This is a great book about a boy named Ben and his sister who know that a woman is living in a box near an air vent in the city during wintertime. As the book progresses, Ben and his sister start to lend the lady in the book some food and clothes to help her out. When a man at the corner store demands that the lady in the box leave, Ben's mother convinces the store manager to let her stay. Ben and his family then volunteer at a soup kitchen after their experiences with the homeless woman.

Backer uses various techniques to delineate the tone of every scene, sometimes loosely sketching a detail in a thick application of oil paint, sometimes using small, dense flecks to depict snow and the frigid isolation of the conditions outdoors.

It is wintertime in the city and freezing cold, but not everyone is inside and warm. Ben and his sister Lizzie know that there is a lady who lives outside in a box over a warm air vent. The children worry about the kind-looking lady, and begin sneaking food and clothes out of their apartment for her. Gently told and powerfully illustrated in rich hues, The Lady in the Box deals candidly with the issue of homelessness.

This book is a JEWEL! I wish it was still in print. I'm so grateful to own it. I read it to my 1st and 2nd grade class every year before winter break. It presents a very serious topic in a way so kids can relate to it. I get a big box and the kids get in it. We discuss the many problems one would have if a box were your home. Everyone gets a healthy dose of gratitude.

this was a fantastic little book that told a great story. I used it in church when we were learning about homelessness. it was a great way to introduce a tough topic to our kids and they totally got it. well done with beautiful illustrations, this little story handled a mighty big societal problem in a delicate but very real way. loved this book, will use for years to come to teach compassion and empathy to my kids, toward those who are less fortunate.

We were discussing GIVING in a Sunday School lesson. One of the older girls (10) mentioned this book. My son was just in kindergarten and his class was starting to discuss giving back, and they were collecting Pennies for Peace. He didn't see the point in it all. I bought this book, and although it was exactly what his class was doing, it was a great, age-appropriate way to bring up the discussion of homelessness and taking care of others who are less fortunate. I think it would be appropriate for any age 5-12yrs.

This book is a lovely story about how children can be a vehicle for change in the world. I used it in my kindergarten class as an introduction to a service learning project for a homeless shelter in our community. My students responded well to the book, and the project was a success.
Awesome book! And message!
