    The shock involved in crying over a children s book that endorses theft, children soliciting favours from old men, and frequent acts of trespass on to Railway property is hard to describe.As is the dislocation in reading a Father tell his son that girls are as clever as boys before inviting his daughter to consider a railway career, and a man with a Polish surname imprisoned in Siberia for offending the Russian state Still, I am fairly sure that this was published in 1906 and not 2006, afterall there was a film with Bernard Cribbins and Jennifer Agutter wasn t there Anyway, the timetable requires that this review moves out of the station, and as it emerges between the platforms and buildings we can see something of the structure of the novel There are three rescues performed by the children view spoiler the landslip view spoiler interesting he...

    Pilot for the Celebrity Death Match Review Tournament, The Railway Children versus Atlas ShruggedIt s a capacity crowd tonight at the Surrealist Boxing Stadium, and everyone s wondering if The Railway Children have a chance against Atlas Shrugged I can see them in the blue corner, I must say they look nervous, they know they re behind on weight and reach but their supporters are out in force, that s always worth a lot, Bobbie is trying to calm Phyllis, she s whispering something in her ear And it s the bell, Atlas Shrugged goes straight for them, oh no, she s already got the children s father arrested, we could be looking at a first round knockout here, but the mother rallies, she s ducking and weaving and she s managed to get the kids off to Yorkshire, they move into their new home The ref...

    Question Why do I read Children s Literature Answer I read them because they are feel good stories and they fill you to the brim with hopes They teach you great lessons through simple actions and easy sentences.Question Did The Railway Children fulfill these expectations Answer Certainly My Four Stars rating is the proof of that.Question Why not a Five star rating Answer Unfortunately I fell in the trap of comparison game I compared it with other books of similar genre that had received five star rating Heidi and I think it fell short of few points.Question What did you learn Answer Many things Among them the best lesson I think was that if you make yourself friends with everyone no matter what their statuses are you will have a happy life It may not be easy But here is the hint given in the book about how to be friends It reads I THINK EVERYONE IN THE WORLD IS FRIENDS IF YOU CAN ONLY GET THEM TO SEE YOU DON T WANT TO BE UN FRIENDS.Question Is the story about friendships Answer Yes It is about a lovely family with three kids When the family is reduced to poverty they are forced to move to a vil...

    Recently, I have been going through a phase of revisiting my favourite childhood reads to see if they still garner the same awe and satisfaction when read as an adult This, I was happy to discover, is as beloved to me now as when I first read it as a child.My younger self appreciated the focus on sibling bonds from their minor feuds to their lasting camaraderie but my older self has discovered the darker and harrowing story line, that I either seem to have prior missed or that had completely slipped my recollection I believe that these ...

    changed my mind this is a 5 STAR BOOK I am overwhelmed by the emotions and was hungover for a day The whole journey throughout this book was magical It was nostalgic It was beautiful This book tells the story of three children whose father is taken away by the police and they have to live with their mother in poverty nearside a railway station.If poverty is living in a wonderful countryside, meeting with lively people, roaming around free and exploring new areas then I will happily accept it and of course the ending is great.Some wonderful lessons from this book Also she had the power of silent sympathy That sounds rather dull, I know, but it s not so dull as it sounds It just means that a person is able to know that you are unhappy, and to love you extra on that account, without bothering you by telling you all the time how sorry she is for you Don t you think it s rather nice to think that we re i...

    One thing I ve noticed while reading the classics is that most of them center around female characters I find that interesting, especially when you look over American educational statistics and see that girls generally fair much better at English class than boys Perhaps this could be a reason It was a relief, then, to read The Railway Children and discover that female and male characters get equal play in this book In fact, it was the favorite book of a male friend of mine when he was little, which just proves my point Like most classics, this book was first published in the early 1900s, but there are surprisingly few outdated references most obviously, the lack of electricity in every home.The story centers around three children, Roberta, Phyllis, and Peter They are pampered but not annoying , wealthy, and generally have a pretty tame life until the night that their father is taken away Suddenly, they are forced to move out of their home to a tiny, rundown cottage in the country, and their mother is now perpetually busy writing childrens stories so that they c...

    Children who have grown up with Matilda, The Dumb Bunnies or The Cat in the Hat can t really appreciate what an advance Edith Nesbit s The Railway Children actually was For the first time, an author wrote about children who weren t miniature adults, who weren t preternaturally perfect, but who were flesh and blood children, children who quarreled and worried and snapped at one another when they grew fatigued or anxious.Nesbit also provides a somewhat realistic view into the Edwardian period When their father gets sent to prison, only their mother s writing keeps Roberta Bobbie , Peter and Phyllis from utter destitution As young as they are, the children can no longer attend school, as their mother can t afford the school fees Indeed, Bobbie has to serve as babysitter for her younger siblings The only unrealistic bit is that they re able to keep a servant at all Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed this fairytale story of the falsely accused prisoner and of how a good deed for ano...

    Did you know that C.S Lewis was greatly influenced by E Nesbit s literature He adopted a similar writing style and mannerism to hers In fact, he went as far as to mention the children in this story, the Bastable children, in his book The Magician s Nephew Now you want to go back and read it, don t you.So if you re a Lewis fan, you ll be delighted with this book and will enjoy discovering what aided his inspiration.And if you re not a Lewis fan, well, first you should take yourself in for a check up because something is decidedly the matter with your composition, and secondly, you ll still like this book because it s about children who say the funniest of things, siblings who love each other and the odd situations they find themselves in.Take, for instance, the time when all the children became shy in front of the old gentleman they owed so much too Oh, said Phyllis, my heart s thumping like a steam engine right under my sash, too Nonsense, said Peter, people s hearts aren t under their sashes I don t care mine is, said Phyllis If you re going to talk like a poetr...

    Listened to a Librivox recording of this classic during a nine hour car ride It kept me entertained throughout the journey and also helped to keep carsickness at bay I would probably have enjoyed this a lot had I read this in my early teens, when I was obsessed with authors like Enid Blyton It s a charming, feel good children s story with a cast of precocious kids who have the...
