This book was interesting and had a lot of history facts about Hawaii and its culture. It was interesting that there were passages telling the important facts about Hawaii and still be able to read the adventure story about Jack and Annie on yet another adventure on the Magic Tree House.

8 year old Jack and 7 year old Annie have a mysterious tree house in the woods filled with books. They soon discover that the tree house is magic and it can take them anywhere they wanted to go in the books. In this adventure they are taken to an Hawaiian island. While there they learn how to surf and strange things start happening and they soon discover that a tidal wave is headed their way. This book is full of adventure and would be a great pleasure reading book for any 1st-3rd grade student.

Another great Jack & Annie book, but on a CD. My daughter has read the whole series and we have listened to this particular audiobook in the car MANY times. It is narrated by Mary Pope-Osborne so it creates a connection right away when listening to it.

I think this is a great chapter book for middle of the road readers. It does have some tough parts, but they are immediately explained in detail.

I know that a lot of people like these Magic Tree House books but I personally just thought that they were okay. This High Tide in Hawaii one was my favorite though. I think that this fiction book is a good introduction to learning about the waves and the ocean and other parts of the world. Jack and Annie find a book about Hawaii and decide to go there and in the process of their trip, teh kids learn about Hawaii and the culture and weather there.What sold me on this book was when I went to my elementary library and found the resource book to go with it! Each book in this series has a nonfiction book to follow it! It gives a lot of information about things that link to the story book itself. Like for instance...this book is based in Hawaii so it briefly touches on the water and all that sort of stuff. The nonfiction book that goes with it goes into detail about disaster, earthquakes, tsunamis,volcanoes and lots of other events that happen in nature. It is a perfect book for the children to be able to enjoy and then to be have an automatic resource for other information after the students are engaged in the topic!

I don't love these books, but my son does. They are a quick read and do have histrorical connections which I appreciate. High Tide in Hawaii is one that I have read because we love Hawaii so much.

I liked it because it was about surfing, and I thought that tidal waves were called tsunamis. I learned that tidal waves have earthquakes before them, but they aren't called tidal waves anymore (because they do not have anything to do with tides). They are called tsunamis now.

This book follows Jack and Annie on an adventure to Hawaii! Their magic tree house sends them on an adventure to solve a riddle and the two learn about native Hawaiian customs, learn how to surf, and most of, learn the value of friendship. This book is great for young boys as it involves adventure with earthquakes and tsunamis and is also educational in a very fun way.

Annie felt that they had to go to the tree house. That wrote: To find a special magic, build a specia kind of ship that rides the waves, on every kind of trip. They thought that they had to buil a ship but as they went to Hawaii they met to Hawaiian kids one boy called: Boka and a girl called: Kama. They went surfing when Jack felt thet there was an earthquake and searched it in his book, it read "often after an earthquake there used to be a tsunami! He told it to his friends and sister and as fast as they coul they on to of a cliff andbecause of that they were rescued thanks to Jack. And at the end they found out that the special kind of ship was friendship. I recommend this book for people who like adventure books.
