Our family got to review the new Boxcar Children DVD! Remember the Boxcar Children books? We have a whole bunch of them. Now there's a movie! You can order your copy today through Walmart or Amazon, or you can enter to win the DVD below!
We enjoyed this movie! It's Dove approved for all ages, and there's nothing in it that I wouldn't want my kids to see. As the adult, there were a couple parts that were "predictable," but the kids didn't guess what was coming.
The four children in the movie were orphaned, and had nowhere to live. They try staying at a bakery, but they overhear the wife making plans to send the youngest off to the orphanage and have the older ones work for them. So the kids take off. Through rain and dark and adversity, they eventually find themselves in the wooded countryside, where they happen upon an old boxcar that is sitting on an unused rail line. This becomes their home, and they do an admirable job of fixing it up and living off the land.
The older brother gets a job in town, and is able to provide for the little family's needs... until the younger sister gets sick. They take her to the doctor, and this becomes the beginning of the end of their boxcar days.
