My seven year old twins are re-reading The Magic Tree House books themselves, and I always read the latest book to them at night. We discovered them about eight months ago in the library, and they loved them so much that we started collecting them. We now have the full library of The Magic Tree House books, and have thoroughly enjoyed reading this last installment of Jack and Annie's adventures. It's tough trying to explain to them why we can't go and buy the next one because it isn't out yet! They love them all, they loved Leprechaun in Late Winter, the books are funny, educational, and pull the children right into them. We are now even starting to collect the Research Books that go along with the story books! My children think that Mary Pope Osborne is THE best author ever!

Once again Mary Pope Osborne has written a book that will capture readers to challenge themselves to a 'chapter book'. I have read this series to children ages 7-9 and it has gotten many interested in reading them themselves and into pursuing other series. The author usually includes some history and factual information. She also has created research guides which supplement the facts in the story. Like so many of the children, I always read the teaser for the upcoming book. They come out every 6 months.

My book is called Leprechaun in Late Winter. Jack and Annie help a girl in Ireland have more fun instead of work all the time. I did not enjoy Leprechaun in Late Winter. There was not a lot of detail. They always stay in the same setting most of the time. They always do work in the beginning. It was a slow read. Not a ton of excitement. In the beginning the girl was mean to Jack and Annie. There is really only one exciting part. I did not enjoy it. Those are some reasons that I think you should not read Leprechaun in Late Winter.

If you think you have lost your sense of imagination, step into the world of fantasy or maybe it's not fantasy with Annie and Jack. If you think you do not have anything to offer the world Annie and Jack will show you that you do. In "Leprechaun in Late Winter" by Mary Pope Osborne you will be enchanted and delighted by the protagonists and the people of Galway. As Jack and Annie search for a special young person you'll read about special gifts and talents and understand that you should use your gifts and talents to improve the world around you. This engaging tale takes you to Ireland and explains some of the wonders of Ireland and probably will make you want to go to Ireland and not just in your imagination.

My son loved this book. He is now reading another book, Smitty's Cave Adventures. A great, action adventure book with good moral life's lessons worked into the story line. Very thrilling action book.

We read to my son every night and he loves this book series and in particular the newer ones. He can relate to the characters and because one is a girl and one a boy that makes it even better. I listens intently and reads the covers himself. Although he is not advanced enough of a reader to read the chapters yet, I imagine he will want to reread these books on his own at some point. Great series. Well worth investing in a set.

I bought this for my nephews, ages 4 and 7. They both love the Magic Treehouse series, and the books currently are a fit for both children. The older one is developing his reading skills, and they are at a perfect kevel for him, and the stories and characters keep him involved. The younger of the two can not read yet, but he loves to have them read to him, he likes us to substitute his name and that of his sister when we read it to him, thus immersing himself even more in each of the adventures. They are entertaining and educational, and we have yet to encounter a Magic Treehouse book that we did not enjoy.

My grandchildren, in 1st grade, have been introduced to this series of books. This is the latest one, and we have been reading it together. It is slow going, only a chapter at a time, so I picked it up and finished reading it myself! It's the first one I've read, but thorougly enjoyed it. We're soon finished with it, and can discuss the lessons to be learned by reading it. What a wonderful series of stories for kids!

Mary Pope Osborne always takes us on an exciting adventure. Children in grades three thru seven seem to enjoy her books. This one is no exception.

Leprechaun are my favourite, but reading is more important so when an author combines the two, it create favourtism in the air.
Kaberasturi on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book is part of a series of adventures in which the two main characters, young Jack and Annie stumble upon a magic tree house previously owned by a magical leprechaun hoping to better the world. In this adventure, Jack and Annie travel back in time to the nineteenth century in Ireland to convince a sad young girl to share her artistic talents with the world. This book would be appropriate for independent readers in grades 4-6. The themes addressed here are fiction, helping others, identity and mythology.
