We spent some time learning about how books were made during the middle ages after reading this book.

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. That kinda bugs. But it's not obvious and my boys haven't noticed. They think Jack is just as cool as his sister.

Heather I agree with the girl power thing. I love these books, but that does irk me. I think ALL books should promote all people, not single out boys or girls. But that's just me.
