Genre:_____ This is a good book that talks about the revolutionary war but it is written for children. I see it as more of an upper level because it is a chapter book, so maybe like 4th or 5th graders. The book is about how Jack and his sister Annie go back in time to the war and talk to George Washington. They need to convince Washington to keep fighting! ( )

Jack and Annie are once again on an adventure of a lifetime. This time however, they have a special mission from Morgan, the librarian who the magic tree house belongs too. She needs them to find something to be sent. Jack and Annie land on the shores of the Delaware River just before General George Washington leads his men across the icy river to victory. First Jack and Annie hesitantly approach a camp sight and talk with some soldiers. After finding out Jack and Annie are from Frog Creek, one soldier gives them a letter to send to his children if he doesn't make it. Something to send! But instead of heading straight back to the tree house, the kids find their way into the boat of General George Washington himself. Jack used Washington's own words and his knowledge of the result of the ride to encourage Washington to keep going. As always, Jack and Annie soon find themselves warm, dry and safe back in the woods of Frog Creek, Pennsylvania. (Fantasy)

In this modern fantasy, two kids are traveling through time to save Camelot. In a note that was left for them, they were told that in order to save Camelot, they had to find four special writings for their library. They were looking for the first two, something to follow and something to send. So they are in the tree house, and it brings them to the time of the revolutionary war. They decided they were going to follow the writings from Clara Barton. Next they found something to send, which was a letter written by George Washington. They decided to go home after that, but they could not leave the mission that they were on with the patriots. When something happened, Jack pulled out the letter George Washington wrote and reminded him what they were fighting for. This caused George Washington to tell Jack thank you. When they finally returned home, they got a letter from Morgan telling them to come back tuesday. Then with a woosh, they were back home, and walking inside.

Summary: In this book, Jack and Annie are taken back to the Revolutionary War. They encounter George Washington and his soldiers on Christmas Eve. Washington is hesitant about leading his soldiers across the Delaware River because the weather is so bad; there is a terrible snow storm. However, even though Washington told the children not to follow, they crossed the river anyway. Jack and Annie told Washington that his attack was going to be successful and that he should pursue it, even though he was having hesitations. During their time spent with the soldiers, Jack and Annie were also able to learn how difficult it was being away at war, especially during the holidays.

Review: I thought this book was a great way to teach readers about the difficulties of war. I also thought the big idea of it was to teach the reader to never give up. At one point, Jack helped convince Washington how important it was to keep going, “even if things look impossible, you should keep going…” (59). I think the fact that Jack and Annie really pushed Washington to keep going shows the importance of not letting others give up. I think especially in a time of war, it is important to keep motivating others to keep going. This is a lesson that can be taken outside of war too because it can be put into many different parts of ones life. Overall, I thought this book was very informational and had different parts of the war that is important for people to learn about. ( )

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
