Reading Guide for Magic Tree House and Story of the World

My middle kiddo LOVED the Magic Tree House books, and they're a great way to get kids interested in history.    I decided to see how much it was possible to line up the Magic Tree House Stories to Story of the World.  I knew it wouldn't be possible to have everything line up because Magic Tree House books don't go in chronological order, and they do have story arcs (sub-series within the greater series) that go together and are nice to read in order.

I came up with several schedules to align with Volumes 1 and 2 of SOTW.   For Volume 1 I made one schedule including ALL the books, excluding the Merlin Missions (though 13 of the books you would read after finishing that SOTW volume, and only one of those left aligned with Volume II).   I did another schedule that just included the story arcs that had books which directly related to SOTW.   I did the same for Volume II, but didn't try to fit in all the books that time, and also did a separate schedule for Merlin Missions since more of those books related to that time period.   You can find the printable schedules at the links below.... (you can only access these by computer, not via most phones).
