A delightful book for young readers( and not so young as well). I never read this as a child, and enjoyed it at 63. Reminiscent of another time, this one still works. The children smart and inquisitive, enjoy their time living near the railway station in the countryside. #booked2019 #PublicDomain. Read through serial reader, a great app for public domain books. Only one more prompt to be finished the entire year of prompts.
Looking for my next Serial Reader book and decided to finally read the Railway Children!
While I‘m nursing a cold and am doing everything to get well again before heading to our #litsyreadingretreat on Friday, I was thinking about comfort reading. Now there is a new entry on this on my blog: www.theconstantreader.net/blog 😊
My kids refused to read this with me, so I spent the afternoon reading it to myself.
5/5 ⭐️ Checkout my review of The Railway Children by E. Nesbit on my blog (link in bio). This was my favorite children‘s classic so far this year and I can‘t believe I had never heard of it before.

Reading outside before the heat becomes too much this morning. I never read this book as a child and I am finding it pretty interesting. At times it doesn‘t seem like a 100 year old book. And then the kids go and make friends with strangers and I chuckle to myself 😆 #strangerdanger wasn‘t a thing then
It‘s been a bit of a slog, but we finally finished this tonight, continuing my quest to read with my children all the books I didn‘t read when I was a child. Seth fidgeted through nearly all of this with lots of sighing and annoyance at the writing that feels so dated to him, but then we got to the end, both tried really hard not to cry, and he admitted he‘d actually enjoyed it. A big deal when you‘re 10 and trying to be cool 😆 #raisingreaders

Oh wow The my #favoritechildrensbook is the hardest prompt every. I love, love, love so many children's book. I will start off with the Railway Children. This book sparked my kimagination and I loved these kids making the best of a heartbreaking situation. I loved reading about their adventures.
I must have watched the film 50 times as a child but as an adult I couldn't remember a thing about it. I'm so glad I read it, brought the storyline back to me and what a cute story it is. I hope children still read and watch the railway children, its deserves its classic status and shouldn't be forgotten about.
Such fond memories of E Nesbitt! My kids are lucky enough to be seeing the play today - foyer all done like an old railway station - very cool! #fullofadventure
I very much liked this story of three children who must move with their mother from the comfort of their well-to-do London home to a small cottage in the country and "play at being poor" while their father is mysteriously away. A bit saccharine, maybe, but a well-written and comfy read nonetheless, with nicely-drawn and sometimes hilarious characters.
I don't have the nostalgia for this childhood book like a lot of adults do. This is my first time reading it. So keeping that in mind... The kids in this book were a little irritating in their Perfect Goodness. They are besties with every adult they come across ("Let's kiss and be friends!"), and they save people's lives every other chapter. Having said that, the writing is very clever. And the female characters are strong.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, I have just run across one of the first recorded uses of the word "snarky," right here in The Railway Children by E. Nesbit (1906). (She was always unconventional.)
