The book I chose to write a book review for is The Magic School Bus at the Waterworks. The author of this book is Joanna Cole. The illustrator of this book is Bruce Degen. I chose this book because I liked the water works and it has facts. In this science book, Ms. Frizzle's class went on a field trip. In the beginning Ms. Frizzle's class went on a field trip to the water works. In the middle, they got evaporated and went up into a cloud. In the end Ms. Frizzle's class came out of a faucet. The big idea in this story is all teachers are the same. A great quote from the author is "It was getting colder too. All around us, drops of water began to form. And as the drops got bigger we got smaller." The best part is when Ms. Frizzle's class rose up into the air. I would recommend this awesome book to a science person like me! Ages 7-10.

Summary: whats seemed to be an ordinary day in class turns out to be the ad venture of a life time for mrs frizzles class.Mrs frizzle takes the class on a field trip on her magic school bus. her magic school buss turns in to everything the children need to be safe like a boat an under water submarine and even a hot air balloon threw out the story the children learn about the water works and take notes on what they learned, and they all get to experiencing the water purification system from the inside.Personal reaction:I loved this book I use to read the magic school bus as a child and I would always learn so much and be amazed.Classroom extension:1. I can teach the students about evaporation threw this book i can have them sit out a glass of water and we can watch it every day as the water evaporates2. as the water evaporates the children can use math to measure how much water has evaporated since its starting point.

This book went along great with what the students in my class were learning. They have been studying the water system for the past couple of weeks and this gave them a different way of learning it. The book is about the class getting the strangest teacher and how the other classes get to go on fun field trips like the zoo, but they have to go to water works. They flow through the water cycle in the book and end up coming out of a faucet at their school. The students soon decided that the water works was not such a bad field trip after all.

A teacher takes her students on an exciting field trip to learn about the water cycle. The children become part of the water cycle to gain a better understanding. The children learn different interesting facts about water, and are able to draw the water cycle. The children think there teacher is weird, but they enjoy the field trip.

This book reads like it might be the first magic school bus book (it's got a very long introduction to Mrs. Sparks, etc. and the kids have obviously never been on a trip with her before). The typical magic school bus stuff happens- the kids are shrunk and end up going through the water system and waterworks.
