    " Esha & I read this together. Great book for her! I love this series for kids. We chose this as our read together since it is an Olympiad summer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benji | 1/2/2014

    " I liked this book because I found out lots of things including that girls were not allowed to take part in the olympics in ancient greece. They were not even allowed to watch the games. It was exciting when the white horse saved Jack and Annie. Annie saw the horse in the stars when they got back home. She did not want to leave the horse when they were in Ancient Greece. "

    " The Magic Tree House books are wonderful for teaching all kinds of topics. This one is about Jack and Annie, two adventurous friends, who travel back to the very first olympics and witness the games first hand. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 11/19/2013

    " Another Magic Tree House, #17 - my kids enjoy them but they are getting rather predictable. Emily liked that Pegasus was in this story, and Robbie liked hearing that girls were not allowed at the Olympics in ancient Greece. I do like how a few facts are thrown into these books so children can learn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Smith | 11/19/2013

    " Mary Pope Osborne covers Plato, Pegasus and equality all at a level kids can understand and get excited about in this adventure when Jack and Annie travel back to the first Olympic games. It makes one long to have a Master Librarian card :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lydia Moses | 8/8/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra Landay | 4/15/2013

    " I like this book. I thought the author did an excellent job of using a story that would engage children while teaching facts about ancient Greece. I also thought the way she had Jack take notes could help the new reader think about what is important and worth remembering. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 3/24/2013

    " One of my favorites in the Magic Tree House series! Great for children to experience the magic of reading while still learning new facts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah | 3/21/2013

    " Magic Tree House books are cute. The olympics are neat thing. I think this gives a chance to understand what they really are! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Glen | 11/11/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Damos | 2/4/2012

    " Wonderful children's book. Perfect for the classroom, maybe Grade 1/2. Focuses on about 7 or 8 specific facts & incorporates them into an interesting context. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teri | 12/11/2011

    " These books have good kid appeal which is the only reason I give it 3 stars. My kids love them--but I find them truly mindnumbing. Great individual reading to supplement learning about ancient Greece--but don't torture yourself with the audio version of any of these books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shaurya | 7/19/2011

    " I can't belive that no girls were allowed at the olympics doing sports and boy are! "

    " Jack and Annie's 4th Mission is to go to Greece to retrieve a poem about Pegasus written by a woman/girl. In Ancient Greece it was a death penalty for a woman to read or write. Women/girls were not allowed to learn, to watch the Olympic Games or even participate. "

    " From my 7 year old daughter Jewell.

    I learned that girls weren't allowed to do a lot of things during the ancient Olympics. Also there were games that we still have today. All the athletes prayed to a statue of Nike before they competed in the games. "
