For anyone that has children, or are kids at heart, the "The Boxcar Children Mysteries" were truly the start of my love of reading. They gave me, for the first time, a real escape into the amazing world of fiction, and literature. My Nieces and Nephews have followed my path (with encouragement) into this fantastic series.

Okay, now THESE are books I read as a kid and DO remember! The Boxcar Children used to be my favorite series. I read the first one over and over, many times. I would definitely recomend these, great children's books.
The Boxcar Children mysteries are a great series to start your young child on! This series is about four young orphans who go on adventures solving mysteries. It is a fun and exciting series for young people.
Allright, I know I read these when I was very young. But I don't remember them. Maybe when Izzie is old enough we could read them together.
Loved these as a kid! I remember waiting for them to be returned to the school library. I wanted to read them in order.
These are childhood favorites for me. I read them over and over! They were a wonderful escape!
My six year old loved this and it's one of his favorite books so far.
