Rated 3 out of 5 by from In the Time of the Dinosaurs (The Magic School Bus #6) This was a very educational book with some imagination all about dinosaurs. The children hopped aboard their time machine school bus after trying to help some paleontologists and went back to the different periods of the dinosaur era. They saw many types of dinosaurs and experienced different periods. The book was very accurate and had a ton of information on each page. From the average words to the notes and picture the students drew on the sides of each page. The information was not as organized as I had hoped. It was kind of all over with speech bubbles and works on the sides of each page. Although it was all over the pictures and information would certainly be appealing to children. Joanna Cole presents her writing style in a clear way and the imagination needed for reading her book would present enthusiasm for any reader.
