The Magic School Bus and The Climate Challenge - Review & Giveaway

Just in time for Earth Day comes the newest book in the Magic School bus series: The Magic School Bus and The Climate Challenge. Ms. Frizzle’s students are putting on a play about global warming, and they need some cold, hard facts. The Friz knows just where to find them! A hop on the Magic School Bus takes the kids on a whirlwind tour. From the Arctic to the equator, they see telltale signs of climate change. But to get the really big picture, the class has to get really small – so they can see exactly what is in the air and why it is making the world warmer. What they find gives them a real cause for concern!

Aimed at children ages 9-12, The Magic School Bus and The Climate Challenge introduces kids to the dangers of climate change without being too scary. It also gives concrete examples of what kids can do to try to decrease their carbon footprint and join together to make a diference. The fun, humorous writing style, along with the speech bubble and "lots of side notes" format, make the book enjoyable. Heck - I even enjoyed reading it all by myself! (And learned a few things too.)
