A Kid's Review on December 12, 2002
Format: Paperback
Meet Jack and Annie. Jack is an eight year old boy who seeks adventure. In every trip, Jack takes notes to learn more interesting facts. He carries his little backpack almost everywhere with his useful supplies inside. Annie is Jack's little sister. Annie is just one year younger than Jack. These two siblings have great times together in many different places. Annie is a sweet, honest, considerate girl who looks up to Jack.
Jack and Annie go lots of places, in lots of different times, helping others in their time, in the present and in the past. For example, in another book, in the same series (Magic Tree House Series) I read a book about Jack and Annie with George Washington! That was a long time ago!
Afternoon on the Amazon is an exciting book about Jack and Annie who try to help Morgan le Fay by finding four special things. (Everything they find starts with "M".) In the tree house, every time, they climb up the ladder, look for their trusty friend, Peanut the mouse, and point to a picture in a book while wishing to go there. The tree house starts to spin, spin, and spin faster until they appear in a tree in the place they wish to go. In the rain forest, Jack and Annie have trouble with the following animals: a mother cheetah, a crocodile, a monkey, an army of ants, piranhas and a snake. But in the end, Jack and Annie find out that the animals were just being themselves, with the monkey just trying to be helpful.
My favorite part of the book is when Jack is trying to stop their boat, and he accidentally snatched a snake. It really shakes up the story. Jack and Annie try to push the boat fast and duck their heads. They safely escaped, scared to death!
This is a very exciting book.

I truely value that they package these up into multipacks!!

Again 4 fun books finding JAck and Annie traveling to amazing places! Again all four books tied together with a main plot!

WHat things do I love most about MTH?

I love that the books are pretty much kept light and airly, not dragged down with too much adversity or darkness.

Passing my passion for reading and getting "lost" within a series and characters to my son!! FOr the first time he wants to go out and buy books because of what he knows he will enjoy reading in them. Not because he just knows he likes to be read too! He thinks about what books are about now and what he likes to "read". It is refreashing as a parent not to be picking out of the same stockpile of overread favorites.

He constantly WANTS to know what books are next. Where are "we" going next with Jack and Annie!! While some adults may cringe at the simplicity of the characters or plots. I have had to stop reading more then once to wait for a giggle outburst to stop. He gets their humor even if I am groaning.

I love the ninja book the best because they helped Jack and Annie cross the icy water. I'm 6 years old and these are the first chapter books i've read. My Mom even likes them.

I love all of the books.

These are great books to read with your children or to have them read to themselves when they can read. My son has loved these books since he was 3. They are chapter books that hold his attention and we learn about history besides. Money spent on books that educate and hold a younger child's attention is money well spent!

I am a first grade teacher and I beg you to NOT get any of these books. They are a terrible example for children learning to write. One of the many strategies I teach my students to use while spelling and writing is to ask themselves, "Does it look right?" because so much of what is taught is reinforced by exposure and experience. With the MTH books being such poor examples of grammar, sentence structure, and story development, what these children are learning (or un-learning) is detrimental. What in the world were the editor and author thinking??? They should be ashamed. I came on to write an honest review because there are so many that praise this series and I am glad to see there are people who realize how important correct grammar and syntax are in children's literature. I really thought I was alone due to the bizarre popularity of these books.

This is a such a well written series, I can't be more effusive about it than to say that it is the type of writing that will make readers out of non readers! The characterisation, the factual education, the style, all make for absorbing reading for a child transitioning from early reading to beyond. I know of so many children taken by this series that no others have been able to achieve with the same effect. Give it a try! We were first drawn to this series because of the Dolphin Adventure title in the series- my kid loves dolphins needless to say, It has become staple bed time reading, and has held his attention like no other series! Thats a feat as my kid has been a reluctant reader, slow to pick wordy-books over picture books. It has been a struggle up till now, but for the first time, there is a ray of hope and light from this enthralling Magic Tree House series. Hail Mary!
