The Boxcar Children books were read by all of my children when they first started reading on their own, some read multiple times. The Boxcar Children DVD is about four orphaned children who try to make it on their own and end up turning an abandoned boxcar into their home.

My oldest daughter thought that the movie followed the first book really well. There are over 100 books, and all of my kids want to see this DVD turn into a series.

About the Film
Four orphaned and homeless siblings happen upon an abandoned boxcar, which with a little creativity and hard work, they gradually furnish with all the comforts of home. Fearful that they will be sent to live with the reputedly cruel grandfather they have never met, the children keep their new home a secret - until a serious illness forces them to reveal themselves in order to save young Violet.

  14. I read the first 30 books as a child and saved them for my own children. My oldest has now read all of them. She loves them. I can't wait until my son is ready to read them on his own as well!
