    This is a really useful post – we’re now through with the Magic Tree House (part of me says ‘thank god!’ and although I am familiar with some of the books on your list, most are new and I look forward to reading them with my daughter.

    I also wanted to point out a book that would make a nice addition to your list: Ramani, Madhvi. Nina and the Travelling Spice Shed. Thanks.
