    One thought on “The Chicago Fire”

    1. I recently went to Chicago and herd about the fire but didn't know anything about it so when I found this book I wanted to learn more about it. When I started reading a person mentioned in this was named Daniel Sullivan witch intrigued me a bit more. I would recommend this book to people who want to know more about Chicago and or go to Chicago. If you are interested in fires here is a book for you.

    2. This book seems easy for a Level S. It is great, however, for a 1 day read. This could be used to assess basic recall of facts. The book is very straight-forward yet interesting to many kids. Again, it's short!-Susan
