My Review over Vacation under the Volcano by Mary Pope Osborne Today I will review a story book from the Magic Tree house series. It is ¿Vacation under the Volcano, a Historical Fiction book. This book is about Jack and Anne (the main characters) going on a mission to Pompeii, Italy. But there is a problem, the mountain above the city named, Mt. Vesuvius, is about to erupt!And as Jack and Anne continue on their mission, they learn about the eruption that will happen. Then, it blows. Jack and Anne rush to the bridge to escape the city, but the bridge has collapsed, and the river has dried up! Will Jack and Anne escape? Or will they be history in Pompeii? Read, Vacation Under the Volcano to find out. In this book, I think there were 3 main strengths. One- Description of the characters. I think the author had really described them well. Two- Description of setting. The author describes most of the setting well. Three- The Facts. Mary Pope Osborne has this area nailed. She has explained everything about Pompeii that Jack and Anne learned very well, she knows her facts! In this book, I think there was only one weakness, the description of setting in the beginning. In the beginning, the story starts at Jack and Anne¿s house, she didn¿t describe this area very well at all¿. I DO RECOMMEND THIS BOOK! The reason is this- it is so fun to read, yet is educational. It is great for 2nd to 5th graders to read in my opinion! I hope that you want to grab this book off the shelves at the local bookstore now that you have read my review, and will enjoy this book!

My 6 year old niece has about 20 books of the Magic Tree House series. After reading the book, she had alot of questions about volcanos, such as how fast does lava flow, did the people of Pompeii have any warning, why did they build the town so close to a volcano, what about Hawaii? Excellent book. More importantly, it sparked her interest in related topics about volcanos.

My 6 yr. old grandson, who lives in Germany, is so engrossed with this series, that I am having to send hime 6 at a time to keep up! He is bi-lingual, but his learning to read in English is a definite plus with these books, as they only read in German in school. It's a good thing he has a birthday coming up so I can send him some more! I thought these were for older kids but definitely age is not a problem for such magical stories....For the kid in all of us!
