I liked the book because my favorite college football team is the Tigers. I like tigers and big cats. The Indian tigers were almost extinct as well as the rhinos.

Once again Jack and Annie face mortal peril- this time in the forests of India from a tiger. They meet lots of Indian animals in a series of "Hey, what's that, Jack?" "I don't know Annie, let me read about it." sequences. This book does get points for talking about how seriously endangered the tiger is, and I don't mind Jack and Annie saving one because this book seems to be contemporary, not set in the past.… (more)

In this one, Jack and Annie travel to India in their search for items to release their friend, Teddy, a dog, from a spell. In India they learn about endangered species, several jungle animals, and meet a blind man who teaches them to "listen" to the jungle.

I really like these books - they're simple enough to keep my 5-year-old's attention; they're exciting; and we both learn about new places and animals. Definitely recommended as read-alouds for 5-6 year-olds and a great early chapter book.

These books are also great conversation starters and would be excellent choices for a young reading group.

This set of books in the Magic Tree House series really showed Osborne's creativity.  Jack and Annie were sent on random missions that had one ultimate goal (rescuing an enchanted puppy in 17-20 and saving Camelot in 21-24).  Jack and Annie brought back random items from each set of missions and Osborne was able to weave those unrelated items into a storyline and lesson for Jack and Annie.  I thought it was very creative and would appeal to my students as readers.… (more)

I liked this book for a few reasons. First the way there was an engaging story as you learn about the different facts about the forest and animals of India. You have a plot and fun characters in the story and have different facts mix in as you are reading the book. The other thing is that the characters are easy to connect to because the characters are both believable in how they interact with each other. Many of the children who are reading he books have a sibling and the characters in the book act exactly as other siblings would in real life. The book was made to engage reluctant readers with a fun story and learn different information about the forests of India at the same time. I have always loved the Magic Tree House series and read many of them when I was younger.… (more)

Jack and Annie are taken back in time by the Magic Tree House to India, where they must help save rare tigers from greedy poachers. Another fun adventure story from the Magic Tree House series, that also teaches kids about protecting endangered creatures.
