The Little Engine That Did
This is the Little Engine That Did. It is a retelling of the story, The Little Engine That Could.
One of the guests on Goal Getting Podcast, Aaron Walker, has a quote that he lives by.The quote is one from his mother. The quote is
When I heard that quote, I loved it. A few days later, I had to prepare a speech for my Toastmasters club. I am working from the advanced manuals as I am working on my Advanced Communicator designation. The manual I was working in was the Storytelling manual.
My project required me to rewrite and tell another story. Aaron Walkers quote gave me an idea to retell the Little Engine That Could story. I heard the story when I was young and it helped mold me into someone that was always open to trying new things, volunteering to help others and to be the best I could be.
I rewrote the story for my Toastmasters speech. Unfortunately, I didn’t video record that speech. I recorded it a few days before the speech to practice it. This is the recording. I edited it to add train sound effects. I would like to thank the following people as attribution:
and also to SoundBible.com for providing the downloads of these sound effects.
I hope you like the story and will think it good enough to share with your kids. I used to read to my girls when they were little and the original story The Little Engine That Could was one that I often read to them.
Below is a link to the PDF of the story that you can read to your kids.
