Review quote

"Tim Gregory narrates this touching prequel to The Boxcar Children series. Gregory's narration is complemented by numerous sound effects, such as the family dog barking and the family cow mooing, which assist in adding levity and conveying aspects of the Alden family's life on the farm. Gregory's lively narration brings out the personalities of the individual children, evoking the joy and ingenuity of their activities and interactions with one another. Through his controlled timing, Gregory also communicates the children's vulnerability and heartbreak in this tender story about treasuring love and family."
