Reviews & Summaries
These books are actually pretty good. I mean, they are meant to be "easy reading", so they aren't exactly the kind of books I would read now, but when you are learning to read, they are actually very good. The main reason I think they are good is because not only do they have a story that is likely to make young readers want to continue reading (which is after all the main point of easy reading books!) but they actually benefit the reader a little, which most easy reading books don't. You can learn a little from the Magic Tree House books. Well, that is, the young kids who would be reading them can learn a little. For instance, in this first book, you can actually learn a little bit about dinosaurs. And if the younger child is interested in the subject of the book (for example, my little sister after reading the dolphin Magic Tree House books, was really interested in learning more about dolphins), then there are Magic Tree House Research Guides too, that teach stuff about the subject - and even older kids can learn some stuff about the subject from those.
So if you know a child who is learning to read... well, they really should read these books.
