The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen

Magic School Bus and the Climate Change ChallengeTalk about a timely book on a very important and current subject! The Magic School Bus series is great for helping kids (and grown-ups) understand very big and sometimes complicated topics, and this one is no exception. This book caught my eye because of the subject matter and the sweet polar bears floating away on a little piece of ice on the front cover. Of course, as always Ms. Frizzle takes her class on another very cool adventure to learn more on the subject – this time about global warming, climate change, alternative energy, conserving and recycling – all covered in a fun and inviting way. Even though the jury is still out on some of these issues, this book would be really valuable to teachers and environmentally-conscious parents wanting to talk and learn about some of the issues facing our world. And the great thing is, you could use this for younger kids too (maybe 6 or 7), since Magic School Bus books can be read with or without all of the extra captions and charts. This is a really great resource!
