My daughter came home with 5 pages of books to read from for her summer reading list. She is going into the 4th grade and is a good reader. On that list was the popular Gertrude Chandler Warner’s books called “The Boxcar Children”. I can’t believe that I had never read them as a kid. They are beloved classics! I am thrilled that she is reading through them and reading through them quickly. She is loving the books so far!
One of our favorite things to do is watch movies. When we can tie a movie with a book, it makes for a really fun way to motivate my oldest to read. I love how so many kids’ movies have books that go along with them now.
When a classic like “The Boxcar Children” team up with Shout Factory for a special After School special and then release a DVD/Blu-ray, my family and I get very excited for a fun reading series and movie!
This also gives me some time to catch up on a classic that I never read as a kid!
We are super excited to give TWO lucky readers a Bookshelf Book Series & a DVD! The DVD will be released on August 7th! You can order your copy today. You can also purchase the Bookshelf Book Set to read the books to your kids.
This giveaway is to celebrate the DVD release of this after school movie special!
