Remember that familiar story of the Little Engine That Could? Before watching The Little Engine That Could on DVD all I could remember was the story of an engine that needed to go over a mountain and that when he believed that he could, he made it across the mountain. In The Little Engine that could animators applied music, magic, and confidence all in a great package. When Little Engine must leave Dreamland to deliver toys into the real world, she sets her fears aside and learns that with a little determination and courage, anything is possible. The Little Engine That Could debuts on DVD and Digital Download on March 22, 2011 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment with a cast of Whoopi Goldberg, Jamie Lee Curtis, Patrick Warburton, Dominic Scott Kay, Brenda Song, Corbin Bleu, Alyson Stoner.
I was watching this with my own children and Miles loves trains, he just loves them. While he was watching it he was enthralled. The whole story, music and adventure had him going from start to finish. My daughter, she enjoyed the story too. I was trying to tell her that the engine was working really hard to make it up the hill to save the day, just like she was working really hard to ride her bike up our hill the other day. Well, she said, mommy that’s a girl just like me. I’m really hoping that she sees the lesson in this video and starts to believe in herself and her ability to rider her bike. I hear the words “I can’t” a lot around here and now I have some ammunition to use against those frustrating words. What about The Little Engine that Could?
