These books are by no means great literature; they are formulaic and simple.
However, my kids have learned VAST amounts from these books and they have been a springboard for learning about, among other things, the 1906 SF earthquake, volcanoes, constellations, paper-making, Native Americans, the rainforest, the Arctic/Antarctic, Egypt ...
The kids LOVE them. Jack and Annie are definitely friends in our household.
