Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
When Miss Frizzle's class studies dinosaurs, they are swept up in a "bus-a-saur" ride that takes them back in time. They emerge from the bus-a-saur in dinosaur eggs and land in a nest, where they hatch. A baby dinosaur with a duck bill hatches at the same time. The kids name him Quackers and then focus on the pterosaurs flying overhead. While they are distracted, Quackers walks away; thus, the body of the tale focuses on how the kids can find him and keep him safe. The kids bring facts to life as they make observations about various dinosaurs. The prehistoric habitat and dinosaur traits are covered. Finally, the students find Quackers eating plants, and they get him back to the safety of his nest. Readers will find that in addition to enjoying an exciting adventure, they can use stickers that are provided to dress up the pages. Author Jenne Simon also includes funny dinosaur jokes, and kids are sure to repeat them happily. The tale ends neatly with the kids traveling back to their classroom and wondering what new adventure awaits them. Dialogue, illustrations, and content are age-appropriate. Based on The Magic School Bus books written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
