Mike Mulligan and his Steam shovel/ by Virginia Lee Burton
Virginia Lee Burton is also the author of a book i recently read for this blog: "The little house". Her style of telling stories leaves a lump in your throat: it is the second book where she speaks about old friends becoming less valuable and needed ans new times come and new gadgets appear. In the end these old friends go to the country where they can still serve and be useful.
I am glad that Mike Mulligan knew, that "the old friend is better than 2 new ones". Mike Mulligan knew that he will never switch his gorgeous Mary Anne to electric and gas shovels. He and Mary Anne left for the country and their adventures began......
Fanatastic story for any preschooler. I enjoy books by Virginia Lee Burton very very much!
