We have listened to the entire series and this is one of the best. It's one of our go-to's when we can't decide on what to listen to.

The Schoolhouse Blizzard, also known as the Children's Blizzard or the Great Blizzard of 1888 caught people completely by surprise and resulted in 235 fatalities, including several children in one-room schoolhouses. What made the storm so deadly was the timing, the suddenness, and the brief spell of warmer weather that preceded it. Lauren Tarshis will place a resilient 11-year-old character in the midst of this deadly blizzard, fighting their way out.

We have listened to the entire series and this one is the best. The combination of the story plot and the narration was perfect. My son (10) loved his voice so I searched for other books by him, (unfortunately they aren't for young ears!) We have listened to this one over and over.

When the Marquis de Lafayette ran off to join the American Revolution against the explicit orders of the king of France, he was a strong-willed 19-year-old who had never set foot on a battlefield. Although the U.S. Congress granted him an honorary commission only out of respect for his title and wealth, Lafayette quickly earned the respect of his fellow officers with his bravery, devotion to the cause of liberty, and incredible drive. Playing a pivotal role in the Revolution, he led his men to victory at Yorktown.

My son and I listened to this over a few road trips. It kept our interest the entire time and was just right for my 10 year old.
