5.0 out of 5 stars Journey to Childhood, November 6, 2012
This review is from: The Boxcar Children Mysteries Box Set: Books One Through Twelve (Kindle Edition)
Recently I journeyed back into those sweet days of childhood by re-reading L. M. Montgomery's "Ann of Green Gables" series. While my children are grown and gone and have been for quite awhile, I do have grandchildren now and find myself opening all the old favorites and finding all the new ones to read to them. I grew up with books and music . . . all kinds of books and all kinds of music . . . and I still have a passion for these things. I'm not sure what made me think of the Boxcar Children but the thoughts brought me even further back to fourth grade and a school library in Cincinnati, Ohio where I read through many and many a more books with an unquenchable thirst. I suppose at that time my library hours were public education's way of dealing with "gifted children" . . . for me it worked. With my natural curiosity, an excellent library, and an even more excellent librarian, my fourth and fifth grade years were special ones. I grew up in a military family, moved more times than I can count and attended an amazing variety of schools. I have haunted libraries and bookstores, ended up with a two bachelor's degrees because I wanted to take every class possible in college and still I read on. Boxcar children? They were a lesson in self sufficiency and security in the midst of the ambiguity of childhood.
