Wednesdays with David: The Magic Tree House Series

The Magic Tree House Series
By Mary Pope Osborne
Mostly from our collection; some from the library

           Dinosaurs Before Dark (Magic Tree House, #1)        Pirates Past Noon (Magic Tree House, #4)        Sunset of the Sabertooth (Magic Tree House, #7)     


The story: Jack and Annie are a brother and sister living in Pennsylvania. One day, they discover a mysterious tree house in the woods behind their house. The tree house is full of books and takes them to any place they point to. They soon discover that the tree house belongs to the magician Morgan Le Fay and she needs their help. Jack and Annie soon set off on adventures to the time of the dinosaurs, the time of pirates, and even to the moon!

Mama opines: I like that these books give a little bit of history in a way that the small people still find entertaining. David chose several books in this series as prizes during the summer reading contest at our library. They are short enough to read in one sitting, but have enough information that I feel as if he is really learning something about dinosaurs or knights.

Thoughts from David: I like it because there are tornadoes in it and I like the pirate one because the pirates want them to find the treasure because pirates like treasure. I like them because they are funny. My favorite one so far is Sunset of the Sabertooth.

  3. You have probably heard that Practice makes Perfect. First of all there is no such thing as perfect. Practice does not make perfect, Perfect Practice does. Correct and consistent training and rehearsing will improve your magic, but there will always be room for improvement.magic tricks for kids

  6. In the twentieth century, these four house types were given appealing portrayals, interpreted from more non-exacting Chinese terms, whereby we have one house type that is currently marked "useful for individuals/useful for cash" (otherwise known as Wang Shan Wang Shui).

  7. You are the head honcho in charge of the transaction. You so not have to bow down to a realtor while he or she dictates to you the terms of the sale. It's a great feeling to know you are in charge and you get to call the shots when you sell your own house.washer repairman in Rancho Penasquitos

  11. New homes today are more energy-efficient that homes that were built ten or more years ago. Your new home will have energy-efficient appliances, energy-efficient windows that are double or triple pane, and more.Clinton mo realtor

  13. When you have gone through your home before you as you are planning your upcoming house removals you will see various items that may require some special handling. Of course there are some items that a house removals company will not move for safety reasons such as hazardous materials such as cans of gasoline or paint thinner. They may not be willing to take cans of paint either. MJ Movers

  18. Slowly television came more and more to the forefront and took away much of the popularity and business of the theatres. They were able to offer people the option of watching movies from the comfort and privacy of their homes. Movies began to be available on compact disks and DVD that were playable in players attached to televisions or in computers watch series online free
