Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. Readers of the Magic Tree House fiction series will find it reassuring to see two familiar characters and a similar series logo on the cover of this nonfiction guide to ancient Rome and Pompeii. Though designed to provide background for Vacation under the Volcano (1998), the book can easily be used on its own. It offers an accessible introduction to the history of Rome and to Pompeii, both as the site of a volcanic disaster and as a wonderfully preserved ancient Roman town with much to show about daily life during the period. Fully illustrated with black-and-white drawings and photos of sites and artifacts, the book concludes with basic tips for doing research using nonfiction books, lists of recommended books, videos, DVDs, software, Internet sites, and museums. Useful for younger researchers. Carolyn Phelan

I ordered this book for my 9 year old son. He absolutely loves it. Since he has started reading Magic Tree House books his reading has drastically improved. I believe this book and the Magic Tree House books are a must have for this age group. These books help them learn history facts in a fun way.

I only wish I'd discovered this series of books sooner! These books are great supplements to teaching history to your kids. The Magic Tree House website even offers a few free activity pages to go with many of the books and in addition to the history study guide, we use the companion story books to really get "personal" with history.

This one still helped him understand the story better, but mom had to help him read it because it was not as interesting, but I want him to read them any way ;)

Format: Paperback
I have a three and five year old girls and this is the best series going. It is appropriate for the Kindergardener and we have read every single book. Each book in the series is give or take 100 pages but it is a quick and easy read. In reading the books your kids not only get a great story but also pick up on a little history which can lead to some great discussions. I actually read the books with my ipad close by so I can google pictures of the things/places that Jack and Annie (the brother and sister in the books) visit or see. I would recommend these books for every parent/child. When I am done I will be donating the entire set to the local library. Regarding pricing, if your intent is to read the entire series look for don't buy the four book package or single books. There are set of 1-28 and I think there is a set that is everything published 1-48. As with most things, if you buy the whole set you save siginificant money!

There was a lot involved... so much infact that my 8 year old son wasn't very attracted to it. However in the next few years perhaps he'll take another look thought it or use it for a project he does at school. I wouldn't recommend buying this book for 'fun' but rather for direct use with a project you might be working on.

We bought the guide for a trip to Rome and Pompeii. It gave excellent information that made the trip more interesting for our 8 year old, breaking down history into usable information for a child. It also gave her a sense of participation in the planning/learning aspect of our voyage, and she loved being the tour guide, especially in Pompeii.
