Want to see some super excited kids? Tell them the delivery man just dropped off the complete Magic School Bus series. They will jump up and down with joy and drop everything to watch an episode (or two or three) right away. (Mine did!) Whether you are already a huge fan of The Magic School Bus or are looking for a great way to add some sneaky science learning to your classroom or home, Scholastic’s collection of the complete series from Magic School Bus is something I know you will be excited to find!
For many years, our family has enjoyed the Magic School Bus book series. We devoured them. Then, we learned that they were available in videos. I watched for them at thrift stores and garage sales and had collected a few, all on video. But, now, Scholastic Storybook Treasures has released an 8-DVD collection of all 52 episodes, The Magic School Bus: The Complete Series! (Visualize a happy dance here!) We were so excited to have the complete series available in a single-boxed set. There were episodes in that collection that we had never even heard of! My kids thought it might be Christmas in October.
As we watched each episode, it was interesting to see how it influenced our conversations, the questions the kids asked AND the things they chose to do with their free time. After watching The Magic School Bus Takes Flight, suddenly my children are zooming through the house making airplane noises, building airplanes with Legos and creating landing strips with blocks. They even informed their Dad, when he came home, that they were flying because they had lift and flaps and air pushing up on them. It was terrific! I love it when my kids love learning. The Magic School Bus is one way to get your kids excited about learning science.
