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.

With this one there was so much information written within the bubbles that is seemed to deter K from actually listening to the story.
The Magic School Bus series is just an awesome series of books because you learn so much information on certain subjects that it makes you want to learn in a fun way. When the kids of Mrs. Fizzle's class go to a trip to the museum well what do you expect it will be an adventure that scientists from the past come to life and give a bit of information on their selves and what they have discovered.
Perfect read for all but especially good to have in the classroom!
