Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
We've read all of the Magic School Bus picture-books that we can find and now we're working our way through the chapter books, too. We just love the Friz and her class; the characters feel like old friends to us.

This story takes us to the age of the dinosaurs. It has a lot of factual information about the different dinosaurs that lived during different periods of time. There's a lot of excitement and danger in this tale and we enjoyed reading it together.

It was a fun way of learning more about dinosaurs. I read it to my 5 year old, and while some of the information was advanced for her, I liked the pairing of fiction and non-fiction.

"My favorite part was Liz, the crazy lizard, rescued Ralphie from the giant dinosaur."

Always a good teaching tool but not alway effective for just reading, Magic School Bus sometimes takes too much time to stop the story and give information. All the sidebars can also be distracting, but elementary teachers seem to love the books anyway and I suppose the kids do too.

I read this book as a second grade readaloud before the students begin a research project on dinosaurs. I like it because it has a nice mix of adventure and facts for the students.

Review by 5yo: I learned that you should stay away from some dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are real but not alive anymore. Are dinosaurs dead? Yes. Are dinosaurs alive? No.
