Aunt Minnie and the Twister

Aunt Minnie and the Twister
(Ages 4-8)
Clarion Books, 2002
ISBN: 0-618-11136-0

Aunt Minnie and her nine nieces and nephews all live on a little farm in Kansas. They plant in the spring, they harvest in the summer, and in the fall they store their pickings in the root cellar for the winter. One dark and windy day, their routine is interrupted when a big funnel-shaped cloud appears in the sky. The kids are scared, but Aunt Minnie knows just what to do. Absolutely nothing can stop her–not even a twister!

“The creativity and strength of the family against the backdrop of disaster makes for a satisfying read. A perfect choice for intimate settings.”
