    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.

Another Magic Tree House adventure, this time Jack & Annie find themselves in the danger and beauty of the Amazonian rain forest. Lots of good animal and nature details. And a friendly monkey. Another worthy addition to the series. ( )

"Afternoon on the Amazon" follows Jack and Annie as they adventure through the Amazon rain forest after being transported there by their magic tree house. They start off exploring to look for an item, but encounter many animals that either help or hinder their journey. They eventually make it home with their item. This book is a good fantasy because it centers around a real place, using magic to get there. It is written convincingly to seem like it is real.
I would use this in a classroom to start a lesson about the Amazon rain forest. I would also use it to learn about different animals. This book is also a large series, so it would be good to tie in different books for different lessons to give it some continuity.
I think the media for this book's art is colored pencils. ( )

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.

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.
