" 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.

" Pretty good audiobook. I like learning about disasters, and I don’t really care if this is a kid’s book. Audiobooks help me at work, and this was a good story. Never heard of the Children’s Blizzard before, so I learned something new " said.

" This is the first of this series that I've read, and I thought it was great. The topic is compelling, the characters are well developed in a simple way, and the history intertwined is excellent. I read this with a student I was tutoring who is a slightly lower reader, and he found it engaging and accessible. " 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.

" Read this book with the kids at bedtime. It was great! Lots of action and edge-of-your-seat twists! We all loved how the book ended and it gave us great opportunities to have engaging discussion about choices, leadership and history. It was a little scary at times but we all loved it! (Some of us just aren’t snake fans - ha!) definitely recommend for family reading or youth who like adventure! " said.

" Not a bad story, but as I've found with the other I Survived story that I've read, the climax ends rather abruptly without much explanation. I enjoyed the story and the history behind it, but everything feels really abrupt and rushed. In fact, I found myself enjoying the history lesson in the back of the book more than the actual story. It's not bad, I just didn't feel particularly attached to anyone or anything in the story before it ended because I didn't have time to care. " said.

"I found I Survived: The Children’s Blizzard, 1888 particularly interesting because it takes place in my area and I read it on the day of an April blizzard. Like in the book, the temperature rose to 50-60 degrees, and then the next day the winds picked up and it rained, hailed, rained, sleeted and then began to snow. It’s not an easy place to live and this book made me so grateful for modern conveniences! Children will enjoy it, too because it has a lot of action and perilous situations. Overall, this is one of the best I Survived books in the series (and it was fun to see an organization in my town thanked in the back of the book!)" said.
