Product Description

From Amazon

Traveling back in time from the rumbling thunderstorms of present-day Frog Creek, Pennsylvania, to the booming of Civil War cannonballs near Richmond, Virginia, Jack and Annie set out on their 21st Magic Tree House adventure. The mysterious Morgan le Fay, magical librarian of Camelot, the long-ago kingdom of King Arthur, has left the brother and sister a message in their magic tree house, asking for their help saving Camelot. "Please find these four special kinds of writing for my library: Something to follow, Something to send, Something to learn, Something to lend." Jack and Annie enthusiastically transport themselves to a field near the fighting, and soon are enlisted as volunteer nurses assisting none other than Clara Barton, legendary "Angel of the Battlefield," as she drives her horse-drawn ambulance right onto the battlefields to help save wounded soldiers--including one with a very special connection to Jack and Annie.

Mary Pope Osborne's tremendously popular Magic Tree House series launches into a new realm, as Jack and Annie are challenged to save Camelot. Young readers will effortlessly learn the basics of Civil War history, while losing themselves in another gripping tale that has turned many a nonreader into a bookworm. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new Adventure Oct. 21 2002
Having taught 2nd graders who enjoyed the Magic Tree House series books as read alouds last year, I decided to embark on a new adventure with the tree house books, this time choosing to read #21 Civil War on Sunday. Like the previous books, the two main characters, Jack and Annie, are transported through time via a magic tree house that only they are able to see. In Magic Tree House #21, Jack and Annie are sent to fullfill the task of finding a special piece of paper with writing of "something to follow". After discovering a civil war book in the tree house and wishing to go there, Jack and Annie are soon transported back to Civil War times as they encounter Nurse Clara Barton and her field hospitals. Throughout the remainder of the book, Jack and Annie spend their time helping Clara and the other nurses care for the wounded soldiers. Jack soon realizes that war is not a glorious event as he had once thought. The book interestingly ends with a close personal connection to Jack and Annie.
After having read previous Magic Tree House books written by Mary Pope Osborne, I was quite surprised to find her writing a children's book on such a complicated subject as the Civil War. I was skeptical the children would be able to understand and relate to the subject of the Civil War. However, my skepticism was quickly put to ease. Ms. Osborne does a very nice job of presenting an "overview" of the Civil War. She easily relates the Civil War to children through Jack's own personal feelings of what war is. This is an excellent book for children 8-9 years of age. Through its broad use of dialogue, language, and illustrations, children (and teachers) will quickly want to read of Jack and Annie's next adventures in Magic Tree House #22 Revolutionary War on Wednesday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Oct. 27 2001
"Civil War On Sunday" is where the Magic Tree House whisks Jack and Annie back to the Civil War, and they become nurses helping a famous nurse, named Clara Barton. The "ambulence" is neat, and meeting John, the drummer boy, and later learning he was Jack and Annie's great-great-great-grandfather was a big surprise to me. What also surprised me is that Mrs. Osborne had more that 20 books. But now that doesn't surprise me since her books are so wonderful! So enjoy reading this.
