Jump on the Magic School Bus and come explore wild weather! You’ll start high in the clouds and then see the water cycle first-hand, after which you’ll be blown around in wind, hurricanes, and tornadoes. Between thunderstorms and snowstorms, freezing weather and hot weather, this trip is sure to keep you on your toes. You’ll even learn how weather is forecasted and how the climate is changing.
Like other books in “The Magic School Bus Presents” series, this educational book uses all the well-known Magic School Bus characters to present a wide range of interesting information in a very appealing format. The book has a consistent color scheme and layout, which includes on every page a title, the main commentary, a “Frizzle Fact,” a short book-report summary, and several fascinating photographs with additional fun facts, all of which is written in very clear and understandable language. The final pages also include some more interesting facts and a helpful “Words to Know” page. This series would be an excellent addition to a classroom library and also a great educational tool to use at home.
