Danger in the Darkest Hour by: Mary Pope Osborne

The series Magic Tree House has been a popular series for many years.  In the first Super Edition of the series, author Mary Pope Osborne has Jack, Annie and the treehouse going back in history.  I enjoy reading historical fiction and I believe that this is a great way to get our children interested in history.

Danger in the Darkest Hour takes Annie and Jack to Normandy, France in June 1944.  The battle of D-Day begins the very next day.  They need to find the right people to help them figure out the clues that will enable them to help one of their friends.  As they get close to their friend, they find others that need their help.  Can they save all those people and make it back home before morning?

I highly recommend this book to anyone.  However, if you have a child who is interested in World War II this would be a book they would enjoy and be able to relate to because I am sure most children already relate to Jack and Annie and their Magic Tree House.

After reading this story spend sometime with your family.  Find out if there is anyone in your family that has served their country during time of war.  Share family stories with each other and write them down so that future generations may enjoy the stories too.

Happy Daily Reading
