The Magic School Bus has long been a favorite in our home. Our personal library is filled with the many books, movies, science kits and more offered by The Magic School Bus series. I was, of course, thrilled when we were offered a chance to review one of the newest additions to the series: The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge.
From the first page this story my children were hooked. Ms. Frizzle takes the class on yet another amazing adventure, this time to explore the concept of Global Warming. With her wonderful sense of wit and humor, Joanna Cole brings this topic to life in a new and easy to understand way. Accompanied by amazingly bright and action filled illustrations, Bruce Degen truly brings the scientific concepts to life and makes it so much fun to learn!!
The pages are not only filled with wonderful information but also many challenges to children offering ways they can make small changes to help affect this worldwide problem. After reading it numerous times, I have found my own children reminding us to turn off extra lights and to unplug unnecessary items when not in use. The truth held in this little book really made an impact and my little ones are now proponents of change in our small sphere of influence.
About The Magic School Bus and The Climate Challenge:
Ms. Frizzle’s students are putting on a play about global warming, and they need some cold, hard facts. The Friz knows just where to find them! A hop on the Magic School Bus takes the kids on a whirlwind tour.
From the Arctic to the equator, they see telltale signs of climate change. But to get the really big picture, the class has to get really small – so they can see exactly what is in the air and why it is making the world warmer.
What they find gives them a real cause for concern!
