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.

I have read this book many times that my copy has had to be replaced.

36 Amber March 16, 2011 at 11:50 pm

My mom used to read this book to me and my two younger sisters until we started reading it ourselves. The older of the two bought it for my now 8-month-old-son, and he loves when we read it to him. Now I'm excited to see how they turn this cherished childhood memory into a movie that I can take with us on the plane 4 times a year and during car trips to visit family.
