Magic Tree House Event
We LOVE...love...love to read books. Some of our favorite kids writers are Cynthia Rylant and Stan and Jan Berenstien and we are really learning about bilingual authors like Diane Gonzales Bertrand she's great. Mary Pope Osborne writes a series of books called the Magic Tree House there are 44 books in the series and we have read or heard a few of them. They are mystery book adventures with an 8 year old boy and his 7 year old sister. The girls love them, they are a pretty easy chapter book read. It was definitely a change after the Rainbow Fairy series that I was tired of reading.. We must have read at least 30 of those..I was glad when they found a new series to read.
Our local Borders was hosting a Magic Tree House event. They promoting literacy. Michael took the girls Saturday evening while I had some special time with the little kids. He told me there were people there two hours before the event. They got there about 45 minutes before the event but at least they were able to get a seat.
They waited in line for 45 minutes before they got to meet the people who were playing Jack and Annie, but they loved it and now want to keep reading more and more books.
