The Boxcar Children books 1-4 and Spooktacular Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.

My 8 year old loves to read.  He truly enjoyed reading all of the Boxcar Children Graphic novels over the Summer.  I thought he might enjoy the books too, so he started on those.  Has your child read any of the Boxcar Children books?  These are excellent stories that got their start in 1942 by Gertrude Chandler Warner.  These are books that you really can feel good about your child reading too! 

The stories begin with 4 children that are found in front of a bakery.  Nobody knows why they are there or who they are.  These children are orphans.  They were very hungry too.  The main characters are siblings.  Their names are Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny.  They want to be able to stay together as a family.  They end up finding a boxcar to sleep in.  The stories progress with the children throughout the books.  The characters are likable.  My son enjoys reading about them.  The first 4 books are wonderful.  They even go spend the Summer on a private island where they meet a new friend.  The third book is a mystery where they find a clue to the mystery of a missing man from a yellow house.  The fourth book is where the children visit their aunt Jane who is very mysterious.  These are really great books for children 7 and up.  You can visit the Boxcar Children website to purchase these or learn more about them.

This is a great compilation of 3 of the Boxcar Children books.  They are on the more spooky side.  Are you looking for some spooky stories with Halloween coming up?  These are perfect.  They are a great way to get your child in a spooky mood and ready for Halloween.  The book contains The Zombie Project, The Mystery of the Haunted Boxcar, and The Pumpkin Head Mystery.  This book retails for about $9.99.

These are just some of the many Boxcar Children Books that are available.  You can visit their website to learn more about all of them or to order them as well.  You can also connect with the Boxcar Children on Facebook and Twitter.
