The Boxcar Children
Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny, four orphaned siblings, suddenly appear in a small town. The children make a home for themselves in an abandoned red boxcar they discover in the woods. Ambitious and resourceful, the plucky children make a happy life for themselves–until Violet gets too sick for her brothers and sister to care for her.

Surprise Island
Adventure abounds as Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny spend a summer living on their grandfather’s island. The kids confidently face everyday challenges armed with only their imaginations and the support of each other. Listeners are in for a suspenseful ride as the Aldens work together to discover the true identity of Joe the handyman before their holiday ends.

The Yellow House Mystery
Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny used to live alone in a boxcar. Now they have a home with their grandfather and are determined to solve the mystery that surrounds an old yellow house on his property when they find a letter written by the brother of a man who vanished! And that’s only the first startling discovery they make!

    " This is a very touching book!I would read this book to a 3rd-5th grade class. It bascially entails the experiences that some children experience after their parents suddenly past away.This book will allow students to see that obstacles may happen in your life ; but that you can still overcome it.

About the Author
Author Gertrude Chandler Warner

Gertrude Chandler Warner (1890–1979) is best remembered as the author of the Boxcar Children mysteries. As a child, she spent hours watching trains near her home and often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or freight car. In each story, she chose a special setting and introduced unpredictable, unusual, or eccentric characters to help highlight the Aldens’ independence and resourcefulness. She lived in Putnam, Connecticut, until her death in 1979.
