The Boxcar Children is a classic series that I read when I was a child. Even today, my children have read all of the Boxcar Children series and have fallen in love with as much as I did when I was little.
Today, the Boxcar Children has a new animated series on DVD. My family received a copy for review and it has been playing in our DVD player ever since. With quality graphics and a wholesome story line, watching some of our favorite characters come to life on TV is delightful.
About the Film
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.
About the Cast

Simmons (Spiderman), Zach Gordon (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Joey King (Fargo), Mackenzie Foy (Twilight series), and Jadon Sand (LEGO: The Movie), this is the very first full-length, animated feature adaptation of Gertrude Chandler Warner’s best-selling classic!
