Magic Tree House {Practical Mondays #48}

One day, two kids find a tree house in the woods near their house, they climb in and see it full of books! They open one, point to a picture and say I wish I was here and VOILA! The Magic Tree House takes them there within minutes! 

Jack & Anne, have travelled to hundreds of years back to solve a mystery with the Ninjas in Japan, Mummies in Egypt and even thousands of years back in the land of dinosaurs! 

While we’ve read aloud only 6 of the 12 books we have, the collection seems to be over 50. Lucid, informative, perfect for beginners to chapter books for read aloud and read yourself too (60/70 pages each, B&W pictures).

Here’s a Craft Stick Tree house we made:

  1. Those books are great, especially when combined with the non fiction title that goes with it....

  2. My kids LOVED Magic Tree House books, and they were great for various units that we studied. One thing that was less positive was the audio book versions. Because they are for early readers, there are way too many "Said Jack" and "Said Annie" 's to listen to!

    1. The 'said Jack' and 'said Anne' and his 'fixing his glasses' are annoying! I sometimes skip them! hehe.

  3. I love those books! My boys and I have read almost all of them and most of them made such wonderful jumping off point for history and science discussions and units.

  4. I love those books! I was so excited when I discovered them for my classroom and could read them aloud instead of Junie B. Jones!

  5. The girls have always been bigg fans of those as well- around first and second grade.
