Horn Book Review

A Spanish-language version of the popular 'The Little Engine That Could' (Platt). The story loses all its original sonority since the English 'I think I can,' which reproduces the engine's sound, does not have a satisfactory equivalent in Spanish. Also, the story has minor mistakes in the accentuation of monosyllabic words. From HORN BOOK 1992, (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
