Soo this kid I babysit has this thing for trains, right? Yeah boring, lots of 2-year-olds love trains blah blah…But since that love extends to cars and construction stuff, I’ve gotten into the habit of bringing some more mechanical-oriented kids’ books with me when I go to babysit him, yeah? Then I notice something: the stuff that he seems to get really interested in include a steam-powered tractor, a steam shovel, a steam boat…do you see where I’m going with this?
It can go two ways from here. Either Thomas the Tank Engine, or Steampunk.
I’m going to try and steer him towards the latter because Thomas creeps me the frick out.
