McDonald does an excellent job of developing characters who reflect the 1970s, and keeping the action moving. In Changes , fifth-grader Julie has a new friend, who is deaf, and she runs for school president. In the second title, she takes a baby owl to a wildlife rescue center where she encounters bald eaglets and learns that these birds are an endangered species. In Journey , Julie joins her cousins on a wagon train in Pennsylvania, re-creating the pioneer journey in a Bicentennial celebration and collecting signatures to present to President Ford. Each book has occasional full-page paintings as well as spot art. Back matter includes historical facts and photographs pertaining to the events mentioned, such as DDT, inclusion for disabled people, and presidential elections. These books will hold students' interest.
