Scouts who become Magic Tree House Reading Warriors can earn a free patch

Fun and adventure don’t have to end when the camping trip is over.

Scouts can experience spellbinding, heart-racing excitement just by opening the latest book in the Magic Tree House series from Random House.

The best-selling series by Mary Pope Osborne follows Jack and Annie Smith, a brother and sister from the fictional small town of Frog Creek, Pa., as they embark on adventures through a magical tree house.

Jack and Annie have had many adventures through history, including crossing the Delaware River with George Washington, witnessing Jackie Robinson’s debut in Major League Baseball and helping rescue victims of the 1900 hurricane in Galveston, Texas.

In their latest adventure, Magic Tree House #31: Warriors in Winter, the siblings travel in time to meet the greatest warriors of all: the Romans.
