The book Revolutionary War on Wednesday in the Magic Tree House series is about a brother and sister who get magically transported back in time to the Revolutionary War. I like this book because it is historical, has a dramatic climax, and is fast-paced. The book discusses historical facts that occurred during the American Revolutionary War such as George Washington crossing the Delaware River. The book has a dramatic climax when the siblings have to find a way to prevent causing changes in history after being discovered. I also like that the action starts quickly. This helps children who do not like reading or who have a hard time staying focused with books that have too much detail. This book helps to teach children historical events about the Revolutionary War and keeps them interested by using lots of action. ( )

This book was a good read-aloud I used with my class. The students really liked it and it encouraged the students to continue reading the next books in the series. It gives good, accurate information in a interesting and fun way for the students.

Jack and Annie are two children who travel through time using a magic tree house. In this book they travel back in time to the Revolutionary War. While they are there they are searching for something they can send in order to solve a mystery. They run into continental soldiers who they end up motivating to keep on pushing forward.

Critique: I love the Magic Tree House books! What kid would not love to have a tree house that would time travel? Still to this day that would be awesome! This book allows children to be imaginative and gives them a hunger for a sense of adventure.

Craft Elements: You could use this book when teaching about the Revolutionary War. It gives a lot of historical references while making it fun for the students. At the end of the book it gives historical facts. It tell how the United States came into existence, what helped spark the Revolution, who lead the army, and other important facts as well. A theme of the story is to keep on pushing through no matter how hard the conflict becomes.

I liked this book for several reasons. The language used is on the level of an elementary school reader, so even though this is a historical fiction book, children are able to understand the history without not understanding the plot of this book. This book plot is set in the revolutionary war period and the author did a great job in keeping characters and setting realistic to the time period. The author pairs factual events with a fictional twist. The magic that Morgan La Frey gives to Jack and Annie is not a real event, but the adventure and the people that these characters meet are great for children learning about history. The main idea of this book is an introduction on an important event in american history and a story of persistence from the two children getting what they need for Morgan. ( )

If it's Wednesday, it must be Revolutionary War day. Jack and Annie, stars of the Magic Tree House series, are in for another adventure in their time- and space-traveling tree house. Mysterious magical librarian Morgan le Fay has set four new tasks for the siblings. Jack and Annie must find four special kinds of writing for Morgan's library in order to save Camelot, the ancient kingdom of King Arthur. In Civil War on Sunday, the pair traveled back to the 1860s to collect a list of rules ("something to follow") from famous nurse Clara Barton. Now they discover they must visit another war era: the Revolutionary War. Jack and Annie set aside their apprehension and soon they're spinning back through time to Christmas Day, 1776, on the banks of the Delaware River in Pennsylvania, where they encounter none other than the man on the dollar bill himself, George Washington! The children accidentally-on-purpose end up embroiled in the famous commander-in-chief's mission, where they not only play a part in convincing Washington to carry on with his patriotic duty, but also find the second kind of writing for Morgan's library: "something to send."

Award-winning author Mary Pope Osborne's young adventure series, The Magic Tree House, is immensely popular among children and teachers alike, promoting a fascination with history--and reading--no textbook can match. (Ages 6 to 9) --Emilie Coulter
