The Boxcar Children is a story that will stay with the reader for years!

I read this book as a child - only the first in the series - but it has been a favorite book for 40 years plus now! It delightfully engages the reader's imagination and holds you captive till the outcome. It was a must read for my children and they equally loved it. ...

    more from this reviewer

    I bought this book because it looked intriguing and my mom read

    I bought this book because it looked intriguing and my mom read it to me as a child before.  When I finished it, I was unimpressed and completely disappointed.  It was not very exciting and was kinda boring.  If any of the characters had died, I'm sure I wouldn't come close to shedding one tear.  It was also short and the characters spoke strange.  I suggest this book for 11 years and under.
