Some of my favorite books that became available this year were the Star Wars Little Golden Books, which I purchased and have read repeatedly to my 6-year-old. I only bought the books coinciding with the original three Star Wars movies, and my daughter had “The Empire Strikes Back” almost memorized.
If you’re looking for the best books for kids, and you’ve moved on to chapter books, check out the Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne. Much as I love Star Wars, I was getting a little tired of the Star Wars books and was pleased to move on to Magic Tree House titles instead.
One of my older daughter’s teachers recommended Magic Tree House books years ago, so we already had a good supply of them to hand down to my younger daughter. They are quite enjoyable reads, even for grown-ups, and they educate and inform about historical events and people, as well as geography and science.
The Magic Tree House series features a young brother and sister who discover a treehouse in the woods near their house. It’s filled with books, and they can use the books and the treehouse to travel to various places and times. They also use the books to learn more about whatever time and place they travel to.
Mary Pope Osborne has been writing Magic Tree House books since 1992. She released Magic Tree House Super Edition #1: Danger in the Darkest Hour in 2015, and more Magic Tree House books are slated for release in 2016.
Following are some of Amazon’s picks for the best books of 2015. Which of the best books of 2015 have you read? What would be your picks for the best books of 2015?
