The children of Stoneybrook were participating in the program: Pens Across America. This pen pal program connected them with Zuni children all the way in New Mexico. Though all the children enjoyed hearing from their friends, they soon get news that the school of the Zuni's burned down, along with a few houses. Dawn Schafer, the narrator of the book, soon comes up with a plan to help out, later getting everyone involved in successfully donating to the pen pals. But can Dawn and the babysitters actually put up with all the involuntary donations and the elementary school celebratory sleepover?

Clean, though diabetes, divorce, and different cultures are mentioned. The first two are just background descriptions of some of the babysitters' lives, and the Zuni culture isn't pictured in the stereotypical Native American way.
