Boxcar Children #001: The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner
Boxcar Children #001: The Boxcar Children

I, too am 55 years old and read this book when I was in grade school. I am the oldest of five children. We were placed in foster homes when I was nine years old, 3 of us in one home and 2 in another. My mother had always had me help with the children and she said that the reason that we were going into foster care was because I had not done a good enough job doing so. I loved this book so much and have never forgotten the story because while reading the book I would think about how wonderful it would be to get my siblings back together and live the way the children in the story lived. Thank you so much for this book; it was so very comforting to me.
