      Actually The Boxcar Children's books are the first little chapter books I remember reading. We used to go to the bookmoblie to check out books in our small town...

      The Boxcar Children. A children book I read in elementary school, tells the story of four orphaned children, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny. They create a home for themselves in an abandoned boxcar in the forest.

      The Boxcar Children: the first in a long series of chapter books for early chapter book readers following the exploits of a group of brothers and sisters and their boxcar. I didn't much care for the series; it's not great literature. But my daughter absolutely loved it and read and reread every one as a child and she's a well-adjusted adult to this day, so it did her no harm. My favorite book of all time..

    I cannot tell you how many times I read that account of a family of orphans who settled into a boxcar to live.

    "Best and worst book of my childhood". And there was always a waiting list for it at the library at my elementary school.
