The Boxcar Children
I am almost 53 years old. They say a truly great book will last in your mind for a lifetime. Well I've gone through a lifetime and this book has stayed in my mind as one of my life time favorites. This book was read to me by my first grade teacher at Kate Waller Barrett Elementary School in Arlington, VA by my teacher, Mrs. Tall. A wonderfully brilliant teacher who opened my mind, heart and soul to my love of reading. I will be forever grateful to her for teaching to read and realize what was out in the world long before the internet showed us. This book is a wonderful read and I have read it so many times over to myself, my children and now my grandchildren. It became a series of books over the years but the first will always be my favorite. I just bought the audio version to listen to now. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
