WILL BUD BE ABLE TO SAVE MOLLY?
This story takes place in an era of our history when trolleys were an important part of everyday life and valued for their usefulness. Electric trolleys were only around for a short time but as an introduction to mass transportation, their impact on our society was significant. This story blends entertaining text with educational content to describe how the fate of one trolley car is changed because of a promise. The bond of love and friendship between the trolley and a boy named Bud ultimately prevents the destruction of the trolley, once she is no longer considered useful. Molly The Trolley And Bud would make a good compliment to a unit on transportation at the second and third grade levels.
