This book is an amazing book! I think it has a good lesson that shows you shouldn't try to be someone you're not. In the story Heather pretends to be her sister and it causes a lot of trouble for her. Also, I think Benny is usually the one to encourage the group when they give up. In the story when everybody says the posters are destroyed, Benny says "at least the good ones are inside". Lastly, I think the author did a good job because she made Benny seem suspicious. In the story, Benny is the first one to think the good is the bad, you never expected but Benny's right!
I would recommend this book to third and fourth graders who give up easily. Third and fourth graders who give up easily would like this book because in the story the boxcar children don't give up even though some people don't want them to help save the hospital. Also, the boxcar children don't give up even at hard times when they had to do things over and over again. Lastly, the book shows if you never give up you can achieve your goal. I love this book because it teaches two great lessons: be yourself and never give up!
