My second grade teacher made us read these in groups. I loved these books....i grew up on them. They teach kids real facts but it is still kid friendly! To be honest after six years i would still pick up a magic tree house book n still enjoy it. Every book is great, so go for all of them:D

This book was great because it talked about space and visiting the moon. When I read this story, I felt like I was actually on the moon! I learned all about moon buggys and living on the moon. Jack and Annie had another scary adventure, but at the end they found what they were looking for.

Jack and Annie have to go to the moon to find the last object to free Morgan Le Fay from her spell. Finding the object turns out to have an extra problem- finding it without running out of air! They find the object, make it back, and undo the spell.

It was cool. I liked the spaceman and the moon buggy. I wish I could go to the moon and say that I was the first kid ever to journey to the moon.

0-This book is a great read for beginners and more advanced readers. Beginning readers love to have the book read to them as they follow along because they know some of the words but still have issues with most. The words are printed large enough for them to follow along closely. More advanced readers are able to read and get into the adventure. This book also has a resource book available that explains the facts of the book and explores more elements of the moon. This book has the children travel in to the future and land on the space station. They are able to explore space and learn about the solar system. They have to find the special object to free Morgan from an evil spell. This book may engage children to learn more about the solar system.

This is quite a deep book for a children's book. It is a great fantasy for children.
bekstrom on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I think that this book is a good example of fantasy. It allows students to experience an unimaginable journey to the moon in a unique way. It is unrealistic how they arrived there and what they must do there, but students get to learn about different aspects of space and the moon through this story. The setting is developed well, it is very important for the reader to understand the environment that children are experiencing. The time is also important to know that the children go ahead to the future, the year 2031 on the moon. This helps the reader understand that the moon base doesn't exist right now. I would use this book in an intermediate classroom. The type of media used is pencil.

In this adventure, Jack and Annie find themselves headed to the moon to find the fourth and final item needed to help undo the magic spell that has been cast on their magical librarian friend, Morgan LeFay. While on the moon, Jack and Annie explore a moon station (built in the future), drive a moon car, experience walking on the moon in their space suits, and run into a mysterious 'moon man'. Their fourth item ends of being a moon rock. When they return to the moon station with the rock they say a little rhyme and the spell is broken! And what a surprise - they realize their friend Morgan has been with them all along.
