We own an entire shelf of Magic School Bus books. We have every type there is. Here are my recommendations:
You want to BUY the large rectangular books because they are loaded with tons of additional science facts presented in an interesting manner. Here are the titles:
The Magic School Bus at the Waterworks
The Magic School Bus Inside the Earth
The Magic School Bus Inside the Human Body
The Magic School Bus Lost in the Solar System
The Magic School Bus on the Ocean Floor
The Magic School Bus in the Time of the Dinosaurs
The Magic School Bus Inside a Hurricane
The Magic School Bus Inside a Beehive
The Magic School Bus and the Electric Field Trip
The Magic School Bus Explores the Senses
The Magic School Bus and the Science Fair Expedition
The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge
You want to AVOID the square books because they are nothing more than a rehash of the episodes. Think of them as a novelization of the individual episodes. Nothing extra, nothing special. I am not going to include a list of titles because there are so many of them, but a sample title is The Magic School Bus Blows Its Top.
The Scholastic Reader Level 2 books are good for the youngest readers, but again nothing compares to the large rectangular books. You will have to read those with your reader if s/he is at this reading level, but totally worth it.
The Chapter Books are good, similar to the Magic Treehouse series. I can recommend these books in theory, but in practice my kids were far more interested in (you guessed it) the large rectangular books. The Science Fact Finder Books (of which there are only three: bats, skeletons, field trip facts) are similar to the Magic Treehouse non-fiction books and are packed with relevant information.
I like the Ms. Frizzle’s Adventures series, which finds a way to use the Magic School Bus format and apply it to history. There are only three books in this series:
There is also a series of books centered on Liz, but I am unfamiliar with those.
BOTTOM LINE: If you want your kids to learn SCIENCE, get the large rectangular books. Have them watch the series (old and new). Note that there are also several tie-in science kits that are quite good.
