Apparently the more books they wrote about the Magic School Bus the better they got. As we've read several now and it seems the earlier ones were BAD,...but the later ones are back to the great books we have come to enjoy!

This one the class learns (along with the reader and-or listener) about cold blooded animals. How they hibernate, why they hibernate, why they do what they do if their bodies get to cold or to hot etc. It teaches in a very informative way that the reader-listener doesn't realiz
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
This book is about a teacher named Mrs. Frizzle and her magic school that can turn into any object that breathss or that has cells. So as Mrs. Frizzle and her class takes field trips on whatever topic disscussed, she does not only take the kidz but she teaches along the way too.

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.

(view spoiler) I think this one might have been Legomeister's favorite. They learn about the characteristics of reptiles.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
Our girls adore the Magic School Bus series of books (and the TV shows, too). This book is a great introduction to cold-blooded animals, specifically reptiles, and the differences between warm and cold-blooded animals. We enjoyed reading this story together.

Mrs. Frizzles class pet Liz the lizard is missing so the class goes on a hunt to find her. In the process they learn what reptiles are and what it means to be a cold-blooded animal.
This was a fun book with knowledge learning information and a twist at the end.
