    I just back from a trip to Galveston, Texas. Before going there all I knew about it was beach and the 1900 Hurricane. I went to our library catalog to see if I could find some interesting information about Galveston, and well, Jack and Annie came to the rescue! They are the coolest kid time travelers! While in Galveston went to a lot of historical site and many homes and buildings proudly displayed the "1900 Storm survivor" We drove by the Ursaline Convent but it didn't survive Hurricane Camille I just back from a trip to Galveston, Texas.

What I didn't know about was Sister Mary Joseph "a shining Light" how come I had to read a Magic Tree House book to learn about her! I learned bout the Bryan's, Moody's, and Rosenberg's, but no Sister Mary Joseph. This book just wet my appetite for more 1900 Galveston storm information. I maybe to do an interlinear loan (probably from Texas) to learn more.

We have both learned a lot of history and other subjects from these books over the years and in a very fun and entertaining way! I highly recommend this book and all the books in this series. (Fact Trackers, too).

    This was an amazing book! It's about Jack and Annie trying to save the hurricane that was in Galveston, Texas, 1900 and the story goes on. And I think that Mary Pope Osborne is very good at drawing the picture's. And if I ever saw Mary Pope Osborne in real life then I would scream! This was an amazing book!

    Dad’s pick. Easy to read. Predictable just like all Magic Tree House books. But good history lessons learned for the kids.

    This is another opportunity to introduce young readers to history - and open up an exploration of the history of meteorology and weather prediction. What instruments were used to predict the weather in the early 1900's? What did we learn from disasters? It will be interesting to find out.

    I had never heard about the Galveston hurricane of 1900 so it was interesting to read about. I also love the focus on helping where you can in difficult situations. Every little bit helps.

    Frequently travelers Jack and Annie travel back in time once again with the help of their magic tree house. But there's a storm brewing in the Gulf, and rain is on its way. Since the youngsters have read a little bit about the hurricane that wreaks havoc on Galveston, Texas in 1900, where the tree house has taken them, they are determined to help the city's residents get to safety.

But since weather forecasters and newspaper articles declare that there is no need to worry, no one listens to them. They manage to rescue some dogs and help some humans, and seek shelter with Rose, a kind-hearted woman, and her daughter who are waiting for the woman's husband to come home. Along with Rose, the siblings float through the flood waters after they crash into her home and make their way to the Ursuline Academy where others have gathered for refuge. There are several dramatic scenes and vivid descriptions of the rising water in this account that might provide some comfort to those who have experienced similar trauma. Once again, a book shows that heroism comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

    As an adult it just amazes me how Jack and Annie run into all these adventures without a thought of fear. I mean, I am sitting here going “you’re 8ish years old! Don’t get hurt!” As a kid I never thought of the bad consequences either, I just thought they were cool adventurous kids. But they are so much more than that. Hurricanes, earthquakes, Sabertooth Tigers, and Volcanic eruptions don’t stop these kids.

I mean, they knew a hurricane was coming, they knew that the Strands was the part of Galveston that got flooded the worst, yet they went there anyway to warn people. Then, when the bad stuff hit they didn’t run to high ground and safe places where they knew they would be safe, they helped people and puppies and others. How insane! Why is this children’s series not a TV show or a movie series again? Just great!

    This was my very first time reading a Magic School House series book! I read this book because my daughter is moving to Galveston for Graduate school and I wanted to learn about the place in a fun, historical fictional way. I'm so impressed that Mary Pope Osborne writes these realistic fictional books. This is one is number 30. It's new to our public library and was published in 2018.

I learned that Galveston is an island between the Gulf of Mexico to the south and the Galveston Bay to the north. It was one of the busiest seaports in the USA in the late 1800's when my Great, great Grandfather immigrated from Austria/Germany. The Ursuline Academy is where many people including the main characters in this book find high ground and safety from the Sept.8, 1900 hurricane! I can't wait to go visit and see the places Osborne talked about! Thank you!

    I have mixed feelings about the Magic Tree House "reboot." My main concern, however, is just that I'm unsure as to how the "new" 29-32 fit into the chronology of the story; like, do these take place between the original 28 and the Merlin Missions? Or do these relegate the Merlin Missions to an alternate universe? And are the kids 7 and 8, or are they 10 and 11 as we left them in Night of the Ninth Dragon? A lot of questions.

That being said, the new stories are written in a funnier style with a faster pace, and that's good for Gen Z and their soon-to-be-kids, who are more used to media in that style. If the goal is to return to the youngest MTH demographic and secure new readers for future books, then I very much think that goal has been accomplished.

    The Magic Tree House books were my favorite as a kid. I just got a library card not too long ago to my local library. And I checked this book out among other Magic Tree House books. I love weather and this book was just perfect for me. I think that this book would be a good introduction to the Galveston Hurricane if the person reading the book never heard of it before.

    This is an easy to read chapter book for young readers! Children will get to follow an exciting adventure, while also learning a history lesson as they read. Children will learn about the historical event of the 1990 Hurricane in Galveston Texas. Being from Texas, personally made this story even more interesting of a read to me and I'm sure children from Texas would agree. If children enjoy this book there are a lot more books in the series with equal adventure and history instore. This is an easy to read chapter book for young readers!

    This is one of my favorite books from The Magic Tree House series. This is an exciting story about Jack and Annie trying to be heroes during the 1900 Galveston hurricane. This book has a nice balance between fiction and nonfiction and will captivate a reader of any age. The illustrations in this book are amazing and help break up long text. I will always enjoy The Magic Tree House series, no matter how old I am.

    Another MTH read aloud. Even though my son is pretty much too old for this series, he loves them for nostalgia's sake more than anything especially if it's been a few months since we read one. He's decided we need to finish the entire series, and it's going to be tricky since the story line has branched off, and the books have been renumbered. We're still not fans of the renumbering. I understand it but it's also really confusing for kids who have older copies of the books lying around. Another MTH read aloud.

    Jack an Annie experience a hurricane in Texas in 1900. They saved by a woman named Rose and her baby girl, Lily. They make it to a school run by nuns called the Ursuline Academy. Jack, Annie and the nuns helped save people all night until the water receded. Almost everything had been destroyed, many people died or we're missing. But, they rebuilt and pressed forward. Love learning about history with my son. Jack an Annie experience a hurricane in Texas in 1900. They saved by a woman named Rose and her baby girl, Lily.

    I didn't like this book because I don't like hurricanes. The hurricane in this book was the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. After the hurricane, nothing was left in Texas except for Ursuline Academy, but I think a hotel was not destroyed. The hotel's name was Tremont House Hotel where people hid from the hurricane.

    The books in this series are just so perfect as read-alouds with your kids. My boys love history and they love chapter books, so it's a perfect fit for us. This one was no exception with plenty of action, a little suspense, and a lot of history. The Magic Tree House series is always a winner in our house.

    Growing up I loved reading the Magic Tree House series and they are still coming out with new books! This version was so interesting to read because it talks about hurricanes in Texas and the kids can relate to this because of Hurricane Harvey in 2018. I think this is a good introduction into chapter books for students!

    This is my first magic tree house book. I wish I'd had this series when I was growing up. A touch of magic transports Jack and Annie back to Galveston, Texas just before the 1900 hurricane hits. I researched this hurricane a lot for another project, and Ms. Osborne taught me some things I did not know. Recommended to early readers who like history and don't mind a little magic on the side.

    In this book, the two main characters, Annie and Jack, go on an adventure back in time to Texas in the 1900s. A flood occurs throughout the city and they rush with many other to go help. As the storm grows closer and closer, they face many problems but have much hope to push through. I enjoyed this book. I think that it creates a good story that is easy to follow along with. It also has very real stories that make it more enjoyable for the readers. I would use this book in an elementary classroo In this book, the two main characters, Annie and Jack, go on an adventure back in time to Texas in the 1900s.

It can also be used for their own template for creative writing to which could make it an active reading lesson.

    I read this to my son trying to get him hooked on a series. He might still be a little immature for it. It's really hard to figure out why he's so reluctant. Any day now I hope he will love reading. I read this to my son trying to get him hooked on a series. He might still be a little immature for it. It's really hard to figure out why he's so reluctant.
