The Railway Children

Hello, readers of the Nesbit's famous book.
I hope that you've all read at least the first chapter. (Remember you have to read the first four chapters till next Wednesday!) In it the life of the three children changes for good. They move to a country cottage and they don’t know what really happened to their father. How do the children cope with the great change? How do they feel about the absence of their father? What do you think – why doesn’t mother tell them much about where the father is?
