    Green metal frogs, brightly-colored pinatas, and stolen diamonds all come together to create "The Clue in the Recycling Bin." The Arden children are at it again, playing amateur detectives. Come enjoy this story as they learn what it means to be going green at the new local recycling center and end up finding a thief in it's midst. See how they work together to gather all the pieces of this puzzling chain of events to end a string of month-long crimes, including a diamond heist.

Children's literature is not usually a genre that I review but this turned out to be a nice little break from what I have been reading. I would like to do a lot more children's fiction since I have a 9 year old grandson who loves to read and two young granddaughters who I hope will also get in on the act in time. This story is part of a long series from this author and I am definitely going to have to look for some more! I would highly recommend this book to anyone that is searching for a good children's fiction series. I seem to have a harder time finding good reads for young boys this age, so these seem perfect! This book was kindly provided to me by Open Road Publishers for my honest review.

    I can’t believe that there are over 100 Boxcar Children novels published and they’re still coming. I’m not sure why this surprises me, but it does. Maybe it’s the fact that I read these novels when I was really young and there were new ones at that point in time. Add in almost twenty years on top of that and I don’t think I could name a children’s series that’s still going strong. A while back I re-read the first Boxcar Children novel and was taken aback by the time warp.

Maybe it’s the fact that I read these novels when I was really young and there were new ones at that point in time. Add in almost twenty years on top of that and I don’t think I could name a children’s series that’s still going strong. A while back I re-read the first Boxcar Children novel and was taken aback by the time warp. Reading this novel, I was surprised at how modern it was. Sure, a book needs to adapt from decade to decade in order to stay current but with this novel, even though that’s present, it was nice to see the juxtaposition of the modern with the older roots. The thing that I love about this series is that no matter what time it’s set in, it’s still timeless and it teaches good life lessons. Manners aside, this one is focusing on recycling and being good to the earth. Sure, for today’s youth (a lot of them anyways) this is never going to be the type of novel that they’re going to go for (though they could probably benefit from reading these novels). No, today it’s all about wimpy kids and weird anime things. But those are the times. Oh how they change. Personally, I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this novel but I do appreciate the opportunity to read it. It’s a nice break from other novels since it takes no time at all to actually read and it’s fun to relive my childhood novels. But Benny annoys the living sense out of me and the only character of the four main ones that I can stand for long is Violet. I’m giving this book a 5.5/10. My thanks to netGalley and everyone who made it possible for me to read this novel.

    Veteran mystery solvers Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden are back in the Boxcar Children series latest book, The Clue in the Recycling Bin. Growing up, I couldn’t get enough of the boxcar children. They gave me my first taste of mystery (a genre I’ve been hooked to ever since). When I saw this newest installment, I just had to read it. I wanted to see if they were as good as I remembered. They are better! Granted the mysteries are easier for me to solve now, but I notice so much more than Veteran mystery solvers Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden are back in the Boxcar Children series latest book, The Clue in the Recycling Bin.

I wanted to see if they were as good as I remembered. They are better! Granted the mysteries are easier for me to solve now, but I notice so much more than I did. For example, its values. Through the Aldens, young readers are taught respect, hard work, responsibility, and much more. The valuable lessons in the series are as ageless as its four main characters — that somehow haven’t aged a bit from that first book that came out long before I was even born! The Clue in the Recycling Bin maintains that legacy. This novel explores the importance of recycling and protecting the environment by using fewer natural resources. Even as an adult, I am still a big fan of this series. Parents can comfortably give these books to their children and know they are in good hands. I strongly recommend The Clue in the Recycling Bin to all young (or young at heart) mystery readers out there. Happy reading! Review copy provided by publisher.

    Recycling is important, y'all. The kids figure this out when they help. And of course there is a mystery, duh. This one sparkles!

    One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)

    For grades 2-5. I'm not a fan of the series but its a good early chapter book and I like the fact it incorporates recycling into the story.
