Big enough for the whole class

Want Not veterans know that every year around this time, I start watching a couple of oversize gift edition books for price drops. And right now the oversize gift edition of The Little Engine That Could is down to just $8.12 at Amazon! I’ve seen these go as low as around $6, in the past, but they also sell out quickly, and $8 for a giant (14.5″ x 17″), beautifully illustrated volume like this is still a steal.

This is the perfect gift for your preschool or early elementary school kids’ teacher, for the classroom. And you’ll look like a big spender, too. Don’t worry—I’ll never tell.


  1. All right! This is PERFECT for my son’s kindergarten teacher! Thanks!

  2. Thanks, Mir! This will be awesome for my sons’ preschool and Kindergarten teachers.

  3. Our kindergarten and preschool teachers thank you!

  4. The regular price is $85?!?!?! Seriously? (Am I the only one who looks at the regular price?). This is a steal.

  5. Just picked this up for my daughter’s kindergarten teacher! Thanks, Mir!

  6. Annette: Amazon is notorious for inflating “original” prices. But I do believe the original price is around at least $35.

  7. sold out now 🙁
