I have been surprised and impressed with how much children are learning about being "green". Anything that can improve their understanding about protecting the environment in a way that is both entertaining and educational is a winner. Always a popular series, this "Magic School Bus" installment keeps the streak alive. When a book like "The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge" comes along, parents need to pay attention. Especially if your child, like mine, takes advice better from anything or anyone other than her parents. Reading about global warming really does help her believe that the things we've always asked her to do, like turning off lights or not running water, can make a difference to the health of the earth.
