More About Gertrude Chandler Warner
Gertrude Chandler Warner was born on April 16, 1890, in Putnam, Connecticut. She came from a musical family and played the cello. Because of illness, she was unable to finish high school, and learned from a tutor. In 1918, because all of the male teachers were away fighting in World War I, she was asked to teach first grade. The majority of children in her class did not speak English well, and she made up "The Box-Car Children" in 1924. The book remained a single title, until it was republished in 1942, becoming very popular. Another book followed in 1949, then a total of 19 by the same author. A total of 154 books have been written as of 2013, although by different authors. Later in life, Warner became a volunteer for the Red Cross. She died on August 30, 1979, at the age of 89, and is buried in Grove Street Cemetery in Putnam.

I purchased this for my granddaughter for Christmas so I can't really comment yet on the books except to say that it arrived in perfect condition and in a timely manner. I'm sure she will enjoy them very much.

Here I am again looking for the list like Box 1-4 They don't say what books are in them. Could somebody plus let me know what books these are? Thanks for your time.
A Book Review From a Spiritridge Third Grader Mar 22, 2007
Do you want to read an amazing book? Well you should read the Box Car Children. There are four young children and they are really poor. They do not have food. Then they do not know what to do. Well, they run away from their house because they thought their dad did not like them. They found a boxcar. So they thought that the boxcar might take them somewhere, but it didn't pull them. The father was trying to find them but they did not want to be found.
What I like is that when they try to find food and on their way they found a hound. I like that part because I like dogs and I think they're cute.
I recommend this book to other readers who are in 2nd grade or 3rd grade because it is just right.
