    when I was in third grade many many moons ago the teacher would read us a chapter every week it was about a family of children who lived in a railroad car and their adventures but I wish I knew the name of it. Thanks

    I read the Boxcar Children, and the Bobbsey Twins at about the same time... I hadn't thought about the Boxcar Children in years :D
    We talked here a while ago about the Bobbsey Twins and some other older favorites... however did we miss this one? :D:D:D

    It was the boxcar children. There were a series of these books written by American writer and first-grade school teacher, Gertrude Chandler Warner.

    Yes, these are still published under her name and now there are updated ones. Even in graphic (comic) novel style. Kids still like them.
