I loved reading the original Boxcar Children as a child, so H and I took a trip to the library to check it out. I really wanted to share this with her. Ofcourse it was checked out. So, I settled for a newer, more summarized version entitle Meet the Boxcar Children. It is an early reader.
This is the very first book EVER that Helana has sat still through and actively listened to during storytime. When we are finished, she asks to read it again. So, it seems there is more than nostalgia that will keep me returning to the Boxcar Children again and again.
