I am sure most of you have read the Boxcar Children books with your kids (or at least some of them). My kids have enjoyed reading many of the books. There is a new animated movie based on The Boxcar Children that comes out today! We got a copy a little early and have been watching it over and over at our house.
Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.
If you haven’t read any if the books, let me tell you a little about the story. Four orphaned and homeless siblings happen upon an abandoned boxcar. The decide to live in it and make it their home. They find a nearby dump and use their creativity to furnish it and make it comfortable. The oldest brother goes into town to find work and meets a kind doctor who helps them in many ways. They are afraid of being caught and sent to a mean grandfather who they have never met so the other three stay hidden in the woods where their boxcar is. One day one of the children gets very sick and it forces them to reveal themselves in order to save the young girl. It turns out alright in the end, though! The story is very sweet and the kids just love it. Mine have watched it a few times. The youngest little boy in the movie reminds us of our own little one!
