The award winning Magic Tree House books have been translated into over 32 languages and have sold over 100 million copies. Mary Pope Osborne has been a champion for literacy by providing thousands of books to children in need.
These exciting books have turned thousands of children on to reading. Children of all ages love reading about Jack and Annie visiting their "magic" tree house, that leads them on adventures around the world and throughout history..
The Classroom Adventure Program is Mary Pope Osborne's 20th anniversary gift to teachers who have inspired her with their dedication to their students and creative use of Magic Tree House in the classroom.

Fact Tracker with regard to subjects and core curriculum standards.
* A Reading Level Guide for all books in the series.
