5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition -- Love it! 5 Mar 2011
By G. McAllister - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The kindle version of this box set was a great find. It is much cheaper than buying all the kindle books individually. If you're not sure your kids will like it, download the free sample. It is plenty long to get your kids hooked on the story. The publisher did a great job on the kindle formatting. The illustrations are crisp and clear and look great on the kindle screen. I've been reading a few chapters each night to my 4-year old before bed. He always wants me to keep reading. I love that there are 12 books to ensure this set will last for a couple months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Magic Treehouse! 21 Jun 2011
By HKB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
My almost 9 year old son surprised me tonight by saying that he likes the Boxcar Children better than the Magic Treehouse, which he has read the whole series and really enjoyed. I appreciate that the main characters are nice kids, they look out for their brothers and sisters, use their heads and have great values. The Kindle edition is great, good price, only wish they would have more sets for beyond book 12! Both of these series have helped my very active, sporty kid to love reading! These books have also worked well for kids who are studying English as a second language, not a lot of slang that they are easy to understand while still keeping their interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 7 year old loves it as I did back then... 30 Aug 2011
By Robbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
I remember that I read these when I was a kid, so I downloaded these onto my Kindle my 7 year old daughter to read. Even though you'd think it's outdated, she still loves the stories. There are a few odd words, such as queer, that are no longer used in their previous context, but she hasn't asked for clarification and has an easy time reading them. I think this will get her through her entire 2nd grade school year for home reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loved the books, but have Kindle edition issues 8 Jun 2014
By poetnyouknowit - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have loved these books since they were the first chapter books I read in elementary school. I thought finding them for the Kindle to share with my nieces and nephews was fantastic!

The first three books in the set were fine; however, Mystery Ranch has several issues: When the girls first arrive in town where Maggie is picking them up, a few lines are missing as it goes straight from "Yes, I'm Maggie. I'm very glad to see you." to "I don't know," said Maggie. "Who was he?" Two paragraphs (30 words) are missing. Then in chapter 7 (The Boys Come), it skips from Jessie asking Aunt Jane if the boys can come to, within the same sentence in the Kindle version, the boys and Watch have arrived. Three paragraphs (81 words) are missing.

Disappointed in the accuracy of the Kindle version, and hope it will be updated and corrected. Will update review further if more issues are found.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glitch in the book 12 Oct 2013
By Scott and Daniel Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The books 1-12 of the boxcar children series are great. They have that thing that makes you never want to put it down. But the kindle edition has a problem(or glitch, as I should call it), sometimes the pages glitch out! I was reading the blue bay mystery and it skipped a page at the part where their walking along the beach. The glitch? When I turn the page, the next part doesn't make sense at all! Here is the words: "theirs another pool", said Henry. He (turns page) chapter 7 clues. At the spot where I put turns page I don't mean Henry was reading a book and their was a pool in the book. It leaves an entire sentence off! Before it was a different thing. If I was reviewing for an actual bundle that you'd buy at a bok store, it would have 5 stars. If it weren't' t for the glitch I would' t be confused. Oh well,still a great series. p.s. it stopped October 12, 2013. Hopefully I don't have another unexpected glitch.it didn't' t glitch today! Gonna boost it up one star. if it doesn't glitch two more times five.
