Please try again later. Paperback Verified download. Why would you take a classic children's book and abridge it?
It's already short. It's designed for kids. Why cut it down? Is paper that expensive? Time to find a normal copy. Perhaps in a physical bookstore this time. Or carefully reading reviews. Looking on a desktop, there seem to be dozens of different versions, all butchered in different ways. Perhaps site could find a way to place the normal edition at the top of the listings?

I wasn't sure at first if my almost 4 yr.
I would definitely recommend downloading this classic book for any child 5 and under. The artwork was nice, and the quality of the book is ok not greatly, but what I found irritating was how poorly the text lined up with the pictures.
The story would be describing one thing, and the associated picture would be on the next or previous page. And some sentences would roll over mid-sentence to the next page at a weird point. I've read many, many children's picture books, and I've never seen another book with so little consideration for aligning the text with the pictures.
It should be quite easy to do with any word processor. I was looking for a copy of this book that was exactly like the copies I already have in my daycare.
Puff, puff, puff. Ding-dong, ding-dong. But despite the locomotive's optimistic refrain — I think I can, I think I can, I think I can — the story has a somewhat checkered past: In its tracks, The Little Engine has left both a legal battle and a debate over whether the little blue engine is male or female.
The exact origins of the plucky, blue switch engine are a mystery.
Variations on the tale have been around for more than years. By day, Plotnick is a paleontologist at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Another version he found appeared in a New York newspaper article in about a church in Brooklyn that had finally paid off its mortgage after 39 years. The article reported on the minister's sermon: "They had a mortgage burning," says Plotnick, and the minister told a parable that is recognizable as a version of the story of the little engine: He then went to another great engine and asked: "Can you pull that train over the hill?
The superintendent was much puzzled, but he turned to still another engine that was spick-and-span new, and he asked it: "Can you pull that train over the hill? The most familiar version of the tale was inspired by a story called "The Pony Engine" and published in a children's magazine in by Massachusetts educator Mabel Bragg. She added new elements to the story including the broken-down train carrying cargo for kids like toys, peppermint drops, and — every child's favorite vegetable — spinach.
The first time The Little Engine That Could was published as a book was in with the credit "as retold by Watty Piper," a pseudonym for Arnold Munk, who died in It is so long and so heavy that I can't get it over. Don't you see how tired I am?
Can't you get some other engine to help you this time? After a while she came to a little steam engine just like herself. She ran alongside and said: "Will you help me over the hill with my train of cars? Both little steam engines went to the head of the train, one behind the other.
Puff, puff! Chug, choo! Off they started! Slowly the cars began to move. Slowly they climbed the steep hill. As they climbed, each little steam engine began to sing: "I-think-I-can!
