The Railway Children | Edith Nesbit
post image

A sweet story about the many adventures of 3 endearing children who live near a train track in the countryside near London. The children have hearts of gold, and always try to do the right thing, even if, being human, they may have a few missteps along the way. Written in 1905, the story works well as a period piece. ⬇️

julieclair Some of the language, social norms and attitudes are very different from today, and the children have much less supervision than would be considered safe in today‘s world. I think many of today‘s children, particularly Americans, would find some of the vocabulary and references difficult to understand. #ChildrensClassicRead2022 @TheBookHippie @Pantone2022 #PolarNight @Clwojick 1mo
Ruthiella I didn‘t read this as a child, but when I did read British books, I just read past what I didn‘t understand. I was an adult before I finally discovered what a “waistcoat” was! 😂 1mo

julieclair @TheBookHippie I wish I had read this as a child… I would have absolutely loved it! I still enjoyed it as an adult, but as a child it would have been magic. 1mo
