Review: The Magic School Bus and the Science Fair Expedition by Joanne Cole

It's the 20th Anniversary of The Magic School Bus! Celebrate this groundbreaking series with the Friz's class as they meet some of history's greatest minds and learn what it takes to be a scientist.
What do Galileo, Isaac Newton, Louis Pasteur, and Albert Einstein have in common? They've all ridden on the Magic School Bus, of course!
Ms. Frizzle is back in action and she has a mission: her students need science fair projects - and fast. What better way to get ideas than to learn from some of the all-time greats? The class heads to the Walkerville Science Museum to see the exhibit on GREAT SCIENTISTS THROUGH THE AGES, where, suddenly, Galileo comes to life! He is about to make a great discovery, but he needs a ride home. Thank goodness Ms. Frizzle knows the way! (cont.)

K picked this book up from his school library. I have always loved The Magic School Bus and K has just started enjoying the books.
With this one there was so much information written within the bubbles that is seemed to deter K from actually listening to the story. 
The Magic School Bus series is just an awesome series of books because you learn so much information on certain subjects that it makes you want to learn in a fun way. When the kids of Mrs. Fizzle's class go to a trip to the museum well what do you expect it will be an adventure that scientists from the past come to life and give a bit of information on their selves and what they have discovered. 

Perfect read for all but especially good to have in the classroom!
