About “Gertrude Chandler Warner

  • Gertrude Chandler Warner

    Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in Putnam, Connecticut, on April 16, 1890, to Edgar and Jane Warner Her family included a sister, Frances, and a brother, John From the age of five, she dreamed of becoming an author She wrote stories for her Grandfather Carpenter, and each Christmas she gave him one of these stories as a gift Today, Ms Warner is best remembered as the author of THE BOXCAR CHILDREN MYSTERIES As a child, Gertrude enjoyed many of the things that girls enjoy today She loved furnishing a dollhouse with handmade furniture and she liked to read Her favorite book was ALICE IN WONDERLAND Often on Sundays after church, Gertrude enjoyed trips to visit her grandparents farm Along the way, she and Frances would stop to pick the wildflowers they both loved Gertrude s favorite flower was the violet.Her family was a very musical one They were able to have a family orchestra, and Gertrude enjoyed playing the cello Her father had brought her one from New York a cello, a bow, a case and an instruction book All together, he paid 14 Later, as an adult, she began playing the pipe organ and sometimes substituted for the church organist Due to ill health, Ms Warner never finished high school She left in the middle of her second year and studied with a tutor Then, in 1918, when teachers were called to serve in World War I, the school board asked her to teach first grade She had forty children in the morning and forty in the afternoon Ms Warner wrote, I was asked or begged to take this job because I taught Sunday School But believe me, day school is nothing like Sunday School, and I sure learned by doing I taught in that same room for 32 years, retiring at 60 to have time to write Eventually, Ms Warner attended Yale, where she took several teacher training courses Once when she was sick and had to stay home from teaching, she thought up the story about the Boxcar Children It was inspired by her childhood dreams As a child, she had spent hours watching the trains go by near her family s home Sometimes she could look through the window of a caboose and see a small stove, a little table, cracked cups with no saucers, and a tin coffee pot boiling away on the stove The sight had fascinated her and made her dream about how much fun it would be to live and keep house in a boxcar or caboose She read the story to her classes and rewrote it many times so the words were easy to understand Some of her pupils spoke other languages at home and were just learning English THE BOXCAR CHILDREN gave them a fun story that was easy to read Ms Warner once wrote for her fans, Perhaps you know that the original BOXCAR CHILDREN raised a storm of protest from librarians who thought the children were having too good a time without any parental control That is exactly why children like it Most of my own childhood exploits, such as living in a freight car, received very little cooperation from my parents Though the story of THE BOXCAR CHILDREN went through some changes after it was first written, the version that we are familiar with today was originally published in 1942 by Scott Foresman Today, Albert Whitman Company publishes this first classic story as well as the next eighteen Alden children adventures that were written by Ms Warner.Gertrude Chandler Warner died in 1979 at the age of 89 after a full life as a teacher, author, and volunteer for the American Red Cross and other charitable organizations After her death, Albert Whitman Company continued to receive mail from children across the country asking for adventures about Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny Alden In 1991, Albert Whitman added to THE BOXCAR CHILDREN MYSTERIES so that today s children can enjoy many adventures about this independent and caring group of children.

  • I remembered loving these books as a child, especially the first and so recommended it to my 8 year old That was 2 months ago We read the first 4 together, she has read another 15 on her own She says she loves them Of course, it happens that 19 is the last written by Gertrude Chandler, so perhaps the tone will change my daughter likes the mysteries, the adventure, and says she prefers the historical stories like Surprise Island, the Bicycle Mystery, Benny Uncovers a Mystery, Treehouse Mysery, Wo [...]

  • These books were my first reads from a public library I still remember my mother walking me into the library for the first time and helping me pick out some books I was in awe of the place I remember that I initially liked these books because they were about children having an adventure on their own We used to build forts in the back yard and on my grandpa s farm, so when I read about these kids living in a boxcar, I could immediately imagine what it must be like to make a home for yourself in t [...]


  • I grew up loving these books They were a staple in my reading list My daughter brought one home from the library recently and I hope she can find the story as interesting as I did in my youth A great series.


  • As a child, I read these first 4 books of the series, over and over My elementary school librarian joked that the library s copies might as well have been mine.I hope my own daughter will find the same enjoyment in these books when she is older.


  • I loved the first one, but it stopped being fun once they stopped living in a train and started being millionaires.

  • The book, The Box Cart Children, is about these kids that are orphans because their mom and dad died They have a grandfather but they think that their grandfather will not treat them right One day they were walking around and they crossed a bakery and bought some bread and a cupcake for the you youngest child Binny, who was begging for it Benny is about 6 years old Henry the oldest child about 14 years old and paid for the food and Jessi the 2nd to oldest put the bread in her backpack.Violet the [...]


  • This book is geared to elementary age children, its great for helping kids learn to love reading I loved these books because they have a good plot and the children in this book are self reliant, positive, family oriented and very hard workers and that is refreshing to read about these days I think kids reading this book will enjoy the adventures and maybe even learn to find creative solutions to their problems and help each other like the siblings in this book do Loved it


  • I read all the Boxcar Children books as a kid and LOVED them They are an awesome series that are entertaining for children I highly recommend them Have such fond memories Cannot wait to read and or share them with my grandchildren one day.






  • These were childhood favorites of mine, and so I was quite pleased to learn that my local library had them They re actually still great reads very wholesome, and good for all ages.

  • When I read the boxcar children, I can t help but wish that I had parts of their lives I m reminded that self sufficiency is a worthy goal and the fun of discovery is everywhere around us.In book one, the kids have lost their parents and find the boxcar to live in I enjoyed their ingenuity, using the creek as a refrigerator and finding a old kettle they can string up to cook.In book two, the kids have reunited with their grandfather, who lets them live on an island slightly supervised for the su [...]


  • I never read these as a child, though the initial idea of four orphans making their home in a boxcar would have greatly appealed to me so I m not sure how I ended up missing them Reading these as an adult though, I had mixed feelings They are very simple and pleasant books for young readers, but unlike other classic books I dont think they stand up well to the test of time In the first book they live in a boxcar but by the end they live with their grandfather and their adventures include emotion [...]


  • These are enjoyable, and we ve read all four aloud to our 6 and 4 year old, but I need at least a year break from the Boxcar series before I read any aloud.


  • These books are written for ages 7 and up, and is really written for them Written by a teacher, and using the most simple and common words in the English language for the purpose of teaching proper grammar and spelling, Ms Warner also knew what kids of this age were beginning to fantasize about a world without adults, but with the safety net of good friends or in this case family the idea of running away exploring grief the wilderness testing the limits of society, and the necessity of education [...]


  • Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny are four orphaned brothers and sisters who mysteriously appear in a small town on a warm summer night No one knows who these young wanderers are or where they have come from The kids are scared to live with a grandfather they have never met, the children make a home for themselves in an old abandoned red boxcar they discover in the woods Henry, the oldest, goes to town to earn money and buy food and supplies while the other kids make a home in the boxcar finding o [...]


  • When I think of reading in elementary school, it is The Boxcar Children books that come to my mind In fact, I wrote my first book report on the first book in the series you know, the one with the red boxcar on the front I still remember the names of the Alden kids Jessie, Ben, Violet and Henry and no, I didn t have to look that up and can vividly recall their adventures These books call to the adventurous spirit in all children I wanted to set off on my own, live off the land I could picture mys [...]


  • My second grade teacher introduced me to the Boxcar Children and I fell in love with this series immediately It s the story of the orphaned Alden siblings who live in a boxcar They re extremely resourceful the type who would make a pie by gathering birdseed, picking some random berries, sweetening them with a sugar packet one of them lifted from the school cafeteria, and baking it in a makeshift solar oven made from rocks and recycled tin foil That s how the Aldens roll, y know Oh, and they took [...]
