Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

It has been 20 years since the publication of The Magic School Bus at the Waterworks (1986), the first title in the groundbreaking series that has covered a variety of science topics, including geology, weather, dinosaurs, bees, and the human body. This installment widens the lens to encompass the whole field of science. As usual, the story begins in the classroom, where the students are agonizing over the upcoming science fair. A field trip to the nearby science museum provides inspiration, and in the galleries, the class discovers a model school bus, which conveys the crew back through time, where they meet famous scientists, such as Galileo and the Curies, and witness pivotal discoveries. This has all the hallmarks of the winning series: humorous cartoon speech bubbles; instructive, funny, appealing illustrations; and clear language that explains basic concepts without condescension. An excellent introduction to scientists and what they do, this title cements the series' long-standing reputation as one of the most exciting, approachable elementary-school science resources.

Usually the magic school bus books offer excellent explanations of natural phenomena, but this one goes a little further and explains how scientists think and work using famous scientists as examples. Thanks to this book, my daughter understands what a hypothesis is and that it must be tested. Her favorite is the explanation of how Pasteur devised an experiment that proved bacteria in blood cause disease, not just the blood itself. Other scientists presented include Galileo, Newton, the Curies, and Einstein. All this in the fun, Frizzled manner of the magic school bus series.

My son absolutely loves this book. He enjoys the Magic School Bus book series, but he especially likes this book which teaches him about famous scientists and their relative discoveries. This is educational fun at its best if your child enjoys learning from books.

This is an excellent book about some of the history of science and famous scientists for children. I purchased this for my granddaughters, ages 8 and 6, and they love it, also wanted it read to them repeatedly! I also enjoy the wonderful drawings and captions.

This guided tour through the history of modern science is colorful, entertaining & engaging. The book introduces the scientific method & traces the development of major scientific ideas from heliocentrism to Einstein. Reinforces the importance of curiosity and discovery. My four year-old is fascinated by Galileo and Pasteur! Highly recommended.
