The little engine that could little golden book
Tootle by Gertrude CramptonAn interesting tale about a train growing up. It is all important to stay on the rails, but Tootle likes to get out in the pasture and play in the flowers. The whole town gets together to keep him on the rails.
This feels like a story of society controlling us and keeping us from being individuals to what will serve the community best. It feels like conformity to me.
It’s quite an interesting story and I find it fascinating that it triggers me in certain ways. I do have some rebellious nature in me and part of me wants Tootle to play in the flowers since the engine can.
The nephew likes to pick things out of the home bookshelf to read and this is an oldie. He gave it 3 stars. He isn’t so much into trains, but he picked it out. I give it 3 stars for making me think at least.
