Did I enjoy this book: This is the first “chapter book” that we read to our nearly 3-year-old son. We read it over the course of three nights (bedtime story), and he loves it! Polar Bears Past Bedtime is the twelfth of the Magic Tree House series, so the beginning of the story was a little confusing because we didn’t have any background knowledge about the series, but that didn’t detract from the story.
Would I recommend it: This is a good book for parents to read to kids with a good attention span. It would also be good for young readers (say, 2nd grade level) who are looking to read chapter books on their own.
About the book – from Goodreads: The Magic Tree House transports Jack and Annie to the freezing Arctic. There, they must solve the final riddle to become master librarians. But it’s not going to be easy–especially when they have cracking ice, a seal hunter, and a prodigious polar bear to deal with. Will they be able to solve the riddle before they get iced themselves?
