We love to pair our activities with books! In the spirit of back to school season, we are starting a new series filled with wonderful activities to go along with the Magic Tree House book series.
The Magic Tree House books are the perfect beginning chapter book stories for kids ages 6-9.
We are joining with a handful of bloggers to bring you fun, educational activities based on the books in the MTH book series every other week this year!

Both of my older girls started their reading journey with the Magic Tree House book series by Mary Pope Osborne. We have the whole set at my house.
I picked up most of these books secondhand as I came across them before my oldest began reading.
These stories are available individually (you can grab them by clicking the images of the books below) as well as in boxed sets, which are usually a much better price than the individual books!
