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 nephew loves these books and will be thrilled to get such a unique one. He just loves science and doesn't mine history behind science, so this will be perfect for him. There is just so much packed into the book, it will keep him busy for a couple weeks hopefully. Plus, this seems to have new information not found in other 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.

We love all the Magic School Bus books. This is a great one, while different structure than most, which teaches about great scientists and the scientific method. My three-year old loves it although it is really targeted at older ages. I'm sure she will continue getting more out of it over time.

K picked this book up from his school library. I have always loved The Magic School Bus and K has just started enjoying the books.
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!

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.

Our grandchildren enjoy reading any and all of the original Magic School Bus books, over and over again. They are a fascinating way of 'sneaking' in some scientific thinking in a really imaginative way. The whole series makes a great gift for any under 10 children.
