Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Frizz does it again! A superb teaching tool and an inspiring and entertaining read for children. I used this and other MSB books for school science projects and Ms. Frizzle and the bus never once steered me wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love this book! The Magic School Bus series is a wonderful set of books for learning. It's fun to pair the books and shows together for different learners. Also love the different characters, and how there is a bit of humour incorporated to make the books fun. I have found that this book has kept kids interested in reading and learning as they always want to see what adventure if going to take place on any given day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Magic School Bus On the Ocean Floor(The Magic School Bus #5) Very interesting book! I learned some things too while reading this to my 3 year old. I love that it has dialog and narratives, so for my daughter I only used the dialog the first times we read it. After a few readings and being familiar with the dialog, she was able to enjoy the narratives as well.. As the class ventures up from the floor they learn about the reef and the ways human can help preserve it. They also encounter dolphins. Eventually their adventure comes to a radical end as the catch a wave and surf on the magic school bus to shore. This book is filled with a vast amount of information that any child would find interesting. Some awesome aspects of this book are the “Post-it note” sized sheets of paper that appear on every page. These notes contain definitions, classifications, and factual information about what they students encounter on their adventure.

On their journey through the ocean the class learns about various marine life creatures, sharks and the continental shelf. When the class finally reaches the deep depths of the oceans floor they discover the fish and life that is down there. As the class starts back up from the floor they learn about the reef and the ways humans can help preserve it.
