"What is so interesting about author Brouwer's Justine McKeen books is that they are well-researched and offer websites for further reading into the issues and ideas his characters bring up...Children are interested in the environment, and the characters Brouwer creates are engaging and smart. Children will enjoy reading how the children cooperate to solve problem and share information to find solutions. The extra reading websites offered can help teachers, parents or students to learn more about specific parts of the book."
