Grades 1-3. The magic tree house follows a brother and sister duo as they embark on a mission through their magical tree house. These books, due to the series, can be used as introductory text to a number of topics.

This story is one of my favorite childhood chapter books about two siblings named Jack and Annie, who discover a mysterious and magical tree house filled with all different kids of books. As a child I really connected to this book because I have a little brother that I loved playing games with in our tree fort. Young children have a wild and active imagination and will enjoy reading about the adventures this sibling duo goes on together. The adventure is engaging and a little mysterious which holds the readers attention, This is also a great read because of the story’s relatability, as I stated before I have a sibling, and I am sure many other students have a brother or sister they play games with too. Another reason I liked the book was for its illustrations. This helps children to visualize what is going on in the story and take their imagination even further. The pictures provide the reader with another resources to help advance their understanding of the text. Although the author does not use too advanced vocabulary, but the students can infer or break down difficult words. ( )

Jack and Annie find a magic tree house filled with books about all kinds of places. When Jack wishes he could see a real life Pteranadon, Jack and Annie suddenly find themselves in an ancient world. This early fantasy chapter book follows the adventures of Jack and Annie through the land of dinasours including meeting the friendly Pteranadon, taking notes on a plant eater, and running from a T-Rex. In the end, they make it back to the tree house just in time to escape the charging T-Rex and wish to go back home. As Jack and Annie walk through the woods of Frog Creek, they decide not to tell anyone of their adventure even though they knew it was real.

This is the very first book in the Magic Tree House series. Jack and Annie find a tree house with lots of books inside. They open book with a lot of facts about dinosaurs. They look out the window and see a flying dinosaur which takes them back into a world when dinosaurs roamed the planet. At first they are very hesitant towards him, but soon they realize how nice he is. Jack is taking notes on the dinosaurs. Their new friend saves them from a T-Rex who almost ate them! This book is a fantasy. ( )
