Four children: Henry, Jess Violet and Bennie. They are living alone in a stranded boxcar. They find items they need from the dump and a stray dog whom they name Watch.

All readers were clear and pleasant to listen to. The book holds up better than expected.

listening to this brought back SO many memories! this was the first book i can remember reading alone, for the enjoyment of reading and not for school. all of the readers did a good job. the story of kids running away and taking care of themselves because they are more scared of an unknown family member than of the unknown wide wild world. some pleasant lessons and a reminder to kids that getting outside and playing and using your imagination to create things is FUN (so unplug and leave the electronics inside).

They should add more boxcar children books. I will give 5 stars when you put more.

I loved reading this The Boxcar Children when I was in 5&6 grade...many years ago. I even owned a hardback copy of the book at one time. I was delighted to see there was a Librivox recording of it. The readers were varied but it was fun to hear younger readers and older readers read such a fun and pognant tale. I have fallen in love with The Boxcar Children all over again. Thank you!

love the book
