It's about time: don't miss any of Jack and Annie's adventures in the Magic Tree House series.

I haven't actually listened to this myself, but it kept my 6-1/2 year old happy and quiet for two days in the car. Afterwards she had to play "Jack and Annie" (the main characters in the series). If your children enjoy this series, they are bound to enjoy this listen. It's nice that the books are short enough to keep a young child's attention.
My daughters (both aged 6) have really enjoyed this series. There are eight stories, so a lot of material to listen to. The stories generated some very good conversations.
Two concerns to warn you about: 1) the characters travel to the Titanic and to 2 wars as part of their travels, so death and tragedy are discussed; 2) The characters (about 8 and 10 year olds), sneak out of the house without parents’ permission.
I am a 5 year-old girl. I like to read and to listen to stories. So I like Magic Tree House books because some of them are funny and some of them are scary. But most of all they're fun. The end.
(From the reader's mom: my daughter read at an early age so she may enjoy these books more than the average kindergartener. I don't know if that's is the case but thought I mention it because this series is targeted to slightly older children)
My 6 year old loves this audible book. I can't say I don't enjoy it myself!! I love Magic Tree House & liked getting 8 books in one!!! Wish Audible would get more collections from this author!!!
My children now 11 and 9 have enjoyed this series from the beginning. What a treat to actually hear the author tell her own stories! Although they have read all the books they enjoy having them read to them on the way to football practice. With almost 40 books to her credit you can't go wrong with these stories.
Osborne is an excellent author. She provides a series of book which will foster continuous reading. Audio can be somewhat mono tone at times
We got this for our 2 year old daughter to listen to as we drive. As soon as we get in the car, she is asking to listen to Anne.
My kids listen to them constantly and repetatively.
It's great to find the first 24 books of the Magic Tree House series in 3 collections of 8 books. It makes a very handy package. I genunely wish the remainder of the series to be sold in collections. When will we see books 25 - 32 grouped together for my next purcase?
My kids love these books. We listen to them over and over.
They are all well developed
She wrote it, so she knows just how the inflections are meant to sound
They are often touching and have good lessons in them
For my boys, age 6 and 7, they love these audiobooks. I like the idea that it is the author narrating these stories too.
She does Annie in a way that makes my boys laugh.
