Jack and Annie lead a perfectly normal life. Perfectly normal, that is, until they come across an abandoned tree house with the power to whisk the kids away to different times and places!

Whether they're exploring the ancient pyramids of Egypt—and helping out the ghost of an Egyptian queen—or crossing the Delaware with General George Washington, Jack and Annie are always ready for another adventure. More importantly, the facts they learn along the way always provide the keys to completing their quests. The siblings love to read up on any subject—whether it's to crack codes, solve riddles, or simply get out of scrapes.

And as readers follow along on each magical journey, they are introduced to all kinds of interesting information about different time periods, key historical figures, and various cultures and civilizations. With plenty of facts mixed in with tons of excitement, each book provides a great foundation of knowledge that supports future learning.

The Crossing: How George Washington saved the American Revolution by Jim Murphy

Leutze's familiar painting, Washington Crossing the Delaware, graces the cover of Murphy’s latest book, but the story begins before that dramatic event, when the Second Continental Congress appoints Washington to lead the army in June 1775. Profoundly aware of his personal limitations as a commander, Washington struggles to turn his initially unruly officers and troops into a well-disciplined fighting force before the formidable British army brings the war—and the young country—to an untimely end. Focusing on the Continental army’s progress from Washington’s appointment through the Battle of Princeton in January 1777, this book recounts military events, setbacks, and successes as the tide of the war slowly began to turn. Printed in relatively large type with wide-spaced lines, the text is clearly written and makes very good use of quotes. Text and illustrations, including maps and reproductions of period paintings and documents, are printed in shades of brown. Though sources are not provided for individual quotes, the excellent back matter includes a discussion of Leutze’s iconic painting, a time line of the Revolution, a list of Internet sites, and a lengthy partial list of books consulted. Murphy offers a refreshingly frank, vivid, well-researched account of a pivotal time in American history. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelanp
In 1723, Ben Franklin arrived in Philadelphia as a poor and friendless 17-year-old. Sixty-two years later, he stepped ashore in nearly the same spot—and was greeted by cannons, bells, and a cheering crowd. In this elegant, artwork-filled biography, groundbreaking author Russell Freedman explains how a runaway became a distinguished statesman, renowned author, world-famous scientist, and Founding Father of the United States of America.
