" Fairly standard MTH book. I appreciate that Jack and Annie are equally important to the stories. I very much appreciate their message to Heart of the Wind about women being capable leaders, yet I wonder if implying that Jack and Annie were responsible for a real person's achievements trivializes history? " said.

" Superbe série de livres pour jeunes lecteurs. Ces courtes histoires qui peuvent être lues en une soirée sont vraiment sympa et permettent en plus d'apprendre plein de choses sur des périodes historiques différentes (ici, les Mayas). Je n'ai pas lu tous les autres livres de la série. Ce n'est pas trop gênant en soit pour comprendre l'histoire, même si du coup, on ne comprend pas forcément certaines références à de précédentes aventures. " said.

" Tony and I's third audio book while commuting together this summer.A typical Jack & Annie adventure. This time they travel to an ancient Mayan civilization in Mexico. Peril ensues, but with a little magic, they survive and learn about history while having an excellent adventure.These are always good for a listen (even if I don't think the author makes the best narrator for her own books), and Tony still loves them. " said.

" My youngest son loves The Magic Tree House series, me not so much, but this was interesting about the ancient Mayan Civilization. After reading it my son wanted to look up more information about the Mayans and I realized it was based on a true story. He also wanted to look up sharks. This is the first book in the series that we have read that has really peaked his interest enough to want to find out more information. " said.

" Jack and Annie are on a new series of missions for Merlin and Morgan le Fay, ones that may prove to be their hardest ones yet: having fun. As a thank you for all their hard work the magical friends feel they are due some time to "relax." The siblings first attempt at fun in the sun may prove to be their last. At least they're learning about history along the way! Spoiler alert: Never has a cell phone changed life so much. " said.

" The Super Adventures of the Magic Tree House #53!Wow! What an adventure story! I found it hard to not finish quickly reading this particular ebook and with great illustrations in pictures and words. I hereby highly recommend this ebook for young and old who loves adventure stories where one can learn about other cultures,etc. And of course because of this I feel it needed a five star rating. Super job Mary Pope! By Angela " said.

"This story takes place in ancient Mayan times.

Jack, a thoughtful boy, and Annie, a girl who loves animals who is Jack's sister are the main characters in this story.

Jack explores a coral reef and finds lots of animals. Later, they go in the "Underworld" with Heart-of-the-Wind.

This book reminds me of Dolphins at Daybreak, although no dolphins are in this book, but it does have a coral reef. The books both have sharks. They both have a key similar too. They also both have beautiful oceans.

I would recommend this book to a friend to show him/her that women can lead others too.

"My kids really enjoyed this book! One of our favorites so far of the Magic Tree House series. Jack and Annie take a vacation this time, however, they accidently get sent back into the past of ancient Mayan times. This adventure includes:
A shark attack
Taken prisoner by ancient Mayans
A stroll through a jungle that has lots of scary animals (not to scary for kids)
An escape
Ride on a whale shark and more...

I also loved the message in this book, that girls/women can do anything a boy/man can do. Jack and Annie convey this message to a princess. The princesses' father needs to find a man to take over his kingdom. Jack and Annie help convince the King that a woman (his daughter) can do that job. That his daughter loves her people and would make a good ruler. That was a great message for my kiddos.

Overall, one of our favorites so far!
