The Magic Tree House books are always good to add a sense of adventure to a kid's reading. They also teach lessons throughout the book in almost hidden ways so it makes learning facts fun. This book, Jack and Annie go to the Great Plains and meet a Native American tribe and learn about their culture.

You got a little nervous around the Spirit part, until you realized it was a good 'un, not a bad 'un. ( )

Buffalo Before Breakfast


One morning Jack and Annie's dog appeared as their mother was cooking breakfast for them and their grandmother.Jack and Annie went to the tree house with the dog Teddy an were transported to the Great Plains, this is where they could find a gift from a prairie blue. Annie and Jack met a young Native American boy who took them to his tribe.While with the Lakota tribe Jack and Annie learned how they hunted, what the jobs for the boys and men were. They also learned that the women of the tribe made clothes and cooked while the men hunted. Annie and Jack were given a feather at a camp fire then the next morning Jack and Annie used the tree house to return home, where they hugged their grandmother.


I thought this was a good book, I remember reading the Magic Tree House series when I was in second grade. The setting was the Great Plains with the Lakota tribe. The character of Annie was brave and showed little fear, Jack was not as brave as Annie but impressed the grandmother with his horse skills. The book did a good job at showing how the Lakota tribe lived. How they hunted, as well as their beliefs before their land was taken by white settlers.

Extension Ideas:
1.The book can introduce students to a unit on Native Americans or the
Lakota tribe.
2.The book can show what the jobs of the men and women of the tribe were.
3.The book can teach students what the Native Americans did with the
different parts of the buffalo.
