5.0 out of 5 stars Just right for a toddler 12 July 2012
By organic mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
We bought this book to help our daughter with potty training. The story has helped us encourage her to be confident. I don't recall the full version of the book, but this abridged version gets the story line across well and is just the right level of detail and length for a 2 1/2 year old. The book also seems very sturdy and is slightly larger than most of our other board books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strangely abridged 2 Aug 2013
By TZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This is an abridged edition. I don't have the original, so I don't know how it reads, but the abridged version feels like it chunks of the story are missing. It also prominently features a clown. I don't know why adults think children like clowns, but toddlers are afraid of clowns. My son loves the train, but doesn't like the clown, so he is sort of ambivalent about this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too abridged 22 Aug 2013
By Leo Dirac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
My memory of this book from childhood is of the blue engine repeating "I think I can" over and over and over again -- using persistence to overcome hardship. But in this version, that doesn't happen much at all. Oh well.

3.0 out of 5 stars abridged edition missing a lot 16 Jan 2014
By jpb mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
The abridged edition just isn't the same story. Too much cut and it misses the mark, The "I think I can" part is barely even there, which is the whole point of the book. Pictures are great and the same as the original though
