Review from Shaun, aged 8, who read it:
I liked the good detail on the cover. The storyline got a big thumbs up from me...I've previously read Little House on the Prairie books, and I enjoyed Anna's Blizzard just as much. I loved it all. My favorite part was when John Jacob was rescued by Anna from the Blizzard. Top, the horse who stars alongside Anna, is my favorite character from the book. John Jacob is my next favorite because he and Anna are always up for adventures together.
Review from Michelle:
Anna's Blizzard is a delightful, well researched story of Nebraska prairie life, showing the hardships and friendships, as well as the lifestyle. I enjoy historical fiction, and this one is no exception. It's really accessible for middle school aged children and was a page turner throughout. The difference in life on the prairie, and historical changes, as well as the adventures this book offers make it a very interesting read. This would be an excellent book to read as an introduction into prairie life for children. I love the extra information in the back which gives detailed explanations of some of the history of the Prairie and lifestyle within the pages, along with illustrations. It's packed full of information and just the right size for chapter-a-night readers.
