The little engine that could review and giveaway!

The Little Engine That Could



I think I can, I think I can.
I loved this story as a child and now it is a movie for our kids to enjoy

The movie is set in Dreamland, where the trains take dreams out to the children. The illustrations are great the story line is fun.
There is a scary part in the movie with the nightmare train, but hang in there and it all ends with a happy ending
The overall message is that no matter how small you are, if you try you can.

I liked the movie and it was fairly easy to watch. Mr Magoo didn't but if you follow my blog you know that is the norm (has a thing against movies in general). The Princess watched it in bits and I did edit out the nightmare train part. (We have enough issues with sleep)


The Little Engine That Could is available in stores. But if you would love to win a copy here is your chance!
Leave me a comment telling me: something you have achieved that you really had to work hard at.
For an extra entry like me on facebook and come back and tell me.

Disclosure: I received a pre-release copy of The Little Engine That Could from Universal Pictures (Australasia) Pty Ltd to review and I was not paid to write this review. The views and opinions are purely my own

Hi Sarah, Something I have achieved that I had to work hard at was painting my house. It might not seem like much I know, but at the time it was a massive goal to achieve!
Thanks for the giveaway! :)

Hi Sarah,
My greatest achievement was giving birth to my two sons and watching them grow from little cherubs into wonderful young men who, between them, have produced four children - my gorgeous Grandkids.

Something I have had to work hard at is becoming more organised now that I am a Mum. It's completely different being a Stay at Home Mum- yes, some people may think you have more time, but in reality you don't! Time flies when you are having fun! Have I succeeded in becoming more organised... yes, but I still need to chant, 'I think I can, I think I can... I know I can...' often.

My greatest acheivement to date would be kicking my PND to the curb. I am not recovered in the least, but I now have enough support and resources to help any re-occurance to never be as bad as it once was!

Thanks for the giveaway

I have worked really hard to balance my working at home life with looking after my 2 little boys. Some days it can be a struggle but by having a timetable and day plan it makes it so much easier to get my hours done and get to spend quality time with the boys.
