I was so happy when these non-fiction companions to the Magic Tree House books were released. I think they are easy to read and well put together with little side facts and fun illustrations. They are indexed and have great resource lists in the back.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is another good non-fiction Research Guides from Magic Tree House series. We are all caught up with the stories, so now we are going back and trying to catch up with the research guides. There are several that we still have not yet read.

We were lucky to be able to read this one immediately after reading Magic Tree House #44: A Ghost Tale for Christmas Time and we are also about to start reading A Christmas Carol, so I'm glad that we were able to tie all three together. I think it really br

I really like this book. Although with limited paper and the fact this book is for children, I like how they differenciate the chapters and explain what it is like being the rich and the poor.

This was my first Magic Tree House research guide (although I already have several in my library). I really liked it. It was written so my kids would understand it, and the information presented was of high interest. But I think my favorite part of the book was in the back where there was a list of books, dvd's, and websites for further research. Definitely a great addition to the Magic Tree House series.

Great for 5th and 6th grade reluctant readers!

I really enjoyed this book. Typically books that are presenting factual information are somewhat boring to me, but this book kept my attention. I think this would be a good book for the kids to read if we were doing a unit on the time period in which Charles Dickens lived.

I thought that this was a good book. I really thought that it was amazing when they showed how big Charles Dickens house had to be when he had nine children, himself, his wife, and his maid. It was overall a good research book.
