"3.5 out of 5

I’ve never read any of the Magic Tree House books before but now I totally see why this series appeals to so many young readers. Ten short chapters, a large type, a fairly simple vocabulary, a slightly predictable yet still suspenseful and fast-paced plot, and a handful of pleasing, well-placed black-and-white illustrations make this slim volume a very successful transitional chapter book. Plus, while reading this first magical time travel adventure in the series, I’ve learned quite a few fun facts about dinosaurs!

"This short story is the first instalment of a famed children's fantasy adventure series. When Jack and Annie finds a secret tree house full of magical books that can take them to secret magical lands, that's when the real adventure begins. As the title suggests, this book takes them to the land of dinosaurs and leads them towards a series of exciting adventures.
The story is divided into ten chapters, and comprises very easy vocabulary as it targets young readers. However, the most interesting part of this story is its scientific information wrapped in simple everyday language. What I noticed in children, is that they are always drawn towards superheroes, fairy tale characters, dinosaurs etc. In this series, they won't only learn a lot about their favourite characters but at the same time, enjoy the story to the fullest.
Moreover, the story consists of two protagonists, a boy and a girl. As a result, children from both genders will be able to enjoy the stories.
3 stars from a 25 years old point of view. But undoubtedly this book deserves a 5 star from a younger reader.

" i have never actually read these books, but i enjoyed this one a lot! " said.

" Mother Read: 8/1/16Oldest Son Read July '16-Aug. '16My oldest was no big on reading until he started reading this book. It has taken awhile for us to get through it because of birthday parties and vacations to Florida but we have made it through the book. Now on to book 2. " said.

" We took this series on a car trip with my 4 year old daughter. While the stories got a bit dull for us grown ups, my daughter loved every minute of it. When we got home, she grabbed the CD's and headed straight to her room to listen to more! " said.

" I don't really know how to rate children's books like this one. I didn't particularly like it, but I can see the things that would make children like it. The story was imaginative and creative and when the t-rex showed up, it became scary and exciting. Mostly I felt that Annie seemed like a fun kid and Jack needed to get the stick out of his rear end. " said.

" Believe it or not, this was my first time reading a Magic Tree House book and I don't know why I didn't read these growing up. I LOVED IT. I may or may not be a dinosaur nerd, Jurassic Park is one of my all time favorites. So this was right up my alley. I can see why kids eat these up, and why there are so many in the series. Safe to say, I am late to the party. But this will not be the last I read (or recommend!! Everyone read these!) " said.

"Okay, Elliott and I love these books!! I have always read to Elliott, and so we have an amazing assortment of childrens' books. But when Elliott was approaching Kindergarten I could tell he was ready for just a little bit more. We got a CD of this book read by the author Mary Pope Osborne in a 'mighty kid's meal' at Wendys!! one of the only times that I ever agreed to getting the 'toy suprise':O) This is the first book in a long series of amazing books of adventure, magic, and true and factual history! Elliott loves them and gets them from the Library at school every week! There are so many books that he hasn't brought the same book home twice! This brother and sister combo go on missions through time and worlds by 'wishing' on books. The brother loves to read and do his research, while the sister is brave and adventurous! The subjects range from Dinosaurs to the Rainforest, to the first Thanksgiving, to the Civil War, to ancient Greek olympics, to turning into seals and flying with Leonardo DaVinci!! " said.
