However, the Magic Treehouse Books are quick reads that are easy to dramatize. Main characters Jack and Annie have distinct personalities that are fun to give voice to. Jack is the serious scientific type. With his signature "Oh, man!", he is the perfect counterpoint to younger, impetuous sister Annie. ("Hi!")
While it's not necessary to start with the first book of the series (Ms Osborne does a commendable job of filling in the back story in each book w/o slowing down the narration), I recommend starting with book one since there are elements that build in each consecutive book. (Who is the mysterious M?)
The Treehouse books also offer contemporary vocabulary (but not to the point of being ridiculous), cool settings and fun drawings.
But the best thing about these books? Even my oh, so cool ten year old will sit down and listen.
Jack and Annie have to find a dragon coin to give to Morgan. I learned how to take care of people who are poor.
I felt excited because I felt like I was the dragon of the castle. This book reminds me of Dragon King on Damage Road. I think elementary students who like to read who like the author, Mary Pope Osborne, who like fantasy and adventure books would love this book.
I liked this book because of the Terra Cotta soldiers (we have one of these at home !), the Chinese hats that Jack and Annie wore, and the dragon kings clothes. And I think I'm a good judge of Chinese things, since I was born in China !
