However, I didn't like that 8 books were crammed on 5 CD's, which is not very comfortable for a child if it wants to listen to just one particular story. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars... !

To make matters worse, on this CD set, Random House did not create a separate track for each chapter. Some tracks contain two chapters, others contain one. My poor kids can't find where they left off easily.
I'm fixing the first problem by making copies for my kids, including the tracks for each book on a separate CD, and printing labels using book cover images. For those who aren't technically savvy, this isn't the best solution. Random House, please think about the audience (4-8 year old kids) before skimping like this again.
I can't say enough about the Magic Tree House series. They combine adventure with learning. In each story Jack and Annie take a trip in the magic tree house to different places and even different times. They meet famous historical people or experience historical events. Sometimes they travel to the future or interact with wildlife. Annie's strength is her intuition and courage. Jack's strength is his love of books and research. The two kids' strengths combine to support and guide the team.
My one complaint when we bought the first 8 stories on CD was that the stories overlap the discs which make it difficult for my son to independently select the story he wants. So I often have to navigate and find the beginning of the story then we have to switch to another disc to finish it. This is still a small hassle. However it didn't prevent me from purchasing the next set in the series. I enjoy listening to the stories too. On first listening they are interesting. With additional listening I realized how much information is conveyed.
From the beginning of the MTH stories, four stories are grouped together toward special goals. In this set, episode 8 -12, the kids are earning their Master Librarian cards by completing 4 dangerous adventures. The second four the new librarians are sent back in time to collect 4 lost myths. When they succeed they are rewarded with enlightenment that the stories are about constellations.
The stories are read by the author. She has a voice that is easy to listen to. We have some in book form as well for bed time reading. But the CD's are so perfect for riding in the car. We live in a rural area so he is stuck in his car seat for half hour rides quite often. My son is 5 now but I imagine these stories would interest 4 to 10 year olds.
