Reading with kids

1. Earthquake in the Early Morning
Luke continues to read through this Magic Tree House series. In book # 24, Jack and Annie are transported to San Francisco in 1906 during the terrible earthquake. Luke was fascinated that an entire city could burn down and asked if that could happen today. Also he did not understand why adults did not believe that kids could help in a crisis. Good question!

2. Stage Fright on a Summer Night
In MTH #25, Jack and Annie meet William Shakespeare, act in one of his plays and help save a bear.

3. Good Morning Gorillas
In MTH #26, Jack and Annie find themselves in the mountains of Africa. They meet the giant mountain gorillas and learn that they are quite gentle animals.
