I gave my 7-year-old grandson this set, because his mother said that he really liked the preceding books in the series. Therefore I will post his review, as expressed in the thank-you note I received today: "Dear Grandma, Thank you for the Box Set of Magic Tree House books #13-16. I've read #13 and #14 and am halfway through #15. They are the best Magic Tree House books I've ever read." Obviously, a hit!
My 7-year old son read all four the first day we got them. I asked him if he thought they were good and he said "They're better then good; they'reAWESOME!" ... nuff said! :)
I bought the Magic Tree House books 1 through 16 for my eight year old daughter. She loves them. She reads a book in two days. She can relate to the stories and has an easy time explaining what she read. This is a great start-reader for children. Mary Pope uses a healthy combination of every-day words and with some more advanced verbiage. Though my daugter doesn't always understand the big words, she is introduced to them. This challenges her comprehension. I would recommend this series to parents of children ages 7 to 9.
I purchased these books for my 8 year old. I have had a hard time finding books that are full of great content but still age appropriate for her. Most are full of drama and disrespectful kids. These have really peaked her interest. I love that they are getting her excited about history and reading in general. She likes to read them aloud to her little sister before bed so they are both learning. It's really a win, win. Before we discovered The Magic Tree House series it was difficult to get her excited about reading. Now she can't wait to finish one book so she can read the next one. Great series, great books! I highly recommend.
My daughter reads these multiple times! Nice price and a great gift for a kid (mine is 8) who wants to go on an adventure! She has almost every book from this series and will read them constantly! She even re reads the books she loves them so much! Which is great because I liked them as a kid and now she can read what I once read! (only she reads them much faster than I did at her age). They area great price on here as well!
My daughter absolutely loves the Magic Tree House series. The books are written for elementary students with definitive chapters that serve as stopping and starting points for them, but each book carries over from one to the next like a television series. Yes, you could skip around, but the books are so much more fluid if you read them in groupings so all of the mysteries can be solved with the clues. There aren't enough wonderful things to be said about these books.
My kids love the Magic Tree House books. We bought this for our 8 year old to add to the collection that his older sister and brother had already started. They are great and good to pass on to others. So far all of my kids have enjoyed them and can't put them down.
He has read the first 16 in two weeks. That after reading one book in the last year. He tells me three times a day how much he likes these books. If I told him we had to sell our Wii to buy the next 25 books he wouldn't hesitate.I think many early reader books are below the intelligence of young kids yet their reading hasn't caught up to more advanced books. This series fills that gap perfectly.
