THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS PRESENTS DINOSAURS is a photographic nonfiction companion book to the original bestselling title, THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS IN THE TIME OF THE DINOSAURS. IN THE TIME OF THE DINOSAURS from the bestselling Magic School Bus series taught thousands of kids about the T-rex, triceratops, and stegosaurus. MAGIC SCHOOL BUS PRESENTS DINOSAURS will expand upon the original title with fresh and updated content about all the incredible extinct creatures from millions and millions of years ago. With vivid full-color photographs on each page as well as illustrations of the beloved Ms. Frizzle and her students, the Magic School Bus Presents series will enthrall a whole new generation of Magic School Bus readers.
Their propensity to stick with tried and true faves is the only reason I was surprised at my kid’s reaction to the Magic School Bus Dinosaurs game. While have fond memories of Mrs. Frizzle and her off kilter teaching methods, my kids have none. Is it even on TV anymore?
The Magic School Bus Dinosaur game from LeapFrog was the surprising winner this week. I don’t know about you, but my kids are usually most excited about games and books that feature characters from their favorite movies. I tell you, they will play with Kung Fu Panda on it.
My boys love their LeapPad tablets (read my review of the LeapPad Ultra here) and they love dinosaurs, so finding “The Magic School Bus Dinosaurs” learning game was perfect. It is a game that is not only educational (yeah for dinosaur trivia and tasks) but also fun (dino games and exploring!)
