The Railway Children (Book Review)

The Railway Children;

Amazon Book description;

This is a delightful reading of a classic story by Edith Nesbit, first published in 1906. When father is suddenly taken away, mother and the three children must leave their fancy London life to live in a simple country cottage near a train station. The children and their bottomless good nature, together with some new friends, work to rescue father and help others along the way. Narrator Virginia Leishman makes this old-fashioned world come alive for today's children without resorting to melodrama. The recording is flawless and without unnecessary fanfare, making it a wonderful way to introduce a classic to young listeners.

Joanna’s review;

I never had a chance to read this book. And I thought it was such a brilliant adorable story. I didn’t listen to the book recording but I did read it. And it was a cute little story. I am sure if I read it when I was little, I would have loved it. I highly recommend it.

  1. I love E. Nesbit. There's a PBS movie version of this book that's very good.
