Read full description of the books:
I will always love this book. I saw it at my school's book fair in first grade and thought it was a picture book. I liked the bright colors and surfing kids, so I had my mom buy it for me along with another Magic Tree House: Dolphins at Daybreak, which my parents helped me read. Then I moved on to High Tide in Hawaii. Sixty pages. Ten chapters with a picture on each beginning page. It took me an entire week of reading by lamplight. Some of the words were hard. It took me a long time to figure out the Jack was laughing, not "lugging." Now, what exactly does a lug sound like? And the author's name, I discovered, was not "Mary Pop."
But I did get through it. That was the first chapter book I ever read on my own. A couple of months later, I had to pick out a take-home reading book from my teacher's learning to read shelf. I was supposed to select from my reading level. But there was Lions at Lunchtime, several levels above what I was supposed to read.
I took it anyways.
Next year, I told my mom about this wonderful series and she decided we needed to take a trip to the library. I tried to protest. The library only had kids books, I said, and grown-up books. Not these kinds of books. I was surprised to discover that the shelves to the right of the picture book area didn't house adult books. No, that's where MY books lived.
I began checking them out five at a time. There were only forty or so then, so it didn't take me long to get through them all. Except for Good Morning Gorillas. I held off on that one. I knew if I read that one, it would be all finished. And what would I do then?
I turned around. There were these other books, small, colorful, and abundant, just like the Magic Tree House books. I'd seen kids carrying them around at school. They were called Junie B. Jones.
So I mixed Junie in with Jack and Annie. And I just have to say, What kind of idiot puts a second grade series on the top shelf? I had to climb the shelves because the one stool in the library was always by the drinking fountain. I wasn't going to put my Magic Tree House books (bottom shelf, thank you very much) on the floor so I could lug that stupid stool halfway across the library.
After Junie B., I discovered the Cam Jansen series on the other side of the Magic Tree House shelf. Then the Bailey School Kids. And from there, I read "anything I can get my hands on," as Jack describes himself in Tornado on Tuesday. Why can I still remember exact lines?
At the end of second grade, we had to create a visual aid for our book reports. The girl next to me had drawn a picture of Junie B. thinking about chocolate milk in the first book.
I'd spent three hours creating a model of Harry and Voldemort dueling in the Goblet of Fire. Which is slightly bigger than Junie B. Jones. Eight years later and I'm still secretly pleased about that.
Thank you, Mary Pope Osborne, for turning me into a reader!
