Format: Paperback
These books are brilliant for both parents and children. The stories are captivating and full of learning (without being boring) If your child is not yet ready for reading, then these books are just the right size for bed-time stories. I read my son a chapter at a time and he gets so frustrated when I finish at the best bits, he tries to read a little himself!
The stories in the series are about the different adventures that brother and sister (Jack and Annie) go on. Their adventures range from seeing Dinosaurs - discribing how they look and what they do - through to going into space. The author, Mary Pope Osborne, has cleverly mixed a lovely story with real facts. I never imagined history could be so captivating
If you are thinking of buying this book, I have a warning...be prepared to answer all the questions that your excited child will ask, and get ready to buy the whole set, because you will want to know what happens!

The Magic Tree House books have caught the imagination of my 9 year old girl and 7 year old boy while on holiday in America. To get them to read during the summer holidays is an onerous task but the Magic Tree House Books managed it and prised them away from computer games! The children in the stories have found a Magic Tree House full of books and whenever they wish to be in the place or time described in the book, they have magic adventures which are all based on factual information. With the up-to-date narrative style, my children could relate to the storybook children in such a way that they no sooner finished one book than they were reaching for the next! Each story whisks the reader away to yet another interesting period in the history of the world, explains fascinating geographical phenomena, or introduces them to environmental concerns and the health of the planet. With factual research material available in the same series, these first four Magic Tree House books will be the first of many once you and your children get hold of them.

Format: Paperback
We've read the first 20 and they're easy and educational,a bit formulaic but with some great action parts. Jack (bookish)and Annie (fearless) travel to different Historical periods and contexts on vairous quests, retrieveing a lost Library book from Pompei just as Vesuvius is erupting or inspiring a Cowboy to stop corraling wild horses adn write a book. I've learnt plenty of facts about the Titanic and Medieval Castles and both my 8 year old daughter (independently)and 5 year old son gobble them up. The writing is ok, enough repetition for the readers to feel at home but the Americanisms grate (endless 'flashlights' which 'shined')and we all predict the exclamations of 'Oh man', 'oh brother' and 'yikes'. They vary in quality generally getting stronger as the series progresses('Pirates Past Noon' def weaker than 'Vikings Ships at Sunset')Plenty of illustrations and the range of settings in the familiar tree house package make it a lively and engaging first series of Chapter books for boys or girls.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have just received Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House Books 1-4. I have absolutely no doubt that my children will jump for joy every time we read a chapter and that there is a heap of educational value in them. But, Random House, I am deeply, deeply disappointed. These books are in black and white inside - including the illustrations. They are printed on a wood-heavy paper that makes your skin crawl to touch it, and the grey colour of the paper makes it hard to decipher some of the images. The pages are bound in so badly that they are buckled (in all four books). Random House is considered a reputable publisher across the globe, but this product is a disgrace. My advice? If you care about the object in your hands as much as you do its content, look for a different edition of the Magic Tree House books.

I bought these books for my son (age 6) on the recommendation of a friend and they are just wonderful. I was finding it hard to find books for him to enjoy as most aimed at this age group are about fairies and ponies. These are easy to read and quick moving which keep him interested. There are some pictures but they are ideal for the move from simple reading books with pictures on every page to more the more advanced. Dinosaurs and Knights, what little boy is not going to love that.

Please be aware this set contains American editions and uses different language to the British editions eg Mom instead of Mum and elementary school instead of primary school. Also the print quality is very poor. The stories themselves are great for my 7 year old to read.

These books are fabulous. My almost 6 year old son received them for Christmas and they are a great first step for moving up to books without pictures (these books only have a picture on every fourth or fifth page). He and my 7.5 year old daughter are so into the stories, they can't wait to read at night before bedtime. We just finished the Books 1-4 box set so I bought the next 8 books and they were VERY happy when they arrived in the mail. If you want your kids to get excited about reading, this series will do the trick!

Great birthday gift for my 7 year old niece who wanted chapter books. Kids fall in love with the characters who become their friends and they travel right along with them as discovers, detectives and researchers of exciting new places!! Easy for kids to become addicted to reading this series.
