Informational, and Fun -- NOT Political!,
This review is from: The Magic School Bus And The Climate Challenge (Hardcover)
The Friz and her class take a trip to the Arctic after seeing Ms. Frizzle's old Geography book, which looks different before the effect of global warming.
The whole global warming issue has become fraught with political tension. I definitely believe that we are making unwise choices as a society, and this book presents the facts in a non-political way.
As all Magic School Bus books do -- it combines humor and scientific facts in an engaging way. Each page is chock full of information meted out in bite-sized chunks, almost like a comic book.
My 11 year daughter and my 5 1/2 year old son both enjoyed this book. My son was even able to spout back some facts to me when I asked him what he had learned from the book -- a couple of days later, even! He said, "Our electrical stuff gives off CO2, and that's bad for the earth."

But 'electrical stuff' does not give off CO2, and furthermore CO2 is good for the earth since it is a vital plant food. So you are pleased that you son's head has been filled with nonsense?

Just by talking (not to mention simply breathing), her son was giving off CO2. So he's bad for the earth too?
