    Dear Readers of Chapter Books All Around the World, Do you like books that are partly fiction and partly nonfiction? Yes! Well then, you will love to read, "Twister Trouble," a Magic School Bus chapter book. I like this book because the author used real facts and made up a fiction story to go with the facts. Did you know? * That Tornado Alley goes through texts, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska? * Each year, there are about 1,200 tornados in America and almost half of them are recorded in Tornado Al Dear Readers of Chapter Books All Around the World, Do you like books that are partly fiction and partly nonfiction? Yes! Well then, you will love to read, "Twister Trouble," a Magic School Bus chapter book. I like this book because the author used real facts and made up a fiction story to go with the facts. Did you know? * That Tornado Alley goes through texts, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska? * Each year, there are about 1,200 tornados in America and almost half of them are recorded in Tornado Alley! * A tornado's color depends on the color of what it picks up. * Clouds can be charged with electricity. When the voltage gets high enough, electricity leaps from one place to another. * Lightning heats up air and makes it expand. Thunder is the sound of the air expanding. It was science time. Ms. Frizzle always wears something to do with the day ahead. Today, she wore a dress with all kinds of weather on it. The class was working on reports about weather for the Wild Weather Show that night. Everybody was almost done. "Into the school bus!" said Ms. Frizzle. Then the bus turned into a Magic School Airplane! "Today we are going to study weather." Ms. Frizzle announced. Screens appeared in front of the kids. "These are radar screens," said Ms. Frizzle. "They can tell you what the weather is like." Suddenly, in big, red letters, something appeared on the screens. It said, "STORM WARNING"! What will happen next? The pictures in this book are not in color. When I was reading this book, I couldn't picture the story in my head, but after a few pages, there was a picture that explained it better! Introduction: "Hi, I'm Tim. I am one of the kids in Ms. Frizzle's class. Perhaps you've heard of Ms. Frizzle. (Sometimes we just call her the Friz.) She is a terrific teacher-but a little strange." I would give this book 5 stars and a gold award because this book can teach you how to be safe during a tornado and it has a story with it to learn about the characters, while you learn about tornados.

    Twister Trouble by Anne Schreiber was published by Scholastics Inc. in 2000. It has 76 pages and I rated it a 3/5 because although I enjoy learning about the weather, it didn't seem as if enough enjoyment was out of the book and more facts then I wanted there to be. The genre is Non-fiction, the grade level is 2-3, the Lexile level is 520L and the Guided Reading level is a P. The summary of this book is that the gang all go on another adventure to see the different types of storms such as tornad Twister Trouble by Anne Schreiber was published by Scholastics Inc. in 2000.

The genre is Non-fiction, the grade level is 2-3, the Lexile level is 520L and the Guided Reading level is a P. The summary of this book is that the gang all go on another adventure to see the different types of storms such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, winter storms, and hurricanes.They are joined by Ms. Frizzles' 2nd cousin Ms. Mary who is a meteorologists. All the students were able to see what temperatures occur during these storms, what a front is, and what damage can be caused by the storms. The students were able to notice how the twister can change color and shape and the students also learned where Tornado Alley is. The students return to school and Tim can show everyone his Tornado in a bottle. My activity that I would show the class is how to create a tornado in a bottle. The instructions are found in the book, so I will project them and show the instructions to the class and I would get the materials for all the students. Students will follow the steps and create their own tornado in a bottle. The students would then write what they noticed in a quick paragraph. The CCSS that I would use would be 3-ESS2-1. Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.2.3 Describe the connection between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text. The graphical display would be an "I noticed" graph and the students would chart what they see with the tornado in a bottle.

TWISTER TROUBLE by:the magic school bus There is one special moment the author created so well that mad me think about what will happened if we had a twister what will we do in the united states.Well basically the kids wrote about twisters on thier first day of school.I thought that there was going to be a real twister in the beginning because i saw the was writing about twister and i heard them saw there will be a twister.The crazy moment was when the class was on a trip and they ran on to a twister it was close.The bus was in the middle of the road where the twister was coming at.The funny thing was they called 911.They tracked to see how far the tornado was away from them.So using mathamatics and science the tornado was 40-72 miles per hour.This tornado was 319-379 miles per hour. This reminds me of when my friend had a dream that the snow storm will be bad.But the funny thing was that day it start to snow afterschool all day.It was mad funny because she had started this snow ball fight and the wind blew her all the way across the street.The funnest part of this book was that they predicted and got caught in the middle the funnest thing was the girl my friend got caught in the middle. We predicted that the wind was about 30-60 miles per hour

The kids clean up everything they can and meet Ms. Frizzle's cousin Wendy Weatherby, who is a meteorologist and joins the class on their field trip.

With their original trip canceled, Ms. Frizzle has other ideas by going to the source. Dr. Weatherby takes control of the trip and directs the field trip about the education of tornadoes, clouds, updrafts, and other factors related to the creation of tornadoes. Ms. Frizzle's class also are educated on the differences between warnings and watches, but also the importance of the following safety while experiencing the inside of a tornado. When the class gets trapped in a tornado, they eventually find a way out and look for shelter. At the end of the trip, Ms. Frizzle's class finish up setting up their show and share their discoveries with their parents on the same day. I give this book only three stars since I did find the book to be quite informative to readers. I liked the book to some extent, but some of the content could've been explained better. It didn't have much enjoyment in the content explained, but some facts were useful to know and only a few illustrations that can create an issue of readers. Another issue is some information is inaccurate, but the main reasoning behind it has to be that it must be child-friendly. Overall, I did enjoy reading the book since it did bring back memories of wanting to study the weather as a career. For students, this book can be used as a way to use graphs and make a tornado in a bottle. This book gives a brief introduction to the concept of weather and shows that scientists can make discoveries by experiencing them out in the field. Of course, students and scientists have to follow precautioning measures, but they can also have fun while sharing their ideas with others.

    This is a Science Chapter book tie-in to the entertaining and educational cartoon show, The Magic School Bus, written by Ann Schreiber and illustrated by John Speirs, and focusing on tornadoes and windy weather. It mixes exciting narrative with interesting scientific facts about the subject, and creates a good balance which was highly appreciated by my six-year-old, with whom I read it (despite the fact that there are not that many illustrations, which can often be an issue at the moment).

While the series might not be my own first choice after this first sample, it is certainly not bad, and that is good, since I foresee more entries being read in the not too distant future.

    This book could be read during a weather science unit. It could also make students want to read more of the series.

    I think this book was very informal. I think that if I was on the trip it would be kinda scary but would be one of the best field trips ever.

    We've read all of the Magic School Bus picture-books that we can find and now we're working our way through the Magic School Bus chapter books, too. We just love the Friz and her class; the characters feel like old friends to us. This story takes us on a wild ride through wild weather events. It wasn't as riveting as I thought it would be, but on the whole, our girls liked it. We enjoyed reading it together and have put more MSB books on hold at our local library.

    A field trip with the Friz is always fun and exciting, and this chapter book series on the Magic School Bus is no exception. As funny and clever as the picturebook versions that follow the best science teacher ever, these would work great in an elementary school classroom (probably 2nd through 4th grade depending on what year teaches what scientific concepts).

    It was a little over the heads of my first grade class but for third or fourth grade it was terrific. I loved how they took included so many different aspects of the weather and tornadoes. Even though some of the material was over my students' heads they still loved it and they did learn a lot of different facts.

    There are lots of cool storm facts. Did you know that a tornado once riped ALL the walls of a store but didn't even TOUCH the food or shelves? That is cool! There are lots of cool storm facts.
