One day, however, I came across this big red hardcovered book titled, The Boxcar Children. Little did I know that this was to become one of my all time favorites. I was suprised to find myself completely enthralled with this book only after reading the first few pages. The story captured my heart completely. I was so into the book that I finished it in one sitting. Which was definitely a first for me. I often imagined what I would do if my parents died, and my two sisters and I were orphaned. How would we survive on our own? I admired the way the children were able to care for themselves with what little money, food, and shelter they had. I wanted to feel that strength and courage inside me. It is truly a story of independence, strength, and love in it's purest form. I finished this book with a better sense of myself, and my own abilities. I returned the book the following week, but checked it out as often as I could. I never grew tired of reading about their adventures.
As a teenager and even an adult, I would occasionally search through the children's section of the library for this book, but was unsuccessful in finding it. However, last year I was in my local Bookshop looking for some books for my 9 year old niece. And wouldn't you know it...there it was! Not only the original Boxcar Children, but a whole series. I wasn't even aware they had a series. So without a doubt, I picked up my favorite children's book, among a few others, and gave them to my niece as a birthday gift. It was no surprise when she told me that The Boxcar Children was her favorite. I feel it's the perfect bedtime story book, and I can't wait to share it with my own children someday.
I am much older now, and I'm glad to say my literary repetoire has matured with age, but this children's book will always remain a favorite. I recently celebrated my 27th birthday, and my fiance has the hardest time finding me the perfect gift. We've been together almost 10 years, and in those years came a variety of gifts. Everything from clothes, overpriced dinners & shows, gold, pearls, and evens diamonds. But this year, he gave me one the the most heartfelt gifts. He gave me something that would allow me to escape the stress of my adult life when ever I need to. So there I sat staring at my gifts and silently guessing what trinkets I was about to receive. I slowly opened a plain brown cardboard box, unfolded the white tissue paper, and found laying at the bottom of the box, a hardcover edition of the original Boxcar Children. My most cherished gift--Thank you CB!
A bookmobile came to our school in Syracuse, New York and invited anyone interested to visit. I remember thinking, "what a easy way to get out of class," so I jumped into the book filled truck and started to browse. I stumbled across "The Boxcar Children" and began to read a few sentences, then paragraphs... I couldn't put the book down.
It's been 29 years and I still remember the story as if I read the book yesterday. It's adventurous, heart-warming, and intelligent. It's tells how friendship, love & unity can help you overcome even the worst circumstances. I recommend this book to children of all ages!
