I loved reading The Boxcar Children so much that I once created a shoebox diorama version of my own boxcar, chock full of pine-needle beds and a swimming hole outside the car. Unfortunately the diorama did not withstand the test of time.
Fortunately, however, this little gem has. Last fall we came across this photo of a Bloomington, Indiana classroom’s real-life interpretation of Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny’s boxcar home.
So we are wondering, do you have any boxcar photos?? We would love to see all the dioramas, life-size boxcars, every and any interpretation, large or small. Send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or link them to our Boxcar Children Facebook page.
