Why this book?
As a homeschool parent, I am always looking for fun books that teach, almost without children realizing. These are definitely hard to find, but the number 1 series that always comes to mind is The Magic Treehouse. In these books, children travel back in time to experience history firsthand. My kids love the characters and the fascinating adventures, and I love that they are educational and easy to read. When teaching history, I always check to see if there is a book in this series to help enrich our studies.
Why should I read it?
