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."
Like it or not, global warming is a hot topic, and it will affect the younger generation the most. So why not turn to the teacher kids like the most, Ms. Frizzle! Only the Friz can boil all the hoopla down to the scientific facts in a fun and informative way.
With trademark simplicity and wit, Joanna Cole explains why the earth is getting warmer, and Bruce Degen's bright, action-filled illustrations make the science easy to understand and fun to learn. This team brings a new, improved understanding to climate change, engaging kids and empowering all. Teachers will cheer!
Kids already love the Magic School Bus, and the love to do what's right by the planet. At last, a way to teach the curriculum and make an impact!
The Magic School Bus books never disappoint. I'm glad the author chose to tackle the subject of climate change, especially when there are so many people who don't believe that a problem exists. What I like the most, besides the funny Ms. Frizzle and her smart, smart students, is that it provides opportunities for children to get involved by making small changes right at home. Plus, the illustrations are awesome. And Frizz's outfits are super wacky; I suppose she's a fashionista in her own way!
Lulu, my 6 year old, likes to see the kids preparing for the school play. She says the book should be called the Magic School Plane!
Coco, age 4, likes the air clothes dryer, and the little boy who conserves by not doing his homework!

Joanna Cole loved science as a child. "I always enjoyed explaining things and writing reports for school. I had a teacher who was a little like Ms. Frizzle. She loved her subject.Read more ›

I bought this at the library yesterday and just read it to my 7-year-old. The storyline is weak and unoriginal and the pictures are frightening and depressing. Read morePublished on May 8, 2014 by Magic Flute
