    About "Gertrude Chandler Warner Charles Tang"

    1. Gertrude Chandler Warner Charles Tang

      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.

    1. I am 52 years old and usually read adult books. Recently I have been getting some young peoples books too. They are easy to read and very enjoyable. I love the Boxcar Children mysteries. In this story the kids go for a week to visit a dog training school where they train dogs for the blind. There is a shadow moving outside at night and they see it from their window. A mystery needing to be solved. Very good book!


    2. Lizzie: I love this book . The boxcar children are soooooo helpful. I think all boxcar help you learn I have learned a lot.I love learning about animals I love hearing the sounds. I love learning about guide dogs in this book.


    3. This is the best Boxcar Children Mystery book that I have read so far.At the beginning, there is a bit about seeing eye dogs. I already knew the stuff, but it was new to my son.Next is the mystery. In all the Boxcar books I have previously read, the mystery is quite easy to figure out, but the mystery in this particular book is more difficult to solve.


    4. I wish I had a dog like Ginger. She's a really good dog and I was so glad that she wasn't stolen. I really love all of Gertrude Chandler Warner's books (The Box Car Children books) because whenever I start one, I always really want to finish them. They're always such good books.


    5. I loved itI chose five stars because I thought it was a really good book. My favorite part was when Anna and ginger( the guard dog) got to go around town together and have get to know each other.


    6. HENRY, JESSIE, VIOLET, and BENNY go to a guide dog school and a man is trying to steal a dog. Her name is Ginger. She's a beautiful and good for a guide dog. Then a girl is going to buy Ginger. The man steals Ginger. And they get her back. I like that Anna gets ti keep Giner.


    7. The Boxcar Children set a great example of working together, sharing and doing the right thing. This installment in the beloved series also sheds light on the seeing impaired and the incredible animals trained to help them navigate their lives without sight.





    8. One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)
