as a child, and my kids love it too! I put it on my daughter's MP3 player and let her listen to this and other stories when she cannot sleep. It always seems to relax her and help her get to sleep.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's very cute! Recommended for car rides


    Any additional comments?

    It's a little short, but you can burn a CD of multiple of them for a car ride, which works well to keep kids quiet. ;)

    "My kids asked to listen again."

    My older son brought this home from school a couple weeks ago. All 3 kids were very excited to listen to The Little Engine and kept interrupting me to tell me about the pictures in the book when the animals met the different engines who would not help them.

    "Excellent Little Engine That Could"

    A lovely short story for children.

    Nicely read by the narrator & uses character voice for the engine.

    All children will like this.
