Comments for Twister on Tuesday (Magic Tree House #23)

Twister on Tuesday (Magic Tree House #23): 06/20/10

Twister on Tuesday cover art (Link goes to Powells)In Twister on Tuesday by Mary Pope Osborne, Jack and Annie are sent back to the plains in 1870 to find "something to learn." While there they learn about one room schools, sod houses and tornadoes.

Sean and I got the impression that Jack and Annie were back on the same plains area that they visited in Buffalo Before Breakfast. After we both read the book we compared and contrasted life on the plains for the Lakota and the pioneers.

The best part though was the tornado. It was nice to focus on weather instead of American historical figures. Getting trapped by a tornado is far more plausible and dramatic than a pair of elementary school aged kids helping out in a war.
