Summary: Ms. Frizzle is a bus driver who is always giving her students a wild adventure. On this adventure in the sky they encounter a two storms. The two storms they face are a hurricane and a tornado. While in these storms one little boy is lost. Will Ms. Frizzle be able to save the day?
Personal reaction: I’ve always really loved the magic school bus and in this wild book not only is the imaging brought to life, but it helps get a better understanding of how ugly a storm can be.
1. Have the students write down what they know about hurricanes
2. Have the students point out text that indicates there is a hurricane

This book is about a class of students that shrink inside a hurricane to discover what they do. The book is full of their journey and interlaced with facts along the way.
This is a good science fiction because while there is information that is true, the majority of the story follows this magic bus.

Okay, Ms. Frizzle gets an automatic 5 stars. I have always loved the Magic School Bus series, finding them extremely educational. Along with learning via the text, the illustrator has put side information into the text. It may be a bit wordy and busy with all that's going on, but I love it. I learned a lot from it. ( )

This is a book that mixes a non-fiction topic into a narrative format. Specifically, the book contains information about hurricanes that is in the perfect format for building background knowledge in children. As a research book, I'm not sure that the book is all that helpful. Simply, the information is not organized in a way that makes it easily accessible. At the same time, I think children would be engaged in the story, pictures, and format of the book, which makes it good for building background knowledge. This book is part of a large series of Magic School Bus books on a wide variety of topics.

I used to love this series as a kid. The authors ability to combine the information while also making it fun and a good read. The book challenges the students to think about academia while also improving their reading skills. I also like how busy the pages are. There is plain text, dialogue, and sticky notes on the side of the page that go into great detail about the subject. The pictures in the book are also in depth.There are quite a bit of diagrams and pictures along with the original pictures that tell the story line. The last thing that I like about this book is the plot line development. The book is not just informational, there is a story line with the kids and Mrs.Frizzle. ( )
