Editorial Reviews

The Magic School Bus is off on a roller-coaster ride through our insides and anybody could be the next field trip! As Ms. Frizzle leads the way, the class takes an action-packed journey through Arnold's digestive system, a pulsating excursion through Ralphie's bloodstream, and an exciting exploration through the Ralphie Robot to learn about bones, joints and muscles. Their valiant vehicle can go anywhere and be anything, so each field trip is an awesome adventure. Includes three 30-minute TV episodes: For Lunch; Inside Ralphie; and Flexes Its Muscles.

I homeschool (unschool) my son, and the Magic School Bus series is GREAT for teaching kids science. We have 4 DVD sets and a few VHS's.

If you're unfamiliar with the premise, the central characters are Ms. Frizzle (a teacher), her class, Liz the lizard and the Bus. Ms. Frizzle takes her class on crazy field trips, where Bus--and sometimes the kids!--experience a transformation so they can get closer to the action. (For example, become a bee or turning into water droplets.)

One of our most recent purchases was The Human Body and it's excellent as always. These three episodes cover various aspects of the human body:

*For Lunch - The digestive system

*Inside Ralphie - The circulatory system

*Flexes Its Muscles - Bones, Muscles and Joints

There is also a peek inside Map of the Human Body for kids to explore.

This CD runs about 80 minutes and is supposedly geared towards children 3-8. Personally, I think the age-appropriate range is more like 6-10 because of the complex concepts introduced.

However, if younger kids enjoy it--more power to them! It certainly can't hurt to introduce science to younger kids if the Magic School Bus holds their interest.

My 8-year old son really enjoys the series now (he didn't get into it when he was younger), so I use the Magic School Bus series to supplement our learning/experimenting with science principles. And, my son seems to love The Human Body; in fact, he's watching it right now!

Beware - these are NOT new episodes, just new to DVD. The shows included are "For Lunch", "Inside Ralphie", and "Flexes Its Muscles". The episodes are excellent, as ever. And you can select English, French, or Spanish.

Format: DVD
This DVD contains several of my favorites including For Lunch and Inside Ralphie. The trips through the human body are great for small children. I'm less thrilled with the Robot Ralphie episode... they always do the segment at the end that clarifies things that had to be simplified to do the show. In general, this works well. However, the Robot Ralphie episode dives into the skeleton, muscles/tendons, but ignores the brain's role in motion. Normally, I can buy into the things they omit for the sake of finishing the lesson, but this one was way too big of an omission for me, and I spent quite a while with my 4yr old talking about how a toaster is not a suitable "brain" for a robot, but a computer could be. Putting the brain as a "footnote" in the end segment didn't seem appropriate to me.

Overall though, a pleasure to watch as usual. The first two episodes more than make up for my annoyance with the third. The kids love them.

The Magic School Bus series is highly engaging and educational. Ms Frizzle, the intrepid teacher with amazing ideas takes her class of young and curious explorers on three fun field trips: in "For Lunch", the class takes a trip through Arnold's digestive system, in "Inside Ralphie", the class go on an unforgettable excursion through Ralphie's bloodstream, and in "Flexes Its Muscles", the gang explore a robot to learn about bones, joints and muscles.

The total running time is about 80 minutes, and the language options are English, Spanish and French. Though this series was made sometime in the early 90s, the themes are still part of school curriculum today, and this is a wonderful series to inculcate love of science in children. I've not come across another series such as this for making science fun and engaging for young children

The best review I can provide is the excitement in my 2 1/2 year old daughter's eyes when we put this DVD on for her to watch. It's educational and useful for teaching younger kids science and mathematics. In this case, the subject is the human body. This DVD in the series includes an episode that explains how your body fights colds, how it digests food and how your muscles and bones work. Each episode also has a Q and A at the end that clears up some dramatic license used in the series. I think it's a great introduction to the sciences. The animation is of course a little crude compared to today's digital animation but that doesn't detract from the show. Highly recommend this one.

This is a fun way to teach 1st graders about the body. It opens up discussions and the students are really interested.
