A great book for older elementary age children! Great plot with little shots of education sprinkled in everywhere. ( )

Summary: This novel is about a brother and sister that find a list of things they need to do in their Magic Tree House. During their mission in this book they attend school at a place in the prairie. The siblings save the school children and the teacher from the twister by instructing them to get into the cellar under the carpet.
Critique: Still a huge fan of the Magic Tree House books. They are easy reads with lots of history embedded inside.
Craft Elements: Perfect series for new novel readers that are looking for something at a good pace and easy to read.

This book, like other Magic Treehouse books, supports enthusiasm for reading as a tool for learning and experience.
I would use it in my classroom as a hook for reluctant readers, and as an example of taking notes as you read (something one of the main characters does throughout the books). ( )

I remember reading this book as a child and really enjoying how Magic Tree House books take the reader back in time. I learned a lot of history from reading this series and this book had a very intriquing storyline and great characterization. It also had great figurative language for a child's book.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679890696, Paperback)

In book 23 of the Magic Tree House, award-winning author Mary Pope Osborne's popular young adventure series, siblings Jack and Annie travel back to American pioneer times. Their task, assigned by mysterious Camelot librarian Morgan le Fay, is to find "something to learn." When their magic tree house alights on a Kansas prairie in the 1870s, Jack and Annie quickly find a one-room schoolhouse with classes in session. Something to learn! After an all-too-brief school day, the two return to the tree house with their mission completed. But wait: "In the distance, twisting black clouds had dropped out of the storm clouds. They swirled into a funnel shape." A twister! And the young teacher and students in the school don't realize there's a storm cellar under the floor. Jack and Annie must brave the howling winds to return and save their new friends.

Osborne's insatiable devotees will devour her latest adventure story, following Civil War on Sunday, Revolutionary War on Wednesday, and all the other titles in this exciting series. What better way to learn about history than to travel through time and space, experiencing it firsthand? (Ages 6 to 9) --Emilie Coulter
