The Railway Children ~Book Report~

I just have finished the book: The Railway Children written by E. Nesbit  and will now do a report on it.

Here is a list of the pros and cons of the book:

Pro- The book is interesting.

Con- Not enough action.

Pro- Goes to show how people you love can disappear within minutes.

Con- Not enough detail on how the houses in the book looked.

Pro- Shows good teamwork.

Con- Hard to read.



My favorite part of the book was the ending when the dad came home to the kids and mother. My favorite character was probably Roberta aka Bobbi because she is brave, kind, outgoing, funny, and smart.


I think the most important people in the book are: The old gentleman, the dad, the mom, the three kids, and the doctor.
The book is about these three kids who lost their dad and had to move. They where rich in one life and poor in another, it must have been a hard change. They moved out to the country next to the railway which most of the book revolves around.
The book is good in its own way. Personally I wouldn’t read it again it just wasn’t really a book for me. It’s a good book but I would like more mysteries and action in it. Maybe even some romance. You can’t judge the book to much since is was made in 1906 which is a long time ago.
The kids are clever for their age and they are very grown up about everything and they definitely handled all the hard situations they had been through really well.


I would rate this book a 6.5/10 since it had so many cons.


Hope you enjoyed! 🙂
