    It's sink or swim for Jack and Annie when Magic Tree House whisks them off to the middle of the ocean. And that's just the beginning....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! My sons, ages 3 and 5, both get swept away with these stories. They like this series even better than 1-8. I like that the stories teach them something about history, while still encourage them to use their imaginations. I also like that the brother and sister don't argue, but work together as a team during their adventures.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    We love to listen to these on car trips or in waiting rooms to pass the time.

    Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny, four orphaned siblings, suddenly appear in a small town. The children make a home for themselves in an abandoned red boxcar they discover in the woods. Ambitious and resourceful, the plucky children make a happy life for themselves - until Violet gets too sick for her brothers and sister to care for her.

    Story

    My five year old son loves these stories, and I enjoy listening to them as well. The cameraderie among the siblings is refreshing and it is nice how resourceful the kids are. Each of the stories has an element of mystery to them, which keeps you interested. (My three year old, however, starts to get antsy with these stories, because they are so lengthy - we have to take Dr. Seuss and Nate the Great breaks for him!)

    Story

    My three year old son loves these stories (we also have Nate the Great Volume 4). He requests to listen to them every time we are in the car. My 5 year old son likes them, too, but started to get bored and needed the next level up (Boxcar Children Mysteries, A to Z Mysteries). Keep in mind that these books were written in the 70's, so they call their rainboots "rubbers" which threw me off the first time I heard Nate say it!
    I really like the narrator - he is good about switching up voices for different characters

    This collection contains The Orange Outlaw, The Panda Puzzle, The Quicksand Question, and The Runaway Racehorse. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are visiting Dink’s Uncle Warren in New York City when several paintings are stolen from his apartment building. Do the kids have enough clues to catch this crafty—and hungry—crook?

    Story

    My son started listening to the Nate the Great audiobooks a few months back and quickly became bored with them. He loves that these A to Z Mysteries have a more involved story line and a bit more suited for "big kids". The language is appropriate (don't have to worry about hearing "shut up" or "stupid") and I like that the kids in the story are resourceful. The only complaint I have is that most of the stories I have listened to so far are about finding a thief...would be more interesting if they switched up the mystery a bit, but that's just me.
