Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-6

These easy chapter books have strong messages about community service and volunteering. In The Empty Room , Connor and Shayla's parents take them to work on a Habitat for Humanity house, and sulky Connor discovers that he's working alongside a future occupant. In the second book, two boys discover why a teammate always misses soccer on Wednesdays-he volunteers at Kids Against Hunger. Appendixes include discussion questions, writing prompts, and more information about the featured charity. Large, often full-page black-and-white illustrations in a cartoon style appear throughout. Despite the strong messages, the stories are not preachy or didactic. They might work in libraries where community service is promoted, particularly for reluctant readers.-Debbie Whitbeck, West Ottawa Public Schools, Holland, MI
