SUMMARY: Food Chain Frenzy by Anne Capeci is a Magic School Bus Adventure. Arnold, the narrator, is telling the story of Ms. Frizzle's class going on a field trip to the science museum. Of course, MS. Frizzle has something other than the science museum in mind in order to teach her students about the food chain.
CRITIQUE: The book is authentic but accurate when it comes to the information conveyed to the reader. The Magic School Bus series helps to teach children because the books are written so...more

Food Chain Frenzy (The Magic School Bus) by Anne Capeci, is about Ms. Frizzle’s class taking a field trip to the science museum. This book teaches students about the ecosystem, eating habits, and about the food chain.

The illustrations in this book are fun and informative. The content in this book is very detailed but it is still easy enough for kids to be able to read and understand the material.

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
Our girls adore Magic School Bus and we've read every book we can get our hands on. This is a great chapter book; it is not too long, and still has lots of pictures. It offers a compreshensive look at food chains and food webs as well as the cycle of life. Our girls especially enjoyed solving the "Incredible Edibles Riddles" before the class did.

Overall, it's an entertaining and exciting story - the author really brings the science to life. We have read most of the books in this series and we w...more
The MSB chapter books are much better than the picture books. I never liked to read all the little captions and comments in the picture books. The chapter books include some side notes but I don’t feel obligated to read them. My DD and I had some great discussions about the food chain (natural and human-controlled) while reading this book. This book introduced a lot of new vocabulary and ideas to my 5YO.
Magic School Bus Chapter Books are not very interesting or well written. Their only redeeming quality is getting kids who like Magic School Bus picture books weaned off of them.
