The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner is a classic mystery book. This book is about four siblings. They are Henry, Jessie, Violet and baby, Benny. Their parents have died. The orphans hear their Grandfather who is now their guardian was mean to their mother. The brothers and sisters decide to avoid the evil fellow.
The orphans escape Grandfather Alden's clutches. They find themselves at a bakery and later in the woods. There in the woods, the foursome find a boxcar. The lowly boxcar becomes a home to the orphans. The resourceful children find a dump. In the dump, they find dishes, cups and silverware. Henry, the oldest, becomes a handyman for Dr. Moore.
Introduce the The Alden Family Mystery books series to your child. They are super chapter books. Let them visit Benny, Violet, Jessie and Henry. My brothers and I loved the series. We imagined ourselves facing the world as creatively as the siblings.
