Don't feel like writing a coherent review, but here are some notes:

-There are plenty of indigenous people writing about their own cultures and histories so tbh I don't see the point of anyone else writing "educational stories" like this and profiting off of them unless there's significant collaboration involved. Not to mention a lot of this is inaccurate and/or offensive, sooo.

-This is about two white kids (Jack and Annie) who travel back in time to visit a Lakota encampment. As if Lakota people

Osborne has largely steered clear of the history of the Americas in her series, and with good reason: the legacy of colonialism is an enormously difficult subject to approach for any age group. In the latest story arc of the series, which includes books 17-20, Osborne has finally ventured into the relatively recent American past and the results -- at least here -- are mixed.

While she describes the mass slaughter of the bison unambiguously, even making the point that it was a military maneuver de

Great adventure!
3.5 stars

Lots of good information in this one. Jack and Annie go back in time and spend a day with some Lakota indians. Jack's trusty research book had some great facts to share about the Indians, but they also spent some time with an Indian "grandmother" who taught them some fascinating things about their beliefs and way of life.

The adventure with the buffalo was improbable and somewhat worrisome. I grew up not far from Yellowstone National Park, and we'd visit at least once a year. So perhaps
I'm sorry. But I spent the whole book wondering why none of the Lakota people even questioned why there were two little white kids running around the plains all by themselves.
The novel《Buffalo before breakfast》is talking about Jack and Annie went early 1800s to find the gift from the prairie blue.
At the beginning of the story, they went to the magic tree house and find the Morgan’s instrution and went to the Great Plains.
At the middle of the story, they visit the Native American tribes and learn many ways that how they lives.
At the end of the story, they get the gift from the prairie blue and back to their house.
This story tell us that don’t let the pride led you to

I didn't like this book because I do not like buffaloes charging at me. I enjoyed this book because I liked the part when Annie calmed a bunch of buffaloes down when they were charging at Black Hawk and Jack made Sunlight (a horse that Annie named) go down to the buffaloes and Black Hawk went on to Sunlight.

I really liked this one for the wisdom hidden in Lakota indians' words about life, school, food, soul. Deep questions about our society (and Lakota's) arose in my 5yo's mind and heart after reading this book.

Jake and Annie go on an adventure back in time to the Great Plains and learn how the Indians obtained their resource and their belief in the Great Spirit. Jack and Annie learned quite a bit from the Indians. It was a simpler time that should've never been disturbed. In my opinion, Indians had it right, and the white man ruined it.

The main characters in “Magic Tree House #18: Buffalo Before Breakfast” are Jack, Annie, Black Hawk,and Grandma. Jack and Annie are two kids f

Mary (6): 4.5 stars. I say that I'm going to whack you with this Kindle. Hehehehe! What else do you have to say about this book? I liked it when Jack, um, saved, um, Black Hawk from the buffalos and how Annie stopped the stampede with the buffalo woman.

Sam (8): 4.5 stars. I liked it because it gave some more information about buffalo and the, uh, Mary, what were they called? The people? Dad, you better not be writing that. The Lakota? Yes. Okay, what about them? I liked it when Jack saved them.

Eleanor says: Jack and Annie met a boy named Black Hawk. He was from the Lakota tribe. His grandmother said don’t hunt the buffalo because they didn’t need any food. You can never waste the gifts the Buffalo gives you. Black Hawk did not listen. He tried to sneak up on them and betrayed his grandma by not listening. The buffalo chased Black Hawk.

This adventure offers some interesting facts about the Lakota tribes for young readers in an idealized setting that makes you ache for the massacre of the buffalo and what was done to the Native Americans. Read with my nine year old grandson in a single setting. If you’ve read one of the over fifty books about Jack, Annie and their Magic Time-Traveling Treehouse, you’ve read them all ... but each does offer new settings and facts about historical events from around the world.

Reading "Buffalo Before Breakfast" brought me back to the series I loved from second to fifth grade. I loved reading Mary Pope Osborne's books and the adventures of Jack and Annie in every story. I loved all the history involved in each story, as well as the aspect of mystery. Magic Tree house books are great for all students at the elementary level!

Buffalo Before Breakfast
o Grades 3-5
o Contemporary realistic fiction
o Like the other Majic Treehouse, this book takes the reader on an adventure. This book was a fun ready to see these kids do amazing things. The thing that I love this series is that children don’t even know that they are learning. That is getting all of this information while reading about the grerta adventures.

Read to my grand children - a nice story about a girl and boy who travel back in time via a magic tree to the time when buffalo roamed. They meet an Indian boy, his grandmother and the tribe. Nice story about native Americans and how it used to be. My kids (4 and 6) enjoyed it very much.

Another super cute one! Listening to these while I clean my dorm is a great escape!

This was educational with a great plot. This would be awesome for kids who want to know a little more about the Native American way of life without having to read a textbook for it.

We read this book as a class while learning about Native Americans. It was a great supplement book for the Plains region. My students enjoyed the story and were curious to learn if White Buffalo Woman was fact or fiction. It provoked some great ideas for their research.
The 18th book in the Magic Tree House series. Jack and Annie's tree house adventure takes them to the Great Plains and the Lakota Indians. This book is the second one where Jack and Annie are looking for a gift to free a little dog from a magic spell. An entertaining and fun chapter book.

Like the past MTH attempts to tackle indigenous culture, this one also falls back on a lot of easy tropes; it’s still a great story, and a nice springboard to talking about more expansive takes on indigenous American history.

I better appreciate the bison I've seen in Yellowstone now, had no idea military had killed them off intentionally during fights with Native Americans. Glad they are better protected now.
