A well written children's classic!

Would you listen to The Boxcar Children again? Why?

Yes, I read this in book format approx. 25 yrs. ago and adored it so I decided to read it for fun again or listen rather. The narrator is fabulous so I would definitely "re-listen" to it after I finish some other books.

What other book might you compare The Boxcar Children to and why?

Hmmm, maybe a Nancy Drew mystery since The Boxcar Children is a mystery of sorts. That's a difficult question.

Which character – as performed by Phyllis Newman – was your favorite?

Benny just came alive for me so he would have to be a favorite. I can just see him and his chubby little baby cheeks eating wild blueberries, adorable!

The Boxcar Children. Nbr 1

Beautiful story. Children enjoyed it thoroughly. We played it on a long ride to the beach.
