Magic Tree House #16: Hour of the Olympics

The Magic Tree House books Dinosaurs Before Dark debuted 20 years ago yesterday, on July 28.  Since then author Mary Pope Osborne and illustrator Sal Murdocca have taken her readers on forty-seven more adventures with Jack and Annie. The forty-eighth adventure A Perfect Time for Pandas just hit bookseller's shelves on July 24, 2012.

If your kids haven't gotten into The Magic Tree House craze yet, we suggest you check out a few books, which are easily available at local libraries, used book stores, consignment stores, and local bookstores.  There's something for everyone in this series, whether you like science, history, culture, art, fantasy, etc.  You name it, if your child doesn't find a book in this series that he/she likes, then he/she isn't trying!  Mary Pope Osborne's adventures are perfect for budding readers!  I guarantee you, your child won't want to put down these page turners!

And for this Olympic season, try: Magic Tree House #16: Hour of the Olympics

And also check it's nonfiction companion book: Magic Tree House Fact Tracker #10: Ancient Greece and the Olympics


  1. Hiya thanks for your comment and visit from Janes Post of the Month - love love love Jessie Wilcox Smith - even a post about it somewhere deep in my archives. Share your love of kids books too. Will take a look through your posts when I get a chance

  2. I LOVE the idea of this blog ... one of the ways we choose books at the library, when the baby is screaming and my 4-year-old is near the end is 'looking for gold' ... anything that has an award sticker usually has something worth reading :). I'll definitely be returning :)

  3. What a lovely blog, i'm so glad to have found you. Catherine
