eBook Little Toot (Picture Hippo) download

by Hardie Gramatky

I bought this for a granddaughter who loves books. I bought this for her when I saw it was just like the original 1939 book with the same text and pictures. I had this book back in the 50's and loved it. We also had a record which sang the song of Little Toot that I have not been able to find. I would love to find that record. The song started like this.............Little Toot was just a tug, Just a happy harbor tug, And something about he tried but he could never behave.
A baby shower invitation asked for books in lieu of cards. Since Little Toot was one of my son's favorite books, I wanted to find a vintage copy, which I did. The book is similar to the Little Engine That Could in that it lets the reader know that even "little" ones can do wonderful things.
If you like the book "little Toot" this one is a great follow up at story time. It seems all the books for sale must be reading books from a school classroom library, ours has random crayon marks and came with a little popcorn in it.
Compared to the original "Little Toot" book this story is shorter.
The Nubble Lighthouse in York, ME is our favorite place to visit, having a book that includes one of my children's favorite characters and the Nubble Light is awsome!
Kept my 3year old grandson interested, loves trains n boats, this story was injoyable n taught lessons on making observations as you travel and to never go anywhere without telling an adult.
I had not seen this book for at least 3 decades. When I did see it, I knew I had to have a copy for myself. It was the first book I ever read and it brought back precious memories.

The story is about a frivolous young tugboat that would rather play than work. This damages his own and his family's reputation. By the time he is ready to turn over a new leaf, none will take him seriously. He does get his big chance, however, and redeems himself while saving the day when nobody else can.

This is the book that kindled my love of reading and stoked the fires of my fascination with ships. In that respect, it is still an influence in my life today.

For young readers, it is a good story in terms of entertainment and life lesson. The artwork helps as well. Great for kids!

A little advanced for my preschooler. But well written and illustrated.

I am 69 years old and I remember my mother reading Little Toot books to me and my brother and sister when we were little kids. I actually bought it to send to my sister for a nostalgia memory reminder. However, looking at the book I liked it because it has decent graphics plus plenty of story. Not like some children's books that barely write anything. Now I think I might save it to read to my grandkids.
Found on the MENSA reading list.
