This is a great set. My children love it and I love it too because now they are reading and they don't mind reading it on their own since they are such good stories. It keeps them very interested in the stories and they are always anxious to read to the next series.

Did you ever want to travel the world? Then read The Magic Tree House series. They are great books written and illustrated by Mary Pope Osborne. The stories are about a boy and girl helping a magical librarian. They have to go to different places and a long time ago too. Some places have a lot of animals because those places are along time ago. They have to meet a lot of people or animals to help them find stuff. They have colorful titles, but inside of the books have barely any pictures and they are black and gray. The books are great. You can learn facts from these books. It also feels like a real adventure. I recommend these books to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders, but some 4th and 5th graders can read it if they want to. You can sometimes feel like your Jack the boy or Annie the girl. The setting takes place in Frog Creek Woods and around the world. The main characters are Jack and Annie and supporting character are Morgan Le Fay and sometimes the mom and dad. The books are definitely fiction because the plot is about Jack and Annie going in a tree house that could take them anywhere. The first books only have 10 chapters but when you get to the higher books there are more chapters, and the chapters are longer. Some books have golden words and those books are the higher books. When you get to the books you should finish them in about an hour or half. I hope you read this book because it's a great book.

My son hated to read. I bought him his first Tree House book a few months ago and now he loves to read. He loves traveling to different countries with Jack and Annie. He can't wait to get to the next adventure. Great books, highly recommended.

I bought this set for my first grader and he absolutely loved them. He is learning new words and things about new places. The stories are very age appropriate and entertaining.

I have to say, I love these books. I read a lot of adult books, including Stephen King, Nicholas Sparks, Nora Roberts, and Danielle Steel, but all of these books were the books that got me 'into' reading. Even to this day, me being 13, I still want to sit down and read a good kid book and everytime I do I think of these books. I highly recommend that you let your children read these series. They are very imaginative and creative. They truly helped me in school. [SRAIGHT A'S TILL THIS DAY.] :]

My grandson and I read the first Magic Treehouse together a couple of months before his fifth birthday, and I was surprised that he was totally absorbed in the book, which was the first "real" book without illustrations that he had read to him. Now, a year later, he is on #39 and reading the books to me (with a few requests for help with words and their meanings). As an educator, I am absolutely thrilled that this series is so educational about history and different cultures -- and particularly that the stories are so intriguing that I love them as much as my grandson. I teach at an international school in Beijing and have lived in Japan and Switzerland and Brazil, as well, so I'm just as excited to find cultural references to food, traditions, and people that are accurate and interesting. I highly recommend these books to all parents and grandparents and teachers. These are the kinds of books that will "hook" children into being life-long readers. Five Stars for firing up the power of a child's imagination and being a solid book for beginning independent readers. Few illustrations are the whole point of these books, which encourage creativity of the mind!

We purchased this book to read aloud to our four year old daughter at bed time. She enjoys the stories very much, but they are not as entertaining for adults as some other series we've read such as Chronicles of Narnia. The short sentence structure makes them difficult to read out loud.

I bought a few books for my kids this past week as an early X-mas gift, and this set was one of them. would recommend it.

My 5 year loves to read. He just became ready for chapter type books, and we thought this set suited him just fine. It was perfect, he didn't need to ask for help on a single word. He loves the thrill of the storylines, he gets absorbed into their world.

I started reading these to my five yr old son. Every night he reminds me that we need to read it. THe price is right, and we can NEVER find them in the library. #3 was lost, they said. So it made it difficult. I have reccommended them to all my friends!

When I started reading the magical treehouse series to my 5 yr old son, I was honestly surprised when he was able to tell me what chapter we were on, and what was happening in the story from the night before. He is so excited to go to bed now, just to find out what Jack and Annie are going to be discovering next. Even though there arent pictures on every page, he begs me to keep going 'Just to the next chapter, mom, please'. The neatest part of the entire experience is the little facts that are in the books, that i hear him bring up when he's around his friends, 'did you know that a colt is a baby horse' and 'mom, i told timothy about the saber tooth tiger....' the author has worked some incredible lessons that are important for children to learn while their young. the books are amazing!

My 7 year old loves this series. I enjoy reading the books with her. Although the books are fiction, they contain alot of facts and interesting information. My daughter is not only improving her reading skills but also learning history and science.

I work (volunteer) in the Col Johnston Elementary School Library Fort Huachuca, Arizona. I see a lot of books come into the library. I see a lot go out with the children, as well. I noticed that the Magic Tree House series are the most popular. So I decided to read them myself to see what they were all about. They are fantastic. I have only read two (2) of the books in this 24 book series and enjoyed them both. I have recommended this series to my daughter to read to the children or have the chidren read them to her. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I luv magic tree house books. It shows a lot of avaliable mixed emotions. What every kid young should read. I totally recommand these books to the young or more adventurous people. It has good and different fun adventures. I think this is a good valiable book that is very different from some books that I have read. i usually never get so caught up in books but these stories really got me. I highly recommend Magic Tree House to kids ages 5-13 to read. Good book. Spanish: estoy bien estoy bien. Bein. Interesta!
