Win-It Wednesday: The Little Engine That Could Prize Package!

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 16, 2011 · 875 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!

The Little Engine That Could is coming to a DVD near you on Tuesday, March 22nd!

“I think I can, I think I can…” The timeless story comes to life in this all-new, feature-length film filled with fun and adventure! When Little Engine (Alyson Stoner, Cheaper by the Dozen) 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. Featuring an all-star cast, including Whoopi Goldberg (The View), Jamie Lee Curtis (Freaky Friday), Corbin Bleu (High School Musical) and Brenda Song (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), this “fun family film” (Francine Brokaw, Los Angeles Family Magazine) is one you’ll enjoy again and again.

We had the opportunity to view an advance copy of The Little Engine That Could, and it was a hit with our family! It's a twist on the classic story that kept my kids engaged for the duration. Plus as a parent I loved the positive messages delivered throughout the movie.
