If kids get hooked on Magic Tree House, they're hooked on reading.
This is one series that kids, teachers, librarians, and parents all
agree on. A perfect blend of magic, adventure, history, science,
danger, and cuteness—the topics range from kid pleasers
(pirates, the Titanic, pandas) to curriculum perfect (rain
forest, American Revolution, Abraham Lincoln) to seasonal shoe-ins
(Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving).
