Night of the Twisters by Ivy Ruckman

Title: Night of the Twisters Author: Ivy Ruckman Genre: Realistic Fiction This book was based on a real life event (thus the genre) that occurred in Grand Island, Nebraska. Though this book starts out kind of slow, it truly picks up about 1/4 of the way through and you won't be able to put it down until you read that last page. While this book is a quick read, it will give young readers the suspension they need to keep them turning the pages. This would make a great addition to a unit on Nebraska, or even a science unit. The interdisciplinary possibilities of this book are endless. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. It should be a staple in all upper elementary classrooms. Chapter Book #2
