The formula of Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House series I believe is an effective one. The simple science facts she presents in each of the books are solid and tangible for the age level to which the series is directed. The theme of time travel offers a nice beginning science fiction element. Basically, for anyone who hasn't experienced these books, two young children find a tree house full of books which take them on adventures to the past when they mention a wish while looking at the book. Pope Osborne, along with her husband, wrote companion non-fiction books for several of the titles. Mummies in the Morning is one. I always try to introduce the series to second graders. It always takes for a few, but truthfully most don't go for the whole series, but rather choose a time period or subject they love and go for that.
