The Boxcar Children DVD Review
We love “The Boxcar Children.” Many curriculums, whether public, private or home school, have these wonderful books on their reading list. This series seems to be a huge hit for children of all ages. Finding a good, clean series that is age appropriate can be a challenge. My oldest loved this series so much that we acquired quite a collection of them.

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.

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!
I didn’t find any major inconsistencies between the movie and the book. My two oldest boys have read the books and they both loved the movie and have been asking to watch it again! Also, neither one of them could find any inconsistencies the book. In fact, my mom watched the movie with us and she is ready to purchase the entire Boxcar Children DVD series!
Have you heard your children saying something in that “slangy” talk? We all have heard it. I can’t stand all the slang talk in movies, especially children’s movies. I am THRILLED that this movie had NO slang talk or bad words. It is a wonderful, clean story that your entire family can enjoy watching over and again. My kids ages are 10, 7, and 5 and all of them loved it. I give the movie 10/10!!! If you love this book series you will want this movie!
