Staff Reading Pick
Book: The Boxcar Children Beginning: The Aldens of Fair Meadow Farm by Patricia MacLachlan
Recommended by: Karen, Assistant Director
Recently I was able to visit some old friends, the Boxcar children that were created by Gertrude Chandler Warner. Patricia MacLachlan gave the children a new voice by giving them a beginning. She writes: "Before they were the Boxcar Children, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden lived with their parents at Fair Meadow Farm. Although times are hard, the Aldens are happy - the best family of all, Mama likes to say." What a treat! Read it aloud with your children today.
