This has been my favorite Magic Tree House book so far. I love that every book teaches in a fun way. This book answered all of Hannah's questions in regards to vocabulary... in a way that she understands. For example:

"If the killing does not end, they both face extinction."
Hannah asked "What's extinction?"
The very next sentence said "Extinction means that someday there may be no Indian tigers or rhinos left on earth."

"Are you a hermit?" Jack asked.
"Yes," the blind man said.
What's a hermit?" sa

Sam (8): What's your review? 5 stars. Really? Yeah. But Harry Potter got 5 stars too. How is that possible? Are you sure about that 5 stars? Yes. Fine. Why does this glorious book deserve 5 stars? I liked it when Teddy saved them. Really? Okay. Why else does it deserve 5 stars? That's all I can think of.

Mary (6): 4.5 stars. Okay. I don't think you guys understand the star thing. No, we do. Fine. Why 4.5 stars? Because I love Teddy. Teddy is cute. Really? Any other reason? Because they got their

Jack and Annie go on the 3rd of 4 missions to collect gifts and free Teddy the dog. In this outing, they go to India and meet many animals, including langurs (monkeys) who help them escape from a tiger and a python. Elephants give them a ride, and they see a rhino at the watering hole.

The tiger who chased them got caught in a trap and the kids free him. When he is free, he stalks them again!

Jack and Annie meet an old man, a hermit who gives them a beautiful lotus which has grown from stinky, dir

This one started off feeling very familiar. I felt like the monkeys were a re-play of their visit to the amazon and the elephant from their visit to Africa. Once we got to the tiger, however, this one definitely turned for the better. I loved what the hermit had to say about them saving the tiger: "you saved his graceful beauty--and his fierce, savage nature. You cannot have one without the other."

Understanding that everyone has both strengths and weaknesses seems like a fairly advanced concept

A really neat series of books, although you CAN read them individually, it's just nicer to read them in order to understand what is really going on. These series are chapter books my son and I sit and read it for about 30 minutes or so. Very interesting, keeping our attention. Just enough 'Science' to keep it educational but yet enough imagination in it to keep it fun too. Each book apparently will have a 'guide' to the two children in the book but to the reader-listener it will give History les ...more

I remember reading the Magic Treehouse series during Middle School, and they were always entertaining. I loved how they went all around the world, all throughout history, and you learned about different places and time periods as you followed your favorite characters through wonderful adventures. It was really cool. I recommend these books to your little adventurer. They are sure to not disappoint.

I picked up this book to read to my little boy after he recently started showing a lot of interest in tigers. It was really fun to sit down and read it with him. Even though he's only a year old, there were enough pictures for him to stay engaged. Plus, the pictures are very well-done, so he enjoyed looking at them while I read. I also like that there are storylines that carry over from one book to another, giving an extra payoff for the kids to keep reading and see how the story plays out.

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

This is the first book I read in the Magic Tree House series. I know many children that have read the series, now I am glad to have experienced a slice of it.

The book had excitement, peace, travel, natural history, and problem solving. I would read another. One thing I liked is that this was an interesting way of learning about another place, animals, and their habitat. I really liked the facts dispersed throughout the story and the additional facts at the end. The characters are likable, too.

Jack and his little sister Annie are two regular kids from Frog Creek, Pennsylvania... until they discover a mysterious tree house full of all sorts of books. From that point on their lives will never be the same again! They soon go on amazing adventures (plus children are learning bits of history and most don't realize it) as they travel through time with the help of the magic tree house. The chapters are short with pictures every few pages, making these books perfect for the beginning reader.

This book is about yet another adventure Jack and Annie go on, this time they have teddy with them as well. He is a dog. The magic tree house takes them to Africa to help the tigers. I enjoyed this book because like the other,I like the relationship the kids have and the excitement of having magic tree house. This book could be used at a middle school reading level. This book could teach them about how some animals are endangered and need help. It can teach them about how its important to take c ...more

Cute, as usual. Being an adult, I still think Annie's insane insight is totally unrealistic, but hey, it's the MAGIC Tree House series :)
I thought it was nice that the story focused on saving endangered species and nature.
Is this story, Annie and Jack travel to India. Two monkeys serve as their guide and they travel by elephant, learning about forest creatures as they go along and both the beauty and dangers of the forest.
Though some of the descriptions reminded me of the Amazon haha

This is a great series of books to get kids reading. Reading this one, I noticed a lot of things that kids could learn out of these books. For example, in this book, there were different animals they encountered in the forest. They looked up stuff about the animals to learn what they should know while they were around them. This book not only lets the kids reading it learn about different forest animals, but it also sends them the message that they can learn a lot from books if they use them. Al ...more

This book features the two main characters Jack and Annie on another adventure, this time in a forest of India. The two children are on a mission to receive gifts to free an enchanted dog. They ride elephants, rescue a tiger from a poacher, and even encounter a blind hermit.

Lil and I are working our way through the series. She learned two vocab words tonight as we finished this book. "Hermit" (I am most curious to see how this one will be used by her in context) and "extinction" which brought her close to tears. As much as it is not my favorite series I do like how much she learns (and seems to retain!).

Tigers at Twilight is the third in a miniseries where Jack and Annie have to find four gifts to help an enchanted dog. The dog they met on the Titanic and has since been following them through their adventures.

For their "gift from a forest far" they travel to a remote part of India where they befriend langur monkeys, ride on some elephants, get followed by a tiger and meet a swami.

It's a good introduction to the animals of the Indian jungle but like Lions at Lunchtime it fails to connect man's i
