The Tree House That Jack Built did not work for me. Then again, I'm not usually a fan of any adaptation of the House that Jack Built. This one had potential in the beginning. But with the introduction of the parrot, well, the text just lost it. It lost the rhythm and the rhyme and the patterning....

A cute story about the ever-evolving list of things that take place strung Jack's treehouse, from animals to nature, and even the passing of the day. Neo learned about hammocks and would like one for himself, mainly because you tie them up, like in a fort. A great story to fuel his dreams.

A cute little parody of the original House that Jack Built story. The story is punchy and the illustrations come alive like only Mark Teague can.

The Illustrations were amazing.

In my opinion, the illustrations were better than the text.
There are too many words per page for it to be read alone.
This is clearly a bed time book for parents to read to students.
That doesn't make it bad.
It just doesn't fit into my classroom library very well.
Maybe I need to st...

The book talks about all of the animals that come and visit the tree house (a dog, a cat, a parrot, a lizard, a whale, and many more). Once all of the animals arrive at the tree house...

Love the pictures. Love the imagination. The text starts out great, but then the rhythm and rhyme get very jilty. And it starts to feel like its dragging. It could end well in one or two places, but it keeps going. (Though how it goes works if this is a bedtime story.) And then the last page was...

WOW!! Who wouldn't want to live in Jack's tree house, overlooking the sea, with all of the colorful animals and remarkable gadgets on every page? I've always enjoyed Mark Teague's illustrations, going back to How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night, and he is certainly in excellent form here. The panels...

Tree houses are always fun, but Jack's is massive! The story begins with the same story line as the fly goes by, that the lizard ate, that the cat chased, that the dog... that had an ok rhythym, but something was missing. It was funny that Jack read all his animals the same exact book you the rea...
