I bought the Magic Tree House books 1 through 16 for my eight year old daughter. She loves them. She reads a book in two days. She can relate to the stories and has an easy time explaining what she read. This is a great start-reader for children. Mary Pope uses a healthy combination of every-day words and with some more advanced verbiage. Though my daugter doesn't always understand the big words, she is introduced to them. This challenges her comprehension. I would recommend this series to parents of children ages 7 to 9.

He has read the first 16 in two weeks. That after reading one book in the last year. He tells me three times a day how much he likes these books. If I told him we had to sell our Wii to buy the next 25 books he wouldn't hesitate.

I think many early reader books are below the intelligence of young kids yet their reading hasn't caught up to more advanced books. This series fills that gap perfectly.

Our five year old son is an early reader, and one of the problems we've had is finding good books that are challenging enough, yet age appropriate and interesting. A lot of the chapter books we found to be written more for children 7 years or older, and these didn't hold much interest for him, maybe because the material was too complex. On the other side, if the material was age appropriate they were written in a repetitive style using simple words that he found too boring. These books are just the right mix of interesting, exciting, and age appropriate, and we're glad to have found them. He was becoming bored with reading anything other than magazines, and these books have re-sparked his interest, which is exactly what we were looking for.

The only problem was she read them too fast ; ) They are so educational, colorful and fun.
The bookclub teacher in school has the kids read them there so my granddaughter was delighted to have her own set.
