This post is in partnership with Shout! Factory. All opinions are my own. I love reading with my kids. Getting lost in new adventures, discovering new places, and opening our imaginations to things we never thought of. The Boxcar Children series have been favorites of mine since I was a little girl, and now I get to share these amazing stories with my kids.
My daughter was beyond excited when we got The Boxcar Children Bookshelf with books #1-12 and the new The Boxcar Children Surprise Island movie. We have already started reading the books again and watched the movie a few times.
The new movie is really great and is fun for the whole family to watch. I love the story, the animation is good and it brings to life the characters we love from the books.
