The Magic School Bus Rides The Wind by Anne Capeci

The Magic School Bus Rides The Wind (Science Reader)The Magic School Bus Rides The Wind by Anne Capeci

My rating: ★★★☆☆

The Magic School Bus Rides the Wind is a Scholastic Level 2 Reader, featuring "vocabulary and sentence length for beginning readers", according to the back cover of the book. It features the characters of the hit television show The Magic School Bus and endeavors to teach young children about wind.

In the story, Ms. Frizzle's class are building kites in class... but Wanda's flies away when they go outside to test them. As Ms. Frizzle takes her kids on a kite rescue mission, Anne Capeci uses illustration, narration, and factoids to teach about the nature of wind, weather balloons, how the wind spreads seeds, and wind energy and turbines.

I'd recommend The Magic School Bus Rides the Wind to parents reading to their toddlers or young children in the early stages of learning to read. It might be particularly entertaining to fans of the Magic School Bus television show, and I'd suggest it as a good opportunity to present the idea of alternative/clean energy to young children.
