4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By E. Kennen on April 2, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book covers one of the most serious subjects in the Magic Tree House Research Guide series - the often unpleasant and usually unfair lives of children during Charles Dickens' time. It does so with great care and and honesty.

This is not the type of book kids go wild about. There are a lot of (gently told) unpleasant truths in it. But it is an important reminder of the way things were, and how they have changed. I have not come across another kid's book about the lives of children in the Victorian Age, which makes this book all the more valuable.

While there is a lot of discussion about poverty, orphans, the imbalance between social classes, child labor, and even debtor's prison, the book isn't all serious. The characters of Jack and Annie insert humor where they can, and the discussions on transportation, toys, etc. are interesting.

I highly recommend this book.

These are simple, but they contain a fair amount of information. Interesting for kids. I'm not as crazy about the Magic Treehouse stories, but I really like the research guides.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By High Expectations on November 26, 2012
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!
