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.

This is a fantasy book about siblings, Jack and Annie. In this particular book, they travel back in time to the Prarie in the 1800's. This book really lets the reader use their imagination and go on the journey with Jack and Annie. Jack and Annie visit a one room school house. They meet a school teacher, a burly, and some really fun kids. Jack and Annie spot a twister! They hurry to tell the school teacher. They were just in time in telling her. Everyone was taken to safety. ( )

I liked this book for two reasons. One reason I liked this book was for the way it was written. The author sneaks in a lot of facts about pioneer life throughout the book. She does this through Jack reading and taking notes from his book. The author also added a couple "more facts" pages at the end of the book in case the reader wanted to know more about pioneers, twisters, or pioneer school life. Another reason I liked this book was for the plot. The plot of the story is very well organized and it keeps the reader wanting to read more. I think that this makes the book very engaging. Overall, I think the message of this book was that if you don't succeed the first time, to keep trying no matter what. ( )

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
