About the boxcar children's life At the beginning of the book they do not have any thing but them self's. Then they went to a store with no money but they went to ask if they could stay the night their. The people that worked their said okay but the workers only were going to keep them because they would make them work. But Jessie heard the workers say that but she also heard them say that they will have to get rid of Benny because he is too little. So Jessie woke up very quietly and told Henry and Violet so they left but they carried Benny because he is very noisy when he wakes up. So they all left when the workers were asleep.

So it was getting late and they were tired so they just slept on the ground beside a tree. When everybody was asleep Jessie wondered off and found a rusty, old boxcar. The tracks were covered in grass. So she new that it wont be leaving any time soon. So she went back to her brothers and sister and woke them up. They all went to the boxcar and Jessie and Henry opened the door. It was just perfect. It had just the amount room they needed. It had a nice brook too. They all really liked it a lot. So they decided that they would live their. They built beds out of pine needles and found a dump and took really nice things and used them. After a few weeks they had a pan hooked to two trees and over a fire so they could cook, they had a refrigerator made from a stone and half of the brook, they made a swimming pool by digging and filling it up with the brook water, they had dishes, they had a cloth to eat on like a picnic and, so much more. They were just fine. Henry even had a job. He worked for a man and did yard work for him. So the four children had money to buy food.
