It had to happen: The kids are on a reality TV show. We've been cracking up as the times have changed but the kids are still the same age. They went from the original setting in the 1920s (the first book) to cell phones and reality TV (this last one). But some things never change - the cracked pink cup figures prominently in the this story? Spoiler alert: Would someone really hold the cracked pink cup hostage to win a reality TV show?!?!
We've listened to 124 of these Boxcar Children books now. (We do a lot of driving.) All in perfect chronological succession. Is there anyone else out there who's done that?
