Children's Literature - Craig Lancto
The eighteenth in the Magic Tree House series takes young Jack and Annie to the Great Plains, in the early 19th century. The tree house, belonging to Arthurian librarian Morgan le Fay is filled with books, the illustrations of which serve as hyperlinks to the places depicted. Once on their adventure, Jack uses the reference book as a source of information subtly conveyed in the body of the text to the reader. As part of the story, Jack and Annie live the period. In this case, they visit the Lakota Indians, largest of the Native American tribes. while visiting, they learn about the clothing, customs, and daily lives of the Indians and their lost land and lifestyle. Jack models note-taking and the use of reference materials, and the story is one segment of a quest to solve four ancient riddles in order to become Master Librarians.
