Format: Paperback
My son is in 3rd grade and he does not like to read-until he found these Research Guides. He's not a bad reader, he just doesn't like to do it and I hate to fight over READING (which I love). He seemed to fight less with the Magic Treehouse books so I got him some of those in 2nd grade. Then, this year we found these and he cannot put them down. It seems he likes to read, just not fiction! This was a great intro to nonfiction-the book is about the legends and ghosts of New Orleans and some of the stories behind the mysteries. He was captivated. It's not scary and it's rather historical. I have since bought others in the Research Guide series and he's very happy. Great introduction to nonfiction and not boring or overwhelming.

This book gave me chills up my spine and was exciting. Or so says my eight year old son. It had nice facts and he learned a thing or two about history.

The Magic Treehouse and Merlin Mission books are a great introduction to chapter books because they have both girl and boy protagonists, a familiar plotline, magic (who doesn't like magic?!), and exploits of historical interest. The series is second-grade reading material at the outset but migrates to fourth grade difficulty towards the end. This gradual acceleration of difficulty within the comfort zone of beloved characters and plotline really helps children to not just love reading but to continue reading ever more difficult material.

But for me, the real thrill of these books is that it introduces children to reading non-fiction books for pleasure. Sure, you learn a little bit about a particular time and place in history by reading the fictional Jack & Annie adventure. But the real meat comes when you then read the non-fiction companion. There are only research guides for about half of the missions, but they're all gems. Jack and Annie are still there, as little heads appear in the margins with them providing definitions for new vocabulary or interesting extra tidbits of information. And every so often, you'll see some chicken-scratch where Jack has written a brief summary of what you've read, just like he does in his journal entries in the adventures.

Most of the research guides seem to be a bit more difficult to read than the fictional books, but this is largely because of all the scientific vocabulary and names of ancient people and cities. If your child can read the mission, they should be able to read the accompanying research guide with adult help for pronunciation of difficult words.

These books are actually getting my daughter excited about reading. The price was around the same as going to any of the book stores in town.
