Summary: Jack and Annie are at it again this time they are whisked away to the 1870s. While there they are in a schoolhouse and learn about the pioneers and their hard times. When they finally get back to the treehouse a twister is on it's way to them, they have to find the time to warn the teacher and students in the schoolhouse.
Review: The Magic Treehouse is another great series to get some reluctant readers interested in books. They have great history lessons in the without any thought about it. I love this book especially with the superb story line.
In Class: This book can be used to introduce westward expansion. It also is rich in vocabulary and can be beneficial for vocabulary activities.

" I like that this one included kids their age and that they became friends with those kids. It was still informative too. " said.

" During a twister, a storm cellar is the safest place to be. " said.

" This was the first introduction that my son and I had to these books. This one really grabbed our attention and kept us wanting to see what happens next. " said.

" Learned a small amount of pioneer, 1 room school house life. Not too much happened in this one. Didn't know some of the facts about twisters that are at the end though. " said.

" I really enjoyed this adventure that Jack and Annie went on back to 1870s. Mary Pope Osborne is able to throw in history into each book and allow the kids to learn while they are reading. As a reader, I was able to get insight into what the a schoolroom was like back then and how they went about their lives. A fun, but quick read with history throughout their adventure. " said.

" I loved the Magic Tree House series growing up so when I saw this book in the Little Free Lending Library, I had to read it.
 
It is the same fun, educational stories that I remember when I was a kid. This is such a great series. It is a good combination of fact, adventure, and friendship.
 
While it is book 23 in the series, it can be read as a standalone because the prologue pretty much catches you up on what's going on. But I am sure it is better if you have read the preceding books (I will have to be on the lookout for them).
 
I like that Jack and Annie had an actual mission to complete. From what I remember from the first few books, they just traveled through the books, which was interesting, but this is a good progression for the series.
" said.

"Jack and Annie travel to the Kansas plains during the pioneer days of the Nineteenth Century, where they visit a one-room schoolhouse in their search for a special piece of writing for Morgan Le Fay's library in Camelot.

They are welcomed by the teacher and her small class, but the oldest boy in the group is ill-tempered, and his anger grows worse when he feels shown-up by Jack quickly establishing himself as the best reader in the small school.

But the problems Jack is having are nothing compared to what Mother Nature has in store, as a twister roars across the prairie, taking aim right at the one-room schoolhouse.

This was a fairly straightforward story. The setting was nicely described and the subplot between Jack and the angry older boy took center stage until the weather mayhem really got started.

In spite of the danger of the tornado, the plot felt like it fell into place pretty easily. The result is a solid, though not exceptional entry in this series.

I read this with my nine-year-old son, and he was definitely interested and excited for the tornado scenes, but was less into the early chapters setting things up.
