Magic Tree House
My favorite books are the Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne. I read these to my boys at bedtime when they were young. They are great stories to history and other cultures that we loved experiencing together. We even named our dog after the magical character. My sons have become great traveling adventurers themselves and I am sure it is because we had these bedtime journeys together!
