My 7-year-old and 4-year-old both love this series. They are well written and I even enjoy reading them aloud to the kids. I think they find the adventures exciting and they even learn about history along the way...shhh, don't tell them that.:)
I read this book a long time ago probably when I was like 5. Anyways I loved this series! It was amazing from what I remember... I rated it so low because I didn't want good reads to think that I currently like this boom because that would mess up all of my recommendations! So that's why I rated this book so low!

I think this was an adventurous series full of informational places. For example, some of the things I need for school are in my magic tree house books! I use the magic tree house books for projects that have the same subject!! I am so thankful that Mary Pope Osborne made this series!! Thank you so much!!

My kids absolutely love these books! They beg me every day to read the next book to them. It's pretty great especially since our Alexandra's school is having a goal to have every student read (or be read to) for 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. For every 100 minutes the student reads they can enter their name into a drawing to win a bike. 4 bikes are being given away at the end of the year. It's not so much the bike that excites me but the fact that Alexandra and Zachary are enjoying reading boo...more

I work with kids and getting them to read is hard. An even bigger and harder challange Is getting them to enjoy reading. I have always loved kids books and i found my self enjoying these book a little too much .I bought the series for the class and i would read a chapter a day for them. Soon after the kids were buying or checking out there own copies because I was to slow for their liking. the companion books are also great kids and adults will enjoy and learn from this amazing series.
We moved to Georgia for about six months in 2005. I spent a lot of time with my mom because we lived in an apartment and I didn't know very many other kids. We discovered this series and I loved them. My mom would read about 3 of these books to me every week. When I got into 1st and 2nd grade I read a lot of them again on my own.
Read these books as bedtime stories to my eight-year-old sister. She got more excited about reading than I've ever seen her before! I was kind of upset by the fragment sentences and periods where there should be commas, because it lets developing readers get used to bad grammar. Otherwise, these books are awesome!
The kids and I have really enjoyed these books. Even Josh gets into them. They are very short chapter books that are great for reading alone for the older kids, but fun for reading together for the little kids. They incorporate historical information that makes learing about the past fun for kids.
These books were amazing. I like them because each adventure was so awesome. I loved it when I found out which place I was going to go to. It was fun to get to go to Hawaii for free! I liked it when they went to the twister. The Twister on Tuesday was my favorite book.

Great reading for kids ages 4-8 (give or take). Fun for parents to read TO them, or for kids to read themselves. I actually learned several factoids about history and events from reading these books with my kids. There are over 30 books - so borrow from library.
