The classroom is decorated as Dinosaur Land, but Ms. Frizzle-inspired by an archeological dig-craves a more authentic experience.

If you like dinosaurs, then this book is for you! Packed with information about dinosaurs of all kinds with the craziness you'd expect from Ms. Frizzle.

I feel like children would really like this book because it has a lot of dinosaur facts throughout along with their pictures. Magic School Bus books always make topics seem so fun to learn about. The only negative thing about this book is every page is very busy with lots of side notes and dialogue boxes- so be aware that this may not a good book to do a read aloud to a classroom.

The magic shcool bus takes the kids back in time to the time of the dinosaurs (well, several time periods). The kids see quite a few dinos and find the maiasaura nests they are looking for. I really enjoyed this one and I felt like I was actually seeing the dinos in more of a context than the typical non-fiction book where dinos are pictured in isolation.
