The classic title that started the award-winning series! Join Ms. Frizzle and her students as they follow the trail of water, from its sky-high source to the school bathroom sink on this wet and wild fieldtrip. After parking the school bus on a cloud and shrinking to raindrop size, Ms. Frizzle's class gets to see the waterworks from the water's point of view.

I gave this book a five out of five star rating. Ms. Frizzle takes her class on a trip to the water works where they learn about water conservation, the water cycle, the water purification system and pollution, as well as the water mains. The book implements story telling elements to a scientific text which makes it easier to follow as well as more fun to read. This book could be a useful guided reading book for teaching sequencing and critical thinking towards water and pollution. ( )

Our class really has bad luck.
"Before long, each kid was the size of a raindrop. In fact, each kid was in a raindrop. The drops began to fall.  Ms. Frizzle's class was raining!"
