Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trust the bestselling science series of all time to get down to the facts on global warming, so kids can understand the crisis - and how they can help solve it.

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!

Review:

"In another humorous outing, Ms. Frizzle's class returns to get 'really up-to-date information' on global warming for their school play. Readers follow as the kids travel to the Arctic to see melting ice, view worldwide effects of climate change (which appear in comic book — like panels), and catch rides on sunbeams to learn about the greenhouse effect. Notebook pages with the students' notes round out this fun and fact-filled adventure. Ages 7 — 10." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

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!

A note from Joanna Cole:

While I was writing The Magic School Bus and the Climate Change Challenge, all I could think about was the kids who will read it. I wanted to give them hope. More than that, I wanted to tell them how their own actions as children can help solve the crisis of global warming. You will see a real blueprint for this in the book.

Our young readers will be voters before we know it, and educating them today will influence their actions as they grow older. Wouldn't it be wonderful if The Magic School Bus could help change the climate for the better?
