" Pretty good for a kids' book. I appreciate this series because it takes frightening historical events and explains them to children in a not-so-frightening way. " said.

" My grandfather told me about the children’s blizzard while I grew up on the SD prairies. Most of what I read reminded me of what I already knew, validating this book’s authenticity. " said.

" This was a selection by the kids for book club. I know they’re going to love it, and Tarshis did a good job making the characters likable so that kids get the way the blizzard effects them. " said.

" A decent entry into the series, I felt that this book focused a little more on the lead up to the disaster than the actual disaster itself. " said.

" I really enjoyed this book. Having lived in an area where blizzards occur, it brought back memories. My students will enjoy reading this book. I can't wait to supplement it with her current story in Storyworks magazine about the locusts. Great read. " said.

" My first “I Survived” book - loved it. Has that fast-paced cliff hanger feeling that got me hooked on reading. (Nancy Drews were my gateway book.) *And* it’s historical—that much more interesting. Really looking forward to sharing this book with students. " said.

" The first chapter really catches your attention. I read it to all my fourth and fifth graders as they visited book fair this past week. Many of them are fans of the series and I wanted to make sure they were aware of this new one. The book immediately put you into the blizzard and then with chapter 2 walks you back four months. I like that technique. " said.

"This is a great addition to this series. I'd heard of this blizzard in other stories - especially the tale of the teacher tying her student together and getting them to safety. But I didn't know the details of this storm, nor did I know the many stories that could have been told.

I appreciated learning more to the history surrounding the time. Kids will be amazed to read about homesteading and surviving with sod houses. They'll be caught up in friendships and stories that will help them place themselves inside the book itself. I'm sure this book will be read as soon as I bring it into the classroom. It will likely pass from hand to hand.
" said.
