    Morteana: Children who love magic and mystery are likely to love Scooby and the gang just as much as Jack and Annie. Any book in the series will do.

This book is about being in the amazon. They discovered that the tree house was magical. Learning about different things in the amazon can be very interesting, but fun. ( )

I absolutely love this series, Mary Pope Osborne is a genius in my opinion. These books could grab any child's interest depending on what they are interested in. This one is one of my favorites because i love the adventure that Jack and Annie go on in this one. Jack and Annie are siblings that go on awesome adventures through their treehouse. The text is filled with different text features that grab the readers attention, also the illustrations are very helpful. Illustrations in a chapter book is always refreshing to see. Kids want a break from reading straight text, and the illustrations in this chapter book are very detailed and help show images of where Jack and Annie are. The message of this book was to be friendly to everything, and anything. ( )

Although this book has a lot of informational facts on the amazon, it is a modern fantasy. This book leads Jack and Annie on yet another adventure. They travel through their tree house, taking them to paces they've never imagined going. While in the Amazing they encounter many crazy things. They are placed in the canopy of rainforest 150 feet from the ground, grab a snake while trying to sing from vine to vine, and encounter many other animals that they seem to be afraid of.

In my opinion, the book "Afternoon on the Amazon", a part of the Magic Tree House series, was a really great chapter book for young readers. One thing I liked a lot about this book was that it does include some pictures. This is great for students who are transitioning from picture books to chapter books. While the pictures are in black and white, they are very detailed and help the student to visualize exactly what is happening on that page. I think this is a great learning tool as well. If the reader is learning about different environments, the pictures of the amazon and the animals Jack and Annie encounter really help them see what the environment looks like and to picture those animals. Another thing I liked about this book was that it was part of a series. I read these books when I was younger, but didn't remember a lot about them. Apparently a character named Morgan is introduced in previous books and is under some sort of spell. Jack and Annie have to collect artifacts from the different places they visit in order to free Morgan from the spell. This really motivates readers to read the series so they can follow the story line and see all of the adventures Jack and Annie go on. A final thing I liked about this book was the fact that the text was large and broken up well. This would really help a young reader to focus on the words and the actual content of the story. The illustrations are not a distraction and the book really has a chapter book feel that will get reader accustomed to how chapter books are set up. The big idea of the story was Jack and Annie's adventure through the Amazon rain forest and to work together to complete a goal. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! I like the book because it was informational. The story provided many facts about the Amazon and educated the readers about different animals in the Amazon, as well as its different parts. For example, the text discusses the different layers included in the Amazon. I also like the book because of the plot of the story. Even though the book provides facts for the readers the author provides the facts through a narrative story. The story is about and brother and sister named Jack and Annie. They go on an adventure through the Amazon and along the way learn about the different aspects of the amazing place. I think the purpose of the book is to provide readers with an engaging way to learn facts about the Amazon. ( )

THis book is excellent fatasy book for us and younger children. It is fun, and we can find a lot of informnations from this book.

Setting: This is an appropriate setting for the story because Annie and Jack explore the Amazon rain forest before returning to their home in Pennsylvania.
