The Boxcar Children is now an animated film for children of all ages to enjoy on DVD ~ #review #giveaway #TheBoxCarChildren


About the movie:
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.
Featuring an all-star cast of voice actors, including Academy Award Nominee Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now), J.K. 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!


My Review:
What a wonderful way to share my favorite children's book from my youth with my kids!  I love that Boxcar Children is now an animated movie that my children and I all love and can watch together over and over. Since viewing this DVD, my older daughter - age 9, and myself have both re-read the first book in the series again to refresh our memories and have watched this DVD together several times.  It sticks right along with the story I loved as a child and remains one of my favorite series for children to read!
