an old-fashioned tale of four orphans who set out to make it on their own. Reading level 3, and a great read aloud for 6 and 7 year olds.

Growing up in North Carolina, my third grade teacher read this series to us and for the next couple of years our favorite game to play was Boxcar Children. Fast forward twenty-five years, and I'm 34 and now living in Connecticut... five miles away from the home of Gertrude Chandler Warner. There's even a Boxcar Children museum. I visit her grave every so often, just to pay tribute to the lovely lady who played such a vital role in my love for great literature.

One warm night four children stood in front of a bakery. No one knew them. No one knew where they came from.

Four orphan children set out to find a safe place to live and discover an old red boxcar that shelters them from a storm.

This is the first book in a wonderful series of books fromt the boxcar children!

This is a great story for children! My children enjoyed it very much. It's about 4 children who parents die and they have to fend for themselves. It was very creative and well written!
