I SURVIVED THE JOPLIN TORNADO, 2011 by Lauren Tarshis
Boys especially will like this latest in the I SURVIVED series for early chapter book readers.
Dexter, 11, has been invited to go along with a group of tornado chasers when they are caught by the deadliest tornado in 50 years. The exciting story presents a wealth of information about tornados, tornado chasers, preparedness and safety.
The reading level is about a 3-4th grade level. The story is exciting enough for 6th graders. Girls will like it as much as boys. It is scary enough to be thrilling, but also has a happy ending. Parents and teachers will like the information in the end notes.
4 of 5 stars
Great book for parent/child book groups
