Thank you, Mary Pope Osborne...

I didn't learn about Mary Pope Osborne with my first child or even in grad school. I have enjoyed getting to know about her work, though, through the eyes and ears of my second child, my 7 year old son, Jack. Her heroes are Jack and Annie and my Jack thinks they are just great. Her Magic Tree House books keep us both on the edge of our seats and we have a hard time reading just one chapter at a time. I hope she would be pleased to know that her imagination and gift for storytelling encouraged my son to read a chapter book by himself. He has started her latest book, Carnival at Candlelight, all by himself. It is a joy for him to be able to read to me.
