My review of the boxcar children (8yr old boy)

I think that this audio book is a great story and I love the way it is read! I have listened to other boxcar children story books and I think they are all great. I recommend all of the boxcar children audiobooks especially for children whose ages are from 4 to 10 yrs old (I am 8 and my brother is 5)
I am glad that it was created!

Best family audiobook experience ever

These are all so beautiful and good hearted and they teach self-reliance, relationship skills, and family values. Perfect for single parents, because the grandfather is the guardsmen and the role models are other adults.

Great for car ride entertainment

My kids loved it!! It's hard to come up with things to occupy them in the car, but when I started playing the Boxcar Children stories they were totally engrossed. Everytime they'd get in the car they'd request for me to play their story ☺️
