Stage Fright on a Summer Night
Teachers and librarians love
Magic Tree House Â® books, too!
Thank you for opening faraway places and times to my class through your books. They have given me the chance to bring in additional books, materials, and videos to share with the class.
It excites me to see how involved [my fourth-grade reading class] is in your booksÂ â¦Â I would do anything to get my students more involved, and this has done it.
I discovered your books last yearÂ â¦Â WOW! Our students have gone crazy over them. I canât order enough copies!Â â¦Â Thanks for contributing so much to childrenâs literature!
I first came across your Magic Tree House series when my son brought one homeÂ â¦Â I have since introduced this great series to my class. They have absolutely fallen in love with these books!Â â¦Â My students are now asking me for more independent reading time to read them. Your stories have inspired even my most struggling readers.
I love how I can go beyond the [Magic Tree House] books and use them as springboards for other learning.
We have enjoyed your books all year long. We check your Web site to find new information. We pull our map down to find the areas where the adventures take place. My class always chimes in at key parts of the story. It feels good to hear my students ask for a book and cheer when a new book comes out.
Our students have âMagic Tree House fever.â I canât keep your books on the library shelf.
Your books truly invite children into the pleasure of reading. Thanks for such terrific work.
The children in the fourth grade even hide the [Magic Tree House] books in the library so that they will be able to find them when they are ready to check them out.
My Magic Tree House books are never on the bookshelf because they are always being read by my students. Thank you for creating such a wonderful series.
I wrote this book because Iâve always loved the theater. When I was growing up, I performed in many plays. I even married an actor and playwright! My husband, Will, and I both love plays by Shakespeare. So for the past two summers, weâve enjoyed visiting friends in England who put on plays by Shakespeare on the grounds of a castle. We also like to visit the replica of Shakespeareâs Globe Theater in London.
My main research for Stage Fright on a Summer Night , though, comes from my memories of being onstage. Imagine waiting in the wings, heart pounding, palms sweating, knees shakingÂ â¦Â Then youâre on!
Itâs one of the most frightening and fun experiences you can think of. So I hope youâll be a little frightened and have a lot of fun when you share this adventure with Jack and Annie.
All my best,
