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

I homeschool my daughter and have been teaching her about habitats for science. When we came to food chains, I read this book every night for about a week to help her remember some of the things covered. This book is great because it does not just give facts about food chains in a usual boring, dry way. Rather it brings things to life as Ms. Frizzle once again takes her class on an outrageous field trip. One small fact your child/student will learn, "During photosynthesis, the light energy trapp ...more

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

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.

This book would be great to inspire a lesson about the food chain. In the class activity, each stude

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.

I learned that when plants or animals are eaten by other animals or humans energy is absorbed. It is a good science book if you want to learn about food chains- read it!
