It’s not exactly the original boxcar children

On the cool side:
It teaches some survival knowledge which not many kid’s books do.

On the other side of the coin:
First, mushroom hunting is dangerous for the untrained. There’s a saying that you can be an old mushroom hunter or a bold mushroom hunter but not both.

Kids are impressionable. If a story they like makes something look easy they will probably want to try it. I would have focused on anything but mushrooms or had the counselors stop them from eating dangerous ones ; rather than having them stumble on safe ones.

However my biggest complaint about the newest Boxcar Children stories is the unexplained and unexpected time traveling. How did this family move from around 1930 to 2020 without getting any older?

If you are looking through the stories because you are feeling a nostalgic and wanting to hear something along the lines of the stories that you grew up with, this will likely miss that spot!

On the other hand, if you are looking to get your children to like reading, I can see how modern characters would be easier for today’s kids to relate to. And kids still like stories with kids who are left unsupervised.

Still it would help to differentiate the stories if the new authors would take credit in some way. Saying that this is by the original author with no caveats is a little confusing and misleading.
