Their home, where the baby was sleeping, was gone. Fearing the worst, they began digging through the rubble. Eventually the little boy found his sister still sleeping in her crib. I think this book could be used to discuss point of view. While reading it, I assumed this book was being told by a little girl because of the title. I was very confused [...]


  • Based on a true story, One Lucky Girl recaptures the horror and devastation a violent and massive tornado will bring to an unsuspecting rural community.

  • This is a non-fiction story of a mother, father, their son and infant daughter. One Sunday, a tornado hits, and afterwards the family realizes that their trailer, which baby Becky was asleep in, is destroyed. While looking through the ruins the boy notices something in the grass, it is Becky’s crib, and she is still inside. Everyone is overjoyed. Becky is one lucky girl. This book can be used when discussing family structures or tornadoes.


  • This is a non-fiction story of a mother, father, their son and infant daughter, and what happens to them when a tornado hits their trailer. This story could be used in the classroom to teach students the difference between fiction and nonfiction, a unit on personal narratives, or even a unit on families and community building.


  • The story of a tornado that destroys a family home, but miraculously spares the infant that was sleeping inside. Simple text, but still entertaining.
