Magic Tree House Books Boxed Set, Books 1-28

Jack and Annie are siblings and the heroes of the Magic Tree House books. This Boxed Set of Books 1-28 Magic Tree House Boxed Set, Books 1-28, makes a great gift for any gifting occasion – birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah, promotion from grade to grade, Easter, Halloween and any other day you want to make extra special. The Magic Tree House Books are by Mary Pope Osborne and illustrated by Sal Murdocca.

Jack and Annie have a magic tree house that allows them to become time travelers. Jack and Annie are regular kids who use their magic tree house as a time travel portal. They just point to a picture in a book and say together, “I wish we can go there.” What happens next is nothing sort of magical and amazing - The tree-house spins faster and faster until the young detectives arrive at their predetermined destination. Some of the many adventures in the Magic Tree House Books Boxed Set, Books 1-28 take them to destinations such as Africa, the American West, Australia, Greece and even the moon. These children have the most unbelievable exploits.

Morgan le Fay is the magical librarian of Camelot and she is the one who provided the kids with the magical tree house. They must report their findings to Morgan after each adventure. The young detectives have a mystery to solve in every adventure book.

Especially kids, but also grandparents, parents and teachers all love the Scholastic early reader chapter books. This early chapter series is easy and fun for young readers and helps as they transition easily from picture books to chapter books. Another additional plus is that the children learn facts about each book’s location. For example, in Lions at Lunchtime, the kids learn facts about different African animals and migration. Jack and Annie see lions, elephants, crocodiles and giraffes. Even though the young reader just thinks it is a book to enjoy they come away with additional knowledge about each animal and the reason they migrate.

Children all enjoy a good mystery book, and with the visual clues provided by the illustrator they find that the facts do not overwhelm them…. Plus they are fun and easy to identify with Jack and Annie – they all want to have their own magic tree house and have those same adventures.

Chapter books are an important step along the reading journey. Each of these story books averages hundred-twenty pages in nine chapters. Every chapter is short which allows the reader a sense of accomplishment at each chapter’s end. They feel gratified to complete a chapter! The Magic Tree House Books series are a “winner” with second to fourth grade students. But don’t forget that younger children will enjoy the adventures as well - so be sure to read them aloud to get them interested and hooked on the story themes, and then help them as they develop their reading skills. You will all enjoy the Magic Tree House Series!
