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:

Do you like interesting books? If you do, you should read the series of the Magic Tree House because there are a lot of books in this series.

The main characters are Jack and Annie, but sometimes Peanut is also a main character. In one book, Jack, Annie, and Peanut went to the Amazon rainforest in a boat. A monkey was throwing some things and they thought it was attacking them, but the monkey was just trying to help.

If I was the judge, I would give the series 5 stars because all the interesting

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 book opens up with Jack and Annie searching the Tree House for Peanut, a mouse that lives there. They found him running around in a sock that Annie left as a bed for her. The two then saw that in the corner of the tree house there was yet another book left open. The book was about rainforest which frightened Annie as shockingly she has not been scared of anything up until now but the thought of bugs does. Jack reminds her that they need to help Morgan and so they both agree to go there. The ...more

This book and series has been one of my all time favorites. The adventures Jack and Annie go on are incredible, and it is very educational too. I remember learning about space from these books, and I still keep this thought with me today. I chose this particular novel because I didn't remember it as well as the other ones I had so I gave it a reread and enjoyed it. The relationship between Jack and Annie is great to acknowledge as well, because I can relate since I have two sib

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

In this sixth installment of the Magic Tree House, I quite enjoyed the rain forest story. This is the first time a story hasn't had other humans in it, which the kids are generally scared of. The only trouble they find in this story are the wild animals. I was wondering how they were going to find their next item in something as large as the Amazon Rain Forest. And how are they going to know if it is the item when they see it?

Once again, Jack and Annie find themselves on a new adventure that I

This book was actually a pleasant surprise compared to some of the others. I have previously written some reviews of MTH books from early on in the series, which I have been disappointed with until this one. From the beginning of the book, the story hooks you in and keeps you wondering what will happen. Not only do you find out some fun facts about animals that you will most likely never encounter in real life, but you also start to get concerned for Jack and Annie's well-being by the middle of ...more

One night Jack and Annie were wondering when they could go to the tree house. The next morning they woke up and went outside to their tree house. When they climbed it they heard Peanut still squeaking there from her sock. She said, "Let's go to the next place."
Jack and Annie looked around and saw an open book next to the ninja book.
Annie said, "It's an Amazon book."
Jack said, "I want to learn about new things."
Annie said, "I don't like big bugs."
Jack said, "We have to help Morgan."

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

The Magic Treehouse books as a whole are absolutely phenomenal. They take you on a journey into a whole different part of the world, and are very realistic about teaching the reader about the location of the "trip". In this particular book however, Jack and Annie "travel" to the Amazon and the rainforest. They encounter many things along the way, such as snakes, army ants, birds, monkeys, and more! Read along to discover if they find what they're looking for, and if they have any added help alon ...more

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.

For their next adventure, Jack and Annie are to travel to the Amazon Rain Forest. However, Annie has read about this and knows it is filled with giant bugs and spiders, not something she is happy about encountering. Jack convinces her things will be find, and that besides, they have to find the magic item to help release Morgan la Fay from her spell.
Together, they wade through mountains of army ants, hungry crocodiles, a family of jaguars, and one very rude monkey.

the hall set of the magic tree house is so interesting especially the afternoon on the Amazon . when it is afternoon in the frog creek Anne and Jack went up to the three house they are going to find the opening book when they found it, then the adventure begin. When they are at the amazon they meet the army ants, piranhas, crocodile, snack, jaguar, vampire bats and the monkey. At the last the monkey give them the forth thing.

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

It is what it is. Not an excellent work of fiction, a great character study, or a challenging read. It is a simply written, early interest chapter book meant to engage new readers and give them a beginning taste of adventure in reading. With only 10 chapters, I read this entire book to an eager group of Kindergarten and 1st graders in two sittings. They absolutely loved it and that's all that matters.

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

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.

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

One day, I'll going to the Amazon.
