Product Description:

Jack and Annie open a book about Ancient Egypt in their magic tree house and are suddenly whisked to that time period. They meet Queen Hutepi, who needs help finding her copy of the Book of the Dead for her journey through the underworld. With lots of suspense and black-and-white drawings, this book is great for children transitioning to chapter books. 65 pgs. ~ Rachel S.

Publisher Description:

Jack and Annie don't need another mummy. But that's what they get when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to ancient Egypt. There they meet a long-dead queen who needs their help. Will Jack and Annie be able to solve the puzzle, or will they end up as mummies themselves?

Category Description for STUDY GUIDES & BOOKS:

Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.

Category Description for Magic Tree House Books:

Jack is a studious eight year-old boy who loves books and research, especially taking notes. His seven year-old sister, Annie, loves animals, enjoys pretending, and is practically fearless. One day on their way home, Jack and Annie spot an incredible tree house perched high in the top of tree. Although it is right in the woods by their home, they are quite sure theyve never seen the tree house before. They stop to admire it and Annie suggests they climb the long rope ladder to the top. Jack immediately dismisses the idea, reminding Annie that they have no idea who it belongs to and could get in trouble. But Annie begins to climb, and when she gets to the top she yells to Jack that the room is filled with books. This proves to be too much of a temptation for Jack, and he soon joins Annie in the tree house, constantly reminding her to be quiet because they are not supposed to be there. They begin to look at the books, and when Jack sees a picture of a Pterandon, he sighs, "I wish I could see a Pterandon for real." Suddenly Annie spots a monster and the tree house begins to spin. When it stops, Annie and Jack discover they are back in prehistoric times, walking with the dinosaurs. Eventually they find their way home from their first adventure, and they decide to keep it a secret, because, after all, nobody would believe them anyway. They return to the Magic Tree House day after day, choosing the places theyll go but not knowing what kind of adventures theyll have. Dinosaurs, mummies, knights, pirates and ninjas are just the beginning. Digest-sized books contain 10 short chapters each, a handful of pictures, and are each about 70 pages long-perfect for children beginning to read chapter books. Original series meets the F&P level M.

The publisher is now splitting the original Magic Tree House books into three series - Magic Tree House (which are for readers just starting chapter books and include the original books 1-28), Magic Tree House Merlin Missions (which are more challenging adventures for experienced readers and starts with #29 Christmas in Camelot, but it is renumbered as Magic Tree House Merlin Missions Book #1), and Magic Tree House Super Editions which are longer and more dangerous adventures (see description). Magic Tree House Research Guides or "Fact Trackers" are available for some of the books. ~ Melissa

Category Description for SERIES:

Please see our Reading section for leveled reading series such as I Can Read, Step Into Reading, and many more.

If you are looking for a rigorous all-in-one teacher/student literature guide, these guides are a good choice. The research-based activities include text-dependent questions, student interpretation of vocabulary words, close reading exercises, and analyzing the text through writing. Comprehension questions are available in two levels of difficulty. There are also cross curricular activity pages including a grammar and other subject activity page for every section. Unit study suggestions and possible books to dig deeper are also listed. This gives you the option to dive further into the literature with other subjects.

Each guide begins with a short author biography and a book summary. A pre-reading exercise gives students the opportunity to think about the theme outside the context of the story. Then, multiple assignments for each section of the book allow students to analyze the story elements in different ways. Some reading responses include drawing pictures or writing in the form of narrative, informative, or opinion. The close reading exercises have students reread a specific part of a chapter before answering questions so they can use textual evidence in their response. Graphic organizers are used throughout to keep the students engaged.

These literature guides are very thorough and implement different strategies to get the most out of the text. Guides require unabridged editions, but not specific editions. Questions are based on chapters and not specific pages. Student pages are reproducible for classroom use only. Post- reading activities and an answer key are included.

The Magic Tree House books are WONDERFUL tools to achieve fun and painless learning both for teacher and student These books are all on 2nd-3rd grade reading levels but would be appropriate for read-alouds for younger students or just for "easy reading" for older students I am 32 and love reading them and I have learned a great deal from these little chapter books! These books are a mixture of "historical" and "scientific" fiction My 7-year-old daughter has enthusiastically read 26 books from this series in the last 6 months without my having to remind her to do her reading! Most of these books teach historical and/or scientific facts and throw into the mix exciting fictional adventures! Each book begins with a prologue on who Jack and Annie are and how they came to discover the Magic Tree House! The children climb the tree house and find a new book each time which was left by their magical friend Morgan Le Fay Morgan always has an important mission for them and when they pick up a book about a particular topic (such as Ancient Greece) they say "I wish we could go there" and they are whisked away back in time (or forward depending on the topic) When the children get to their destination they are magically dressed in the appropriate clothing for the era and meet important characters from the past I have never found a series of books that is so easy and fun to read yet challenging at the same time! We have learned something new each time we read one of the books! Even though these books are on a 2nd-3rd grade reading level they introduce some difficult topics for elementary-aged children on an age-appropriate level I was amazed at how well these books teach facts about sad and sometimes frightening historical events while still remaining suitable for the target audience Some of these topics include the San Franciso earthquake of 1906 the sinking of the Titanic a tornado at a one-room schoolhouse in Pioneer days Pompeii just as Mt Vesuvius is erupting and battlefields in the Civil War and the Revolutionary War I highly recommend these books to anyone who loves history and science and likes to go on magical adventures!
