The Treehouse Series is a series of children’s books. They help children learn listening and reading skills. The story follows characters Andy and Terry who live in a large treehouse. It starts out having 13 stories, and it gets taller with every book. They are trying to finish the book on time, but there are many distractions that they must face first. They are from Australia, but now you can buy them in America as well. There are many lessons you can teach with these books. There is a slight difference in the titles between the Australian and American versions. The Australian title says “Storeys,” and the American version says “Stories.”
The characters of Andy and Terry parallel the author, Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. The books are designed to be happening in real time while the characters are trying to finish the book. They mean the book to be more like a trip to the theatre instead of just reading a story.
Griffiths and Denton started working on children’s books together in 1997 with their classic, Just Tricking! There are now six books in that series. They also have a book called The Cat on the Mat is Flat. These books are teaching children all around the world about reading and listening and comprehension.
What Can These Books Teach Your Child?
These books can teach your children many lessons in listening, reading, and so much more. They can be used to teach children to evaluate key ideas from the area and come to conclusions. The books are organized into chapters, so you can decide how many chapters to cover per lessons.
You can test your students on each chapter to gauge their reading comprehension. During discussions, encourage questions about the topic as they go through the story. You can start a discussion about the fantasy aspect of the books by asking if these situations can really happen.
There are four steps involved to get a class discussion going about the series. They should come to the discussion prepared with all necessary materials, then you need to establish rules to drive the discussion. Everyone needs to respond to questions, and then you can draw conclusions from the book.
These books can help cover standards of the curriculum. Hopefully, they can even inspire your students to write their own stories.
