About The Boxcar Children DVD 

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.

My Thoughts
We read the first book in the Boxcar Children series as a read-aloud for school a few years ago, so watching the DVD version with the small people was a lot of fun. I especially like that it is Dove Approved for all ages. Ballerina, my resident bookworm, absolutely loved how it stayed fairly true to the book. Little Red and Sassy also enjoyed the DVD; in fact, Little Red said that now she may actually try to read the books. Anything that encourages my small people to read is a plus.
