The Boxcar Children DVD {Review and GIVEAWAY!}

The Boxcar Children books are a great series that so many people have enjoyed.  I remember reading The Boxcar Children books as a kid and now my kids are enjoying reading them.  I think just about everyone has at least heard of them, if not read at least one of them. So when I was offered a chance to review the new DVD of The Boxcar Children, I was excited and knew that my kids would be too!

We all really enjoyed watching this one together.  It is really well done.  I usually don't care for watching cartoons, but since this one was of a great story, I didn't even mind too much.  I like that the children are great examples for my own kiddos, kind and well-mannered. This is one movie that I don't mind my kids watching over and over.  I highly recommend this DVD as a wholesome movie for your whole family!  I hope that they make more of these!

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
Featuring an all-star cast of voice actors, including Academy Award Nominee Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now), J.K. 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!

Oh, cool!! I too read Boxcar Children as a kid! :)
My favorite series might have been the Anne of Green Gables though - also any Nancy Drew book. :)
