My six year old daughter loves this series and is reading it aloud to me.
I said in my review of "Sunset of the Sabertooth" that I loathe these books, so I'm not going to say it again here. Logan actually didn't like this one so much as it fed his already growing fear of dangerous wildlife. And I find that a lackluster story interspersed with a wooden main character reading aloud from a reference book isn't really the way I want Logan to get his facts. In a 67-page story, here is what we got:
--The Amazon rainforest is hot & steamy, has a lot of plants, and is made

As I always say, my 8 year old niece brought me the first 2 of these books to read. She loves them and she wanted me to read them too so we can talk about them. I find them fun and informative for kids about different time periods and different things around the world.

With book 5, I started reading them out loud to my dogs. (I know, you may think I am crazy - but they like them. Well one gets rather scared sometimes, but the other loves to listen). This one was way too scary for the one dog I h
The book, “Afternoon in the Amazon” is about a girl and a boy named Annie and Jack. They found a magic house to any where and they decide to go to the Amazon. They travel to the Amazon because they like the animals. When they get there they find a library with a woman inside. Her name is Morgan LaFay. She sends them on a journey to find four items. Throughout their journey they find some of the items. They find a boat and Annie sees a monkey. The monkey throws mangoes at them and follows them. T ...more
I think this book lends itself well to a unit study of the Amazon. You can use this as a jumping off point to study animals, geography, weather, etc.

My generic review for the Magic Tree House books -

We've loved them all so far. They are fun, easy to read and contain quite a bit of historical information. We use them as read-alouds, but most elementary/middle school kids could read them on their own.

It does have a touch of 'girl power' at the expense of making the brother seem a little dumb. Th

This is sixth in the series of books the Magic Tree House. Although it is a chapter book my son and I sat 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. Looking forward to reading some more.

This was wasn't disappointing after enjoying the first one as much as we did. Each book apparently will have a 'guide' to the two children in the book but to the reader-listener

The Kiddo continues to bring home Magic Treehouse books from his school library. This one was particularly fun for us because the day after we read it, we got to spend some time in a real tropical rain forest (the Can Gio Mangrove reserve, just outside of Saigon).

As for the book, it was nonstop action from the moment the kids arrive in the rain forest. They encounter all of the traditional "scary" rain forest creatures, and basically bounce around from one mode of imperilment to the next until t
I read the Swedish translation, where the kids are called Viktor and Hanna. In their magical tree house they can open a book and travel to any adventure they point to. In this book they go to the Amazon rainforest where they come across different dangerous animals. This series is popular at my school library, and I guess it's fun to read after getting past beginner chapter books. I personally found the story a bit boring as there are no real interactions. Viktor and Hanna simply run from problem ...more

A friend got us into these books about 4 months ago and we've probably read 15-20 or so in the series since then. I just chose this one to review because it was one of Eric's favorites.

Eric is 4 1/2 and it feels like we have read every picture book under the sun to him. He likes these because they have some pictures, follow a similiar pattern for each book, are exciting but not too scary, and he learns about new places. We do them as a read-aloud before bed. I would guess he'll be able to read t

The Magic Tree House Afternoon in the Amazon is very exciting. They have to go to the Amazon
to get something for Morgan the M person. The amazon is A dangerous place to be. Jack and Anne are the main characters in the book. Jack and Anne have to go to the Amazon to get something for Morgan to free her from a spell. I think every one above second grade should read this book.
Another book from the trove of basement books. I remember reading this one as a little kid, but though I thought about getting some of the rest of the series, I never actually got around to it. This book... well, it's reasonable for a little kid, but I think it's lost its sheen for me as an adult, unlike some of the others in the trove. Mark me as indifferent to it.
The Amazon River runs for 4,000 miles from the mountains of Peru through Brazil to the Atlantic Ocean. The Amazon river basin contains more that half the world's rainforests.

Just a couple of the facts to be learned from Jack and Annie's adventure in Afternoon on the Amazon.

The children are continuing their quest to find 4 special objects to help free Morgan from the evil spell that has her trapped. They have a moonstone from their Ninja adventure.

In this book, they find a book open in the tree h
Sean's favorite part of this book was the monkey throwing mangoes. When I reminded him that we'd read about vampire bats, snakes and a mother jaguar protecting her baby, he wasn't interested. The crocodile on the cover was cool for him, too. These books aren't great, but they keep Sean interested in reading every night!

-Discussion question:
1. Do you want to go to Amazon?
Yes, I do. I want to see many animals that I haven't seen.
2. The main characters were attacked by a jaguar. If you have a same situation, what are you going to do?
Probably, I will run away because I don't think I can beat jaguars.

I liked to read this book because I like the message of this story.
I thought the key phrase was "Just leave them alone

I enjoy any of the magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne. This one was no exception. I felt as though I was in the middle of the amazon with all it's animals. Monkees swinging from tree to tree and alligators ready to bite. It was a great read.

Discussion questions
1 Have you ever explored in the jungle? If you haven't been there, do you want to go?
A: No I haven't, and I don't want to go to the jungle, because there are a lot of dangerous animals!
2 Have you ever seen animals in Amazon somewhere(zoo or somewhere)directly?
A: No. Recently, I don't go to the zoo. I don't have opportunit
This was not one of my favorites but my kids loved the monkey and all the other animals. My 3 year old surprised me by knowing that the cat was a jaguar before the story told him it was. Definitely another great Jack and Annie adventure.

I really love reading these books with my son, and he loves them too. I like that they are longer than your average picture book, yet they are short enough to read in one sitting. We often read these for bedtime, and by the time I hit that last page, my son is usually drifting off to dreamland. They are interesting and have some great topics to start conversations about the places/times they are written about.

My only complaint, still, is that the wording is sometimes "dumbed down" and the senten
I love reading the magic tree house stories out loud to my boys (6 & 4). The story is simple and easy to follow. There some action to keep children interested and also some fun facts! Dialogue gets a little hokey but otherwise great!
I loved the part when Jake Annie went to help a friend named Morgan.You should read this book because its about a brother and sister who go on a adventure together.My favorit part of this book was when Jake Annie are getting attackted by mongos from a monky.I thought this book was awesome Annie is afraid of bugs and there Mom is afraid of mice and Jack Annie really want to have a pet named Peanut could i have a pet mouse.first Jake Annie are trying to help a friend named Morgan get freed from a ...more
From back cover..."Vampire bats and killer ants? That's what Jack and Annie are about to run into when the magic Tree House whisks them away to the Amazon River. It's not long before they get hopelessly lost. Will they be able to find their way back to the tree house? Or are Jack and Annie stuck forever in the rain forest?"

We simply love this book series. It is one of the only "chapter" books series that Carson truly loves and asks to read over and over. This one is full of adventure and of cour

This was another solid addition to the series. I am reading the nonfiction companion as well. Jack and Annie continue to search for the things that will help Morgan break her spell.
On the 2nd day of their quest to help Morgan, they are directed to go to the Amazon and in the Amazon they learn that there are 3 layers to the rainforest. That when the animals run for a munching or crunching sound, they are running from army ants. They get into a river and learn about pirhana, snakes and crocodiles. They learn that the Amazon river is 4,000 miles long. They also have fruit thrown at them from a monkey, finally the monkey gets a branch and helps them get to shore and them leads ...more
