Dive into the world of Jack and Annie from the Magic Tree House book series at the Magic House in Kirkwood! The special traveling exhibit is open now through February 1, 2015 and is included with your admission to the Magic House.
The Magic Tree House is a popular chapter book series for young readers. My oldest son read and enjoyed quite a few when he was first getting into chapter books–now Mitch is excited to dig into the series too. The Magic House exhibit is a great way to get your kid excited about reading by literally stepping into the story book!
This post is sponsored by the Magic House, who provided free tickets for Mitch to play with them on Big Truck Day.
The Magic Tree House exhibit starts off in Jack and Annie’s tree house where you can browse through copies of the Magic Tree House series. The rest of the exhibit area is divided into “books” where you can experience life during the time of the first Thanksgiving, the American Civil War or during pioneers days.
And because it’s the Magic House you can expect lots of hands-on play! There’s a one room school house, a train, a hospital tent and a colonial house to explore, each filled with rich details. Mitch “picked” corn and “roasted” a turkey in the Pilgrim’s’ story book, drove a train and played with tops in the pioneer’s story book and played the drums and sat in a tent in the Civil War story book.
The exhibit is really great, whether your child has read the stories or not. Mitch isn’t ready for this level of chapter book yet, so he hasn’t had a chance to read these stories for himself. But when we go find a copy of “Thanksgiving on Thursday” and read it together, I can remind him of the time he roasted a turkey and churned butter in that very house–at the Magic House!
