" 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.

" 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.

" “It spun faster and faster then everything was still. Absolutely still.” " said.

" This is the first book of a wonderful series. I read the series aloud to my kindergarten class every year. It is just right for their listening level. It is about a 2-3 grade reading level. No language or inappropriate behavior. Teaches history and geography. " 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.

"I was wondering when to begin chapter books with my six-year-old, which is really to say I was wondering how to start him on the path toward our shared trip to Hogwarts that I've fantasized about since he was chewing on Sandra Boynton board books. He took the matter in his own hands by asking to read 'Jack and Annie books.' A quick Google search helped me order our first set of Magic Tree House books (#1-4) and we sped through the first one in two days. My son was enthralled with the story and tried to read ahead while I was busy making dinner. This series is exactly what I wanted to help move us into more complicated and exciting narratives that will keep him engaged and eager to improve his reading skills. Thank you, Mary Pope Osborne, from your two newest fans. " said.

"Ages K-4
Brother-and sister team Jack and Annie transport through space and time in a book-filed magic tree house in the woods behind their neighborhood. I first tried reading from Lions at Lunchtime, but quickly realized that it referred to important events and objects from this first book of the series, Dinosaurs Before Dark. I read aloud this book to my Kindergartener, and she loved the characters and action, which moves along at a fast pace. Osborne builds suspense and strong imagery, a feat for a chapter book meant to be read by early readers. Content is infused naturally and memorably, making this a perfect read-aloud to inspire research. I couldn’t help but find Osborne’s liberal use of sentence fragments extremely irritating. Although the occasional well-placed fragment can add emphasis, her use seems random. When I looked ahead in the series to Lions at Lunchtime (#11) and Stage Fright on a Summer Night (#25), I noticed this feature had thankfully disappeared.
