    My daughter picked this book because she is fascinated by vampir

    My daughter picked this book because she is fascinated by vampires, bats, and monsters. It was a very "informative" type of book that focused more on delivering information than an actual story or plot line.

    I wasn't sure how she would take to it, but she loved it! We read a couple of chapters and she kept asking for more until we had read the entire book in one sitting. She seemed to enjoy the facts about bats more than the story.

    Once we had finished reading, we talked about the story what we had learned about bats. I was surprised by how much she could relay back to me. It probably helped that it was a subject that she loves, too.

    This is the only Magic School Bus book that we have read, and I thought it was pretty good. Sometimes I prefer to get my information from non-fiction books, but the informative story also worked fairly well.

    The Illustrations: The artwork was nice to have in the book because there were lots of drawings of bats to explain their anatomy and how they sleep. I wouldn't say that I loved the illustrations, but they served the purpose of the book well.

    It was awesome! I enjoyed it. I liked the questions in the back that gave more information in a creative way.
