The Magic Tree House series is a great first chapter book series. The stories are episodic but they continue with an interesting story that lends itself to a lot of curriculum. Dolphins at Daybreak would be good for any reader who was ready to make the step from easy readers to chapter books. vocabulary is at a level that challenges but does not scare off the reader, and new words are included in the context of the text. There is not a lot of story between the lines. Which is good for the first chapter book, however the book has clues that make the reader think as they are reading.

Language Arts/Science/Geography

Lesson Plan: The class could read the Magic Tree House series aloud and study the different cultures that the main characters travel to.
