Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

The next book in the New York Times bestselling I Survived series will place readers right in the middle of the deadly Joplin Tornado of 2011.
The 2011 Joplin tornado was a catastrophic tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri in 2011. It was part of a larger tornado outbreak in the spring of that year and reached a maximum width of nearly 1 mile during its path through the southern part of the city, killing 158 people, injuring over 1,000 and caused damages amounting to a total of $2.8 billion, making it the costliest single tornado in U.S. history. Lauren will bring her signature intensity to this distinctly American natural disaster, placing a young boy in the middle of one of the deadliest tornado to strike the United States since 1947.

   Solid Series to Complete 3rd Grade Book reports
Great read for 3rd graders. This book is also great for children, adults and anyone who can read. This story deals with the Joplin Tornadoes in a very neutral and child-friendly way, yet without sugar coating anything, Tunick said. I'm thrilled that the book was read to my 3rd grade son. He is a sensitive kid and doesn't like Goosebumps stories, so I was worried that this might scare him and we'd be having bedtime problems. He was not scared and asked a lot of questions, said Blair. Appropriate content for 2nd graders, too, if their reading level is there. We have had a lot of luck with the I Survived chapter books, even though we were in 3rd grade. It's a solid go-to series, even if the fourth book is not as good.
   It is a good read, especially for the kids
This was well written, and I recommend it to anyone who reads it. We live in Galena, mentioned in the book, and spent countless hours cleaning up and restoring. The only thing I noted is that the writer referred to Joplin as being in Southeast Missouri, when actually it is Southwest. She also mentioned that the pharmacy chain did not come to Joplin until after the tornado. It's great to see the kids reading, especially since school is out. The subject was a sensitive one, especially after seeing the trauma first hand, but she did a great job being realistic, said Dr. Goin.
   Excellent seties for young adult readers
Newcomer Lauren Tarshis has done it again. She manages time well over a decade to write books about true events that are educational without that being obvious to the young reader. They are engaging and relevant to the thought process of the average 9-year-old, and that makes them an excellent choice for young readers, too. Ours was a reluctant reader until he discovered this series, and now we cannot slow him down!
   I have a child who doesn't enjoy reading. These books are one of the exceptions
My daughter doesn't enjoy reading. Only a handful of Harrison's books are considered classics. The fifth and sixth graders at Fairview Middle School in Manassas are excited about the new books. Like the book, the main characters are usually boys.
   Great book
The book was recommended to me by a friend of the family. In fact, she read it in one sitting. She loved it, the show's creator and executive producer said. She was enamoured with the plot and when she finished reading, she looked up more facts about the tornado. I love the series and how it piques the interest of the kids to learn more about the event, he said.
   This is a good book
What I think readers would enjoy from this book is the survival and how the main character Narrates the whole story, Hughes said. The book I enjoyed because I like how the main character narrates the whole disaster and his way of explaining it to the reader. I felt sad for the city of Joplin and what people went through and how every town has to go through after a tornado, Graham said.
   Okay read
Didn't keep my attention, he said. I grew up in tornado country and took shelter many times, but this book just didn't cut it.
   I Survived Joplin Tornado...
It was a good read, said Pauley, who also co-chaired the inquiry. This book is a quick read, easy to understand. I particularly liked the author's story, time line, and safety tips at the end. Highly recommend.
   Great for 8 year olds!
My son has a crush on the books. He is a gifted kid and reads well on a 6th grade level, Weinshall said. He likes non-fiction and a bit of drama, so I think these are great reads. They're also a couple dollars cheaper on Amazon than at my local store.
   I Survived is a fascinating series for any reader!
My daughter is a struggling reader at 10 but is fascinated with reading about true events especially with pictures. She has a soft spot for the I Survived series so it was a must. Even though we were only a short drive from Joplin, Mo., we couldn't help but wonder what it must have been like to be caught in the tornado.
