Magic Tree House Research Guides are now Magic Tree House Fact Trackers! Track the facts with Jack and Annie!
When Jack and Annie got back from their adventure in Magic Tree House #39: Dark Day in the Deep Sea, they had lots of questions. How big is a giant squid? What is a dragonfish? How do deep-sea creatures find food when it's so dark down there? What do scientists think mythical sea monsters might really be? Find out the answers to these questions and more as Jack and Annie track the facts. Filled with up-to-date information, photos, illustrations, and fun tidbits from Jack and Annie, the Magic Tree House Fact Trackers are the perfect way for kids to find out more about the topics they discovered in their favorite Magic Tree House adventures.
The "Magic Tree House" series has always appealed to young readers who enjoy acquiring facts while reading a story. Now these kids can gain more knowledge with the "Magic Tree House Research Guides" series, each of the books in this series is written as a companion to one of the chapter books. This volume on strange sea creatures is full of the kind of creepy-looking, razor-toothed, giant, or weird marine animals that were once thought to be sea monsters and are still fascinating to many youngsters. As with other "Magic Tree House" books, this one is short on style with strings of choppy, declarative sentences, but it is packed with facts. It is well illustrated, with both drawings and black-and-white photographs on every page. Jack and Annie, the protagonists of the chapter books, guide readers through fun facts and additional snippets of information. Back matter is extensive, with material that will be helpful to young report-writers as well as budding marine biologists. Included are tips on doing research at both libraries and aquariums, lists of suggested books, museums, aquariums, DVDs, and internet sites, as well as a detailed index.
