Well-liked....

Happy Friday to you!  My goodness!  Does it seem like the time is flying by for you?  This is the midpoint of November already!

A well-liked series when I was teaching was the Magic Tree House series written by Mary Pope Osborne.  Some of the books she has written in the series are Dinosaurs Before Dark, Midnight on the Moon, Twister on Tuesday, and Polar Bears Past Bedtime, to name just a few.  Today I am sharing Thanksgiving on Thursday.

This is #27 in the series.

Black and white illustrations.

These books were very popular with many students in my class, and Boy Munchkin became  interested in them as his reading progressed.

This particular book was published in 2002, and I actually recently purchased it at my local Barnes & Noble, so the series is readily available.

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.

  3. Nellie, One of my granddaughter's is just now getting to her proper reading level. I think she'd like this series. I am excited for her. She is reading the diaries of a wimpy kid series right now. Emma was always so far advanced that you couldn't even spell any words around her...she'd repete them back to you.
    Hope you have agreat weekend. xoxo,Susie

  10. I'm not familiar with this series of books, but I'll have to look into them. It's always nice to get the grandchildren interested in books that actually (gasp!) teach them something.

  13. I guess the books are U.S.A. publications Nellie.
    What a wonderful idea Project Linus is. The quilts are quite beautiful and should cheer many sad children. Well done to the ladies of your local UMW.
