This book was so cool! I had never seen a chapter book that was both a fictional story with dialog and characters, and included a large amount of informational facts. I really like that this book gives you the time throughout the read so the reader knows exactly what is going on and when. This chapter book really stood out to me. This would be a great book for students who want a fictional story book but factual and educational information.

This is an informative story about life in the prairie. The story attempts to be exciting, with the impending danger of a tornado, but it just didn't really hold our girls' interest. We read it quickly, but I could tell they were a bit bored. Oh well...I thought it was interesting.

Neither a good fiction story nor a good non-fiction ecological essay. Instead it tries to be both in alternating paragraphs and succeeds at neither. Sorry - intentions were good, but it was soooo boring. Had to pitch it half-way in.

This book is about how a kid named Henry Rush takes pictures in the praire and does all the evendures like there was as tornado and he ran aside the animals like ox,spiders,chipmunies,and all other animals. carson

An interesting book - it created its story from a young boy's adventure into the wild to gather unique photographs of the animals there.

So quiet, with hardly a human voice in it. Perfect pacing, beautiful drawings to complement terse and economical prose--loved it!
