This is a second grade independent reading level chapter book.
Innocent content, adventure with a little suspense. The brother and sister have a little tension with each other as siblings usually do. The language is clean, but these did teach my kids to go around saying "Oh man!" which is funny.
The kids enter a tree house that usually goes back in time or to some other geographic place, and the children are put into danger in some way, but always get out of it just fine.
There are historical facts or science or geography facts thrown in here and there, not enough to justify these are history books.
Both of my boys enjoyed this series.
The general plot line is predictable but kids still love them.
As a read aloud by the parent they get annoying after reading two or three (and they took me 25 minutes to read aloud).
This series is often the first chapter book that a child is willing to read. Some children like to read them over and over while others want to read them just once.
I recommend this series for children who are learning to read and are ready to move up to chapter books.
All books in this series are a favorite of children. I'm a library clerk in an elementary school and these are by far one of the favorites all of children in the different grade levels.
My son is 6 and getting into loving to read. When we came across this book series a few months back I never imagined that two little storybook characters would have captivated his imagination in the manner that Jack & Annie have. He can't wait to get each subsequent book in the mail. He has to read it right away, before he plays after school. Because he has to see what adventure they are on next. We love that the stories follow where the last leaves off so that it really seems like the series is a journal about these two's life, not just another book.
My nephew has read this book quite a few times, so I'd say it must be a good book!
Vampire bats and killer ants?
That's what Jack and Annie are about to run into when the Magic Tree House whisks them away to the Amazon River. It's not long before they get hopelessly lost. Will they be able to find their way back to the tree house? Or are Jack and Annie stuck forever in the rain forest?
