A treehouse shows up in Jack and Annie's backyard with books inside of it. Magically they are transported back to the age of the dinosaurs when looking at a book. This engaging adventure book is a hit for many students and it throws in facts throughout the story while Jack and Annie are exploring. Not only are students taken on an adventure with Jack and Annie, but they learn about dinosaurs and the different time periods along the way. Great beginner chapter book with illustrations that add to the comprehension of the book.
