Monday With a Mad Genius- Booklikes-opoly
Monday with a Mad Genius - Mary Pope Osborne,Sal Murdocca

This is a book I read with my son. It also happens to fit well for my Booklikes-oply book. We started it two nights ago  and finished it tonight.

 

In this Jack and Annie are on a Merlin Mission. They are on a quest to "find happiness." This time they travel back and end up meeting Leonardo da Vinci. I live how Pope spins a great tale for kids while a accurately depicting the time period and history of thd content involving the subject matter.

 

My kid really likes this series, we have a large collection of these, just missing the few most recent books. I love that he likes these, I do to and don't get too bored while reading. I am so glad he has surpassed the "see spot run" level.

 

Just under 150 pages

 

$20 + $2= $22

The Knight at Dawn
The Knight at Dawn - Mary Pope Osborne,Sal Murdocca

The Knight at Dawn is a Magic Tree House Book. This book is very easy to read and interesting for many children. Jack and Annie go back to explore the magic tree house after their first encounter with going to dinosaur times. They end up going to a castle and getting into different situations while exploring this new place.

 

I would put this book in my classroom library. I think this would be a great book for students to read to themselves.

 

Lexile Level - 310

Good Morning, Gorilla
Good Morning, Gorillas - Mary Pope Osborne,Sal Murdocca

Any Magic Tree House book is always a hit with children. It was my favorite book as a kid. These are easy lesson books and even free read books. I would lov eto have this for the kids to choose to read. if we were to do a whole group it would be good tot teach on an ecosystem of a gorilla. This is on a 360L in the Lexile system.

Good story with a nice pace.

I love the way the author incorporates facts with fantasy in this series. It is such a fun way for children to learn.

This is a short, simple book that is great for young readers.

Twister on Tuesday - Mary Pope Osborne,Sal Murdocca

I loved the Magic Tree House series growing up so when I saw this book in the Little Free Lending Library, I had to read it.

 

It is the same fun, educational stories that I remember when I was a kid. This is such a great series. It is a good combination of fact, adventure, and friendship.

 

While it is book 23 in the series, it can be read as a standalone because the prologue pretty much catches you up on what's going on. But I am sure it is better if you have read the preceding books (I will have to be on the lookout for them).

 

I like that Jack and Annie had an actual mission to complete. From what I remember from the first few books, they just traveled through the books, which was interesting, but this is a good progression for the series.
