Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osborne

4 Aug

While visiting the Crispin Family in New Jersey I asked my friend Erin when she started to read chapter books to her kids.  She proceeded to list numerous chapter books that the kids love.  So when we returned back to Massachusetts I decided to set out in search of a short chapter book that Jayden could follow.  I did a little research and came across the Magic Tree House collection by Mary Pope Osborne.  So far, so good!  Jayden really seems to like them and after every chapter we do a re-cap as to what happened.  The only problem I am encountering is that they’re too short!  Jayden wants to just keep reading (delaying bed time?) but if I read more than 2 chapters a day we finish the book in less than a week.  The books are super cheap and can be bought on Amazon.com or The Christmas Tree Shop where my mom found a whole collection of them.

    TB loves to check out chapter books from the library. He has even started reading some of the beginning reader ones himself. I have noticed that he stays interested in chapter books a lot more than some of the simpler “learn to read” books.

    TB is loving this series. He also likes Boxcar Children, and we sometimes read CS Lewis, but he seems to lose interest after a chapter, so that might be a little much for him yet.
