Although on the surface, ?The Big Box? may appear to be a story about three children who had misbehaved and were sent to their rooms without dinner, it is really much more a book to inspire deep thought about our society and how children are being raised, controlled and discarded. It demonstrates how blatant consumerism and products attempt to substitute for love, attention and real life experiences. This is a great book to promote a deep critical discussion among teachers, parents and the youth themselves that can begin to pose serious questions and construct new alternatives. The book brings into question the concept of ?freedom? and what it means to be free and who is in fact free. The reader must consider how often this society ignores the real needs of its youth and why so many young people are being criminalized and incarcerated? What can we all do to change this? What does the "Big Box" represent for each of us?
