Lately, I've been re-discovering books I loved when I was a kid. The Magic Tree House happens to be one of them. I am giving four stars because not only do these books hold sentimental value to me, they are really good for children's literature. They are pretty easy books and aren't exactly recommended for middle-grade or are juvenile fiction- so I'm putting it on my "for-younger-kids" shelf. Which means I recommend it to kids in elementary school- mostly first grade to third grade (I was in first grade when I first read these books). Anyway, I highly recommend these books to above age group. It's a highly original story idea and I loved the Magic Tree House series as a child. Happy reading!
