Magic Tree House: #13-16 (Collection# 4) by Mary Pope OsborneJack and Annie decide to go for a walk in the woods when they came across a mysterious tree. They decide to enter the treehouse and saw it filled with many books. Jack picks up a book with dinosaurs on the cover and wishes that he could see a dinosaur for real. The book then transports the siblings to the land of the dinosaurs, thousands of years ago. The two encounter a flying dinosaur and Annie gives him the name Henry. Annie and Jack decide to venture around dinosaur land and see all the many creatures. They run into a huge tyrannosaur and they run back to the tree house hoping they can get away from this scary creature. Once they arrive, Jack realizes that he left his backpack behind in the valley of the anatosauruses. Jack decides to be brave and run back into the treacherous land and retrieve the book. He gets stuck in a path with the T-rex, but Henry saves the day. Jack hops on his back and flies him back to the tree house where they find a book about Pennsylvania where he wishes to go back. The tree house returns the two siblings home safely and they both agree not to say a word as to what just happened but to go back to the tree house the next day.
The Magic Treehouse series is something I can remember reading vividly as a child. These books made you want a treehouse, and if you already had one then you never left it.The interesting thing is that the author did an amazing just differentiating the stories in the series. These books take you from dinosaurs times, to meeting ninjas and pirates, to experiencing an earthquake. I think the main thing children can get out of reading not only the one I read, but any of the Magic Treehouse books is entertainment. The books take a childs mind to all kinds of dream worlds that they may have already visited on their own. I am not exactly sure how I would use these as a lesson per say, but I think these would be a great series to have in the classroom for children to read on their own, or maybe read to them as a treat.
On a side note, I did a small amount of research and found that The Magic Treehouse series has a webpage. It offers games, a library, and many other useful tools children can use while reading the books. I think it is interesting that through this website, the stories can become interactive.
