This book is about Ms. Frizzle¿s class going on a field trop to explore electricity. Ms. Frizzle¿s class looks into electrons, atoms, and how electric currents are created. The class explores the town¿s power plant then moves throughout the town¿s power plant then through the town venturing through electrical lines, light bulbs, and even vacuum cleaners. The students arrive back in Mr. Frizzle¿s classroom safe and sound. This book is extremely over whelming. You truly have to read the book once by actually reading then go back and read all the side notes and diagrams. I also had a hard time getting into the book. I have seen so many Magic School Bus videos that the book moves way to slow fore me. I fell that for children trying to understand all of this at once would be too much.This book would be extremely helpful while teaching children about electricity. There is a lot of information within this book. You could even break this book down into the different objects it talks about such as a power plant, light bulb, and electric motor. Each of these could be a small lesson. There are also vivid illustrations to go along with the text which would be very helpful.
