CriticasGr 2-5-Through its Mariposa imprint, Scholastic has brought together its Spanish translations of the Magic School Bus series, originally published in English in the 1990s. Cole's creative texts and Degen's zany illustrations complement one another perfectly to create a series of adventures that students love. Each story begins in the classroom where Mrs. Frizzle, the wacky elementary teacher, is planning yet another field trip to expand her lessons. The Magic School Bus converts the students into junior explorers. Used as an addition to science lessons or as stand-alone read alouds, these fact-filled and enjoyable books are always a hit with elementary students. Degen uses watercolors and ink to masterfully render detailed illustrations that allow readers an insider's view of the natural world around them. Handsome additions to every collection. Bookstores that stock them will sell out quickly.Paul M. Kienlen, Alicia R. Chac"n International School, El Paso, TX Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
