Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In this easy-reader spin-off of Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen's "The Magic School Bus" series, Ms. Frizzle's students are missing a leaf for their poster, so they hop on the Magic School Bus to find it. When the vehicle turns into a bird, they all become small. In the course of their search, they fall from a tree and use the leaves as surfboards to reach the ground. The missing leaf lands on Arnold, and they return to school and to their normal size. The simple text has two to three sentences per page with dialogue bubbles for conversations among the students. Some pages include student work that explains how leaves change colors, seasons, and types of trees. The colorful illustrations are humorous and expand on the text. Readers will enjoy the children's jokes and the action. Lois Ehlert's Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf (Harcourt, 1991) offers a more factual look at fall; The Wild Leaf Ride could supplement it.-Rebecca Luhman, Greece Central School District, Rochester, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
