Earth Day Series Post #5
In honor of Earth Day we have created a series dedicated to inspire environmental awareness and conversation between you and your kiddos. This book will surely do the trick! I received a copy of The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen to review and loved it. This book is filled with easy to learn facts about climate change. Be sure to check out our Green Giveaways to enter a chance to win this delightful book and an Organic “Go Green” Scholastic t-shirt.
The book starts out when Ms. Frizzle brings an old book of the world to class that she had when she was a little girl. Then she whisks the children off in the flying Magic School Bus to tour the world. The children are amazed at the differences in what they see happening on the earth today and what was in the book years ago when “The Friz” was only nine years old.
The difficult subject matter is presented in a way that my four and seven year old boys found highly entertaining. As always The Magic School Bus is fun and beautifully illustrated. Your children will come away from this book educated and inspired in the different ways they can make a difference in the greenhouse effect. My boys got out coloring materials and started drawing up plans on how they can help teach other kids to use less energy. I am overjoyed!
