*Congrats to Jenny for winning the Veggietales DVD, an email is coming your way!*

When I was young, I loved reading The Boxcar Children Series.  I had them lined up along my headboard (which was a bookshelf), and loved how Gertrude Chandler Warner made me want to find my very own boxcar to live in.

When I was asked to review the new Boxcar Children DVD, I was excited to introduce HJ to the 4 siblings I fell in love with as a child.

After watching the film, HJ and I decided we would start reading the series together.  We have only located book #22 at my parents, but are still hunting (that means there are at least 21 more to find…I never skipped a book).

The film is about four orphaned and homeless siblings who come 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.

HJ and I loved having a movie night, cuddled up on the couch and watching The Boxcar Children.  I would love for one of you to win this DVD for your household.  Just leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite series was growing up, or what your kid’s favorite series is!  I will pick a winner next Sunday.
