I love the Magic Tree House Books! In "Osborne" style, we have the story of Scrooge and the three ghost of Christmas...very cute.
Classroom Use: Act the story out in class or for another class!

I picked this book up expecting to feel brain cells dying as I read it. I was very wrong; I can see why my students enjoy this series so much. It's very well written (albeit extremely simplistic) and interesting. It was an extremely quick read and is educational, to boot!

Jack and Annie are ready for their next fantasy mission in the Magic Tree House series.
They return to Victorian England as they are called to help rekindle Charles Dickens love of writing.

This was a fun episode in the Magic Tree House series.  A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite holiday stories and in this story Jack and Annie help Charles Dickens create the plot.  I love how Osborne described the contrast between rich and poor in Victorian England.  I wish she would have had

time to go even more in depth, but it was written for the short attention span of children.  The best part of the story, in my opinion, was when Jack and Annie were shown the power an author has to help change the world.
