The Magic School Bus in the Time of the Dinosaurs is about Ms. Frizzle and her class. They go on a dinosaur dig, but it gets changed into a time travel trip back to the time of dinosaurs. The students learn much more about them by seeing the dinosaurs in action.

The book is accurate and authentic because it covers different ages and different dinosaurs and how scientists think that they lived. The information is presented in an organized way. The book starts out at the beginning of the school day and goes on through out the day. It doesn't skip around through out the day. The book is appealing to children because it is colorful and having the book set in a classroom with a teacher and students will allow for children to be able to relate to it. The author's writing style is clear. It is easy to read and is easy to follow.

This book is good to use in a dinosaur lesson. It goes through different dinosaurs and will teach the children about them.
