My generic review of the Magic School Bus books -

We really love the series. This book doesn't have all the cartoony dialouge asides that the earlier books have. There are maybe a comment or two per page instead of full conversations. Some people hate that; I think I prefer it. The page is less busy.

These books clearly explain a certain topic. There are often additional activities at the end of the book for further learning.

We read these for 'fun' during picture book time and we read them when l...more

I was excited to use this book in my stars lesson but it just didn't have the info I was looking for. It defines stars, shows different sizes, but doesn't go into color or why we can't see them during the day or even why they twinkle. Still, it has a place in the science center.
don't be bossy and be honest

This was one fabulous and very informing read. In this story, Ms. Frizzle takes her classmates to outer space to help them find out all about the stars. The classmates find it hard to believe that stars can be so old but discover that even a star that is two million years old is still a very young star. While they are in space, Horace Cope, the tv star, helps to lead them through their adventure with Ms. Frizzle. They discuss the gas and dust in the air as well as the age of some of the other st...more

We've read so many of the stories in the Magic School Bus series - and our girls have loved them all. Sometimes they can be a bit of a pain to read aloud, especially if there is a lot of dialogue or extraneous notes, but we still enjoy reading them together and they are so interesting that it makes science fun. I love that! In this story, we learn a bit about stars. And while it's just a tiny fraction of the information available about stars, it helps to reinforce what they've already learned (f...more

3.5 stars. Not one of her better books, but nice supplement for our space unit.
Little Miss and the Legomeister
I love the Magic School Bus books. I've read quite a few over the years. Legomeister loved them a couple of years ago. He still checks them out sometimes, but he doesn't ask me to read them to him anymore. Now it's Little Miss who requests them.

In this one, the Magic School Bus kids decided to buy a star, and visit them to decide which one they should get.

This is an awesome book to do a character study in. Since there are many Magic School bus books, you can use these books as an introduction to many different scientific concepts. This book would be a great book to introduce stars and what consists inside a star. This book can be used in any grade level.
Amy Olson
The Magic School Bus book series are great double duty books that work in literacy and in science! The Magic School Bus Sees Stars explores stars in a kid friendly writing. Common reading strategies like predicting, doing a picture walk, inferring etc. can all be incorporated in this book.

I'm rating all the Magic School Bus series. We've read these for years. I love the fun way they teach the girls different science concepts. Great vocabulary expanders.
Andrea Spurling
All of the magic school Bus books are great. I like reading the book and then watching the movie. These are great children's books.
Amanda Stacy
A great book to teach about stars in 3-5. It has great content about defining the stars and what they look like.
The Magic School Bus books are educational in a cute and fun way. My kids get hooked on them over and over again.
Loved watching this TV show as a kid. I feel like I learned so much from the books and the show!
