Mary Pope Osborne is the author of many books for children, including novels, picture books, biographies, mysteries, and retellings of Greek, Norse and Celtic Mythology and folk tales. She is probably most well know for her beloved Magic Tree House series. She has written more than 50 titles in the series – and recently created the Magic Tree House Super Edition series which have longer, more complex stories and a slightly higher reading level.
Listening to stories helps children build vocabulary and expand their attention spans. Most important, listening stimulates children’s imaginations. When children listen to stories, they have to create pictures in their minds they have to “see” the characters, the scenery and costumes. In this way, listeners collaborate with the storyteller to create the world of the story. Listening to stories also motivates small children to learn how to read.

One of the things Mary loves most about the Magic Tree House series is that she gets to record all of the audiobooks for Listening Library! When she narrates she feels the spell of the story take over and guide her voice. She said:
I become the characters as I speak their lines – whether it’s Jack, Annie, Merlin the magician, an Egyptian queen or fierce pirates. At the end of a recording day, I always feel triumphant – as if I have just traveled with Jack and Annie to a faraway, scary place, accomplished a dangerous mission and returned home to Frog Creek in time for dinner.
Now, travel back in time to the very first book in the series Dinosaurs Before Dark (also available on CD as an audiobook collection) and hear how Jack and Annie first discovered the Magic Tree House.

Mary Pope Osborne has created and narrated these tales in a perfect way as no one else could have done. Each story is different from the rest in this magic tree house series but the quest and the characters are the same. Jack and Annie the brother and sister start their journey from the dinosaur world in “Dinosaurs before dark” in which they escape death then come the “knight at dawn” where they fail to get along with the knights of the past. “Mummies in the morning and pirates past noon” share the life of pirates and some myths related to mummies.
The quest to find Morgan le Fay takes them to the ninja world in the “nights of ninjas” they learn the art of fighting for the first time and thus leave the defensive mood and come to real fighting. In “Afternoon on the Amazon and Sunset of the saber tooth” they fight vampire bats and saber tooth tiger and successfully complete their mission but still fail to find Morgan le Fay.
Their last and final destination is the moon and all they have to do is to find something starting with the letter “M” in order to help Morgan le Fay and also to end their long quest related to the magic tree house. This time for the first time they find themselves in the future, but the future is not much helpful to them as they still lack oxygen supply on the moon. The stories have a sense of adventure and also a bond is there in the form of Morgan whom both Jack and Annie are bound to find so that they can end the whole thing.
Not only these, but the author has other book series that are worth listening to includingMagic Tree House Collection: Books andMerlin Mission Collection which you may not want to leave out.

Magic Tree House
To everyone else, it might seem like nothing much happens in the small town of Frog Creek. But they haven’t stepped inside Jack and Annie’s magic tree house
From sailing the high seas with Pirates to uncovering Ancient Egyptian mummies, the classic Magic Tree House series sees two spirited siblings go on journeys through space and time. Join Jack and Annie on their enchanting adventures and learn about history, solve riddles and uncover mystical objects. What wisdom do the Congo’s giant mountain gorillas hold? Can Jack and Annie save a tiger from a trap? Will they successfully scale Machu Picchu to find a missing llama?
Who better to tell the tales of the Magic Tree House than the author herself? Mary Pope Osbourne’s warm delivery of the adventures of Jack and Annie allows anyone that listens to conjure up images of the lush Congo, the seas of the Caribbean and America’s Old West. Switching effortlessly between Morgan, who tasks the children with their quests, Annie and Jack, Osbourne’s flawless performance ignites the imagination of children, regardless of their age.
By the time Osbourne was 15, she’d moved over 13 times, visited numerous states and journeyed abroad. Her dad’s job in the army meant that travelling was a part of life and it kindled a wanderlust in the author that would continue well into adulthood. The Magic Tree House is an extension of her adventurous spirit, allowing her to explore ancient villages, learn about religions and unearth civilisations that can be shared and enjoyed with her young listeners.
With over million copies sold, the Magic Tree House is one of the most popular chapter book series of all time. Jack and Annie were first introduced to the world in and, over 25 years later, continue to inspire generations of children to learn and develop. The series has been such a success that it’s even been adapted for theatre, with Lionsgate acquiring the rights for a Magic Tree House live-action film.

Her short hair fluttered from strong air currents, and her bangs, combed to one side, rose high up. She squinted her eyes from the strong wind, and when tears flowed down her eyelashes, Lera again hid in the stuffy salon, straightening her hair. Her soul was restless and even a little gloomy, since her husband was silent all the way. The novel constantly chewed her goodbye at the cafe Karaoke Bar, and wished that this road would go on and on, delaying the.

Run home. Teeth chattering. The wine ran out, so did the port, and the parents had a bottle of vodka in the buffet. We, without taking out a glass, took several sips straight from the bottleneck. Heat began to spread throughout the body.

Her finger slipped out of the wet, hot vagina, flashed boldly in the light with abundant lubrication, passed her partner's buttocks and, easily sliding into the sphincter, ended. Up in Mikhail's anus. The man closed his eyes with pleasure when Tanya's gentle finger began to massage, albeit not directly, his prostate.
He removed his hardened penis from a woman's mouth almost completely, so that Tanya's full lips almost jumped off the slippery head of the penis. The woman smacked her lips not quite decently, but the next second the soaked toy dived into her mouth again, and Tanya almost through the.
