To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Scholastic is re-releasing the ten original Magic School Bus titles in paperback. With updated scientific information, the bestselling science series ever is back!

Arnold has swallowed the Magic School Bus! Now, instead of seeing an exhibit of the human body at a museum, the class is taking a look at Arnold's stomach, his intestines, his bloodstream, and more from the inside on this heart-stopping fieldtrip - one the reluctant Arnold would be happy to miss.

Ms. Frizzle brings teaches the students about the human body by traveling through Arnold's body. They learn about the body parts and how each one works by visually seeing it. This book teaches students about the mouth, the stomach, the heart, intestines and so much more!

Ms. Frizzle brings her class to a museum to learn about the human body. She shrinks the students and bus and enters into one of the students body. They learn all of the body parts and how they work while they are inside of him. This book can help students with imagination, and is a fun way of teaching them about the human body.

In this book Ms. Frizzle takes her students on a trip inside the human body. One of th most fascinating parts is that the body they enter is someone from their own classroom! Ms. Frizzle and the class learns all about the human body and how it works as well as the anatomy of the body. Good to have for science lessons to connect to.

Age appropriateness: intermediate Genre: Science FictionMedia: Watercolors, inkThis is a good example of science fiction because we see the real world overlapping with fictional pieces. The magic school bus¿ trip into the human body reveals facts about it but it is impossible for a bus full of children to shrink and travel inside the body. It is a great way to show students the workings of the human body and many projects can branch off of this book

This is one of many books in the classic science series for kids. It's pages are not only filled with scientific information, pictures, and adventure stories, but also comic-book-like arrangements, maps, and interesting facts. This series allows students to delve into the world of science in a fun and light-hearted way. (Watch the television series as a supplement!)

Genre: Science Fiction/ InformationalReview: This is a great example of science fiction because it takes place somewhere that you cant actually go. The technology that Mrs. Frizzle uses to go into Arnold's body does not actually exist today. As the class takes a field trip through the human body they learn a vast amount about how the body works and the various parts. Since there is information that is actually teaching the students about the body it is also considered and informational text. Point of View: This book is told in 3rd person omniscient. We know what Mrs. Frizzle, Arnold and all of the students are thinking all of the time. Unlike other texts were the thoughts are in the main text, this book gives each person a thought bubble as they are going through the human body. This helps to keep the reader interested but also learning about the information that is being presented. Media: Acrylic

Another crazy and exciting adventure with Ms. Frizzle that lets the student explore the inside of the human body. I liked this book, I always loved watching "The Magic School Bus" on the tv when I was in elementary school.I would read this book while we are studying the human body. The students can use this book to do research on different organs in the body, tell what our Red Blood Cell do, and much more.

The Magic School Bus carrying Ms. Frizzle and the entire class shrinks and is accidentally eaten by Arnold, and journeys through his body. I liked this book it had alot of information. It was very interesting. I liked it a lot.The students could watch the movie version. And then discuss which body system is their favorite and do a project on it.

The Magic School Bus series is a information fictional book. Every book is filled with information on the topic. Not only are the words descriptive but the pictures illustrate and show maps of the topic. For instance, in this book the students make comments about the organs and have educational information in it.The illustrations are not as artistica as they are accurate. The models in the classroom, the outrifts Ms. Frizzel wears all contribute to the topic they are studying. This focuses the reader on one topic and allows their eyes to wonder around the page.

Arnold is once again subjected to Mrs. Frizzle's special treatment as the magic school bus tours his body. The book focuses on how food is digested and turned into energy, though it touches on other body systems.

A crazy teacher named Ms. Frizzle takes her class on a wild adventure to the inside of a classmate's body. Inside the students learn about the digestive system and blood cells. This book is exellent for a classroom who is learning about the human body. A teacher could read this book before teaching a unit on the digestive system and then go into further detail that the book covered. This book is a fantasy because nothing in this book could physically happen, although the facts about the human body are realistic. This book could also been an informational book since they are explaining about the body. The setting in this book is necessary for this story because it is all about the human body and the setting actually takes place inside the human body. The setting couldn't be any better.

Our five year old chose this book with a gift card and we love it! The pictures are engaging, the story is an adventure, and so educational. We were unaware of how much he remembered from this book until he shocked his Grandmother by explaining what red blood cells were! The book was such a good investment, based on solid science that we are going to purchase more.

Ms. Frizzle's class is learning about the human body. When Arnold is left behind on a field trip Ms. Frizzle and the class go inside Arnold's body. Into the mouth and down the esophagus Ms. Frizzle and the class go. They go to almost every part of the body. They also go to the brain.
