I have always heard such good things about this children's series...but never took the time to read any of the books. This year I decided to make a concentrated effort to revisit favorite books/series that I love and to finally read books I've always wanted to read. This series made the list. I'm so glad I took the time finally to enjoy this sweet story! I enjoyed it enough to read more!

The Boxcar Children series was originally started in the 1920's. Gertrude Chandler Warner was a first grade teacher, and wanted to write an adventure story for young children. This first book was originally published in 1924, but revised, edited and re-released in 1942. Warner added 18 more books to the series, starting with Surprise Island in 1949. More than 132 books were added to the series by other authors, as well as a couple spin off series. I can understand why -- this adventure story is sweet, engaging and fun to read. I'm 50 years old, and still loved this tale of four children who want to stay together at all costs after the loss of their parents.

This first story introduces Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny. After being orphaned, they are roaming and working to survive as a family. They have a grandfather, but they are afraid of him. They find an abandoned boxcar near a town and make it their home. They trust very few people because they are afraid of being sent to an orphanage and split up. They have quite the adventure! Great story for kids and adults!

I listened to the audio book version of this story (Oasis Audio). Narrated by Aimee Lilly, the audio is just under 2 hours long. Lilly reads at a nice, steady pace and has a pleasant voice. She gave a great performance. This audio would be fun and interesting for both kids and adults.

I'm definitely going to keep reading this series. It's happy, innocent and enjoyable. Sometimes I need a "feel good'' story, even if it was written for young children. :) ( )

I loved this book as a kid. I owned it and read it time and again. Reading it at age 40... it doesn't hold up so well. There's little substance to the book. The voice is quaint though rings as stilted, even for a period piece. What I still like best is the 'competence porn' aspect: these kids are great at surviving on their own. I loved their inventiveness like their behind-the-waterfall fridge and the way they rummage in the junkyard for tools and devices to repurpose. The gender roles are pretty strict, though, and wow does the ending come across as heavy-handed with the 'shun luxury, live best through simplicity' vibe. Very like Heidi, really, another childhood favorite that I re-read last year that awed me with its heavy message. I was also struck by the idea that as poorly-off as these kids are, with their parents dead and being homeless, they are still privileged. This would be a very different book if they weren't white.

This book was one of my childhood favorites. I loved reading how the four orphaned children made a home out of an old boxcar. ( )

this is the only boxcar children book i've ever read, and i never had interest in the others because the kids end up with their grandfather at the end. i think the whole boxcar idea fulfilled some kind of independence-fantasy i had as a child (see also: my side of the mountain). ( )
