This book, Sunset of the Sabertooth, is a huge hit in the third and fourth grade classrooms. A lot of students are really engaging in the Magic Tree House novels. This book for example, shows a lot of great detail and imagery for the students to unravel. I also think that the students love these books is because the characters are about their age and going through the same developmental changes, therefore, the students can relate to the minds of the characters in the novels. I would have my students create their own, Magic Tree House story about an adventure that they want to go on, or create an imaginary adventure. ( )

The story takes place in the era of the Ice Age, and the main characters are Jack, Annie, and the big sabertooth. The goal is for the kids to find four items for a character named Merlin. Jack and Annie run into cave people, and trade items for a coat. There adventure leads them to see mammoths, elk, reindeer, bison, and rhinos. At the end, a tiger charges Jack to kill him and he used a flute he was given to stop the tiger from charging him. The wooly mammoth helps the kids get back to their tree house back to safety. ( )

This is a great book to read to children. They love hearing all of the different adventures that Jack and Annie have together. Children learn all kinds of things from the Magic Tree House series that could benefit them in the classroom. ( )

Another "Jack & Annie" read aloud to my daughter. This time our heroes travel to Ice Age Europe and encounter Cro-Magnon people, a wooly mammoth, and a sabretooth tiger, all while wearing their bathing suits! Brrr...
This is another fun, well-written, and historically informative story for children and the grownups who read to them. ( )
