The Magic School Bus - Space Explorers by Eva Moore is part of the the Magic School Bus series. In this book the class travels with their teacher Ms. Frizzle into outer space. They learn the order of the planets and the different atmospheres of each one. They learn why each planet has an atmosphere like it does and about the moons that rotate around each planet.
The illustrations in all Magic School Bus books are very vibrant and interesting to look at. I remember enjoying these books, and movie

A seemingly simple trip to Mars turns into a trip around our entire solar system as Ms. Frizzle and the kids teach the reader about space.

I never read the Magic School Bus books as a child, but as a teacher now for young learners it's come across my path, and it's one of the most enjoyable children's books I've read. I very much enjoyed how seamlessly science and adventure were intertwined, and I appreciated the clarification in the back about what would not have been possible in real life. Aft

Another great book, but I realize that after reading it, I don't remember some facts that I found interesting. Maybe there are too many facts or they should be "discussed" more in the book. This being said, were I to teach about space, I would definitely use this books with my students as a springboard or completion feast!

Even though there are few pictures and it is a chapter book. My daughter has asked for this book over and over again (only 2 1/2). She finds it very enjoyable and asks me questions over and over about it. If she ranked it, the book would get 5 stars. However I'm only going to give it a 4 stars, I don't think it was amazing.

I love these kind of books because they are educational however students don't realize it. This book explains our solar system and details the planets individually through a fun story. This would be a great book to read when studying the planets. The book is definitely for younger readers.

This is one of the first Magic School Bus chapter book we've read. And to be honest, our girls didn't like it as much. I think it's because there are so many fewer pictures and the format is different. It's a longer book, so they could cover more than what is normally encapsulated in the TV tie-in adaptations, but it's similar to others we've read in this series. We will likely read more of these chapter books as we come across them, but at the stage they're at (5 and almost 7), our girls prefer ...more

Review by 5yo: One part is funny about this book because they were enjoying jumping but there was an accident that one of the people did and it knocked the rock collector Rocco robot dog. It pressed the fly button and he flew up saying "yap yap yap yap". It flew off to the sun and they did something and it flew off again. And they finally got it and they went back to the classroom.

Really like both this book, and the series. It reminds M-Tear of her year 4 classroom. Everyday we'd have reading. My teacher had this long bookcase with 'The Magic School Bus' and 'The Baby-Sitters Club: Little Sister' and so many others. Sigh... how she loved it.

Anyway, great book, nice illustrations, awesome facts and a great trip down memory lane.

During this Magic School Bus book, the class takes a trip to space and explores the different planets. While exploring, the class finds out that each planet has a different atmosphere and gravity. Again, I would use this book to integrate language arts and science. I would read this book as an introduction to a lesson on gravity.
Kevin Evans
A lot of students love these books because they are familiar with the shows. This particular book is about the class field trip into outer space. There are all kinds of facts about the planets and other things involving outer space. This would be great for a science unit.
Callie Risse
In this Magic School Bus book. Mrs. Frizzle takes her class to outer space! There are tons of facts on every page of this book. Children will learn so much before they even realize they're learning!
