Being that it's a boy and a girl and has a lot of boy stuff in the books with Ninjas etc. These books have made for a great bonding time for my husband and my two little girls 5 yrs and 2 yrs. It keeps there attention and my hubby even gets into the story as well. It's definately a good daddy daughter or daddy son book to read. As well I am sure if your child is reading it would be great for them as well. What I like about Tree House is after they read each book they print out a passport sticker to add to there passport book makes it even more exciting for them to finish a book and say they have been there. :=)

I think the Night of the Ninjas was a great book but it never said who was Morgan. Jack and Annie went on a trip to find Morgen but they never found her. They saw some ninja's. Jack and Annie thought they were dangerous. They took them to the ninja master. The ninja's told them they had to leave. The ninja's helped them to get back by telling them three words. To find out the three words, read this book. Read this great book. It is a great book because it is very interesting to read and fun.

Jack and Annie find out that Morgan Le Fay is in trouble! They go back to the last book she opened and end up in ancient Japan asking ninjas for help. When Jack and Annie prove they can use their ninja ways to escape the samurai, they are given a stone to help find her.

An entertaining, but predictable, entry in the series. The kids enjoyed it. I found the title to be more interesting than the story.

Don't try this at home! You will want to read chapter nine with your children, young friends, etc. and discuss it with them. In order to follow a mouse across a small branch Jack and Annie must think of themselves as mice so that it will not break under their weight. I think Osborne is being irresponsible in promoting such a philosophy with no caveat as it may result in injury to children.

In Frog Creek, Pennsylvania, Jack and Annie find out that their friend Merlin has been coursed. They go try to rescue him but they do not what is waiting for them...

I really like the Magic Tree House series. They are great for early readers and introducing chapter books. My students also really enjoy them! I like to use them for small reading groups and DEAR time.

These books are short and are not that good. It was a little cool because they had togo to battle.

The reading of this book created a lot of ninja moves as my 7yo added visuals to the story. This book begins the story arc for the next 4 books where Jack and Annie must find the 4 things to help rescue Morgan Le Fay

Both my younger children 7 & 9 love the Magic Treehouse books! The stories are short chapters, fun and easy to read. My youngest loves that she can pick out "chapter books" for her own to read. Both have enjoyed these books in and out of school and usually select a Magic Treehouse story as their "treat" any time we visit the bookstore. I have seen reading specialist and occupational therapist use these books as well, with great response from the child. I would definitely recommend these books to anyone. They are also timeless and can be saved and passed down to the next generation in your family to use and enjoy.

There is nothing you can read in the sample.That is annoying.I recommend buying the book.This is what should be in the sample.Jack,Annie called.Do you want to see the tree house.Sure,Jack called back.They had both just came back from school.First,they had to go tell their mom that they were going on a adventure.Their mom thought they were always playing around with her.Little did see know,they were not.They quickly shot out of their seat after lunch,and they headed of.That is how much they should have wrote.Comment back if you agree uusing the code,#This should be better than this.
