    My generic review of the Magic School Bus books - We really love the series. This book doesn't have all the cartoony dialouge asides that the earlier books have. There are maybe a comment or two per page instead of full conversations. Some people hate that; I think I prefer it. The page is less busy. These books clearly explain a certain topic. There are often additional activities at the end of the book for further learning.

    I was excited to use this book in my stars lesson but it just didn't have the info I was looking for. It defines stars, shows different sizes, but doesn't go into color or why we can't see them during the day or even why they twinkle. Still, it has a place in the science center.

Review: I love the Magic School Bus books. They are great for teaching our students/children while imaginative and creative. I believe this book would spark a lot of questions and really grab my students attention. 5. 2-3 in class uses: -Students “buy” their own star. They choose a star, write a description about it, and give it a name. they can describe their star using facts they learned about stars in the book. -Students turn and talk. What would you name your star? What would it look like? Then, draw a picture of their star.

    This was one fabulous and very informing read. In this story, Ms. Frizzle takes her classmates to outer space to help them find out all about the stars. The classmates find it hard to believe that stars can be so old but discover that even a star that is two million years old is still a very young star. While they are in space, Horace Cope, the tv star, helps to lead them through their adventure with Ms. Frizzle. They discuss the gas and dust in the air as well as the age of some of the other st This was one fabulous and very informing read.

While they are in space, Horace Cope, the tv star, helps to lead them through their adventure with Ms. Frizzle. They discuss the gas and dust in the air as well as the age of some of the other stars and how long it would take to reach them. In the end, they end up buying a star for D.A. and name it after her. Then, they watch the star explode and share what happens when one explodes; another is born. Afterwards, they return to school and share with Dorothy Ann what happened. I would recommend this book for second and third graders because the content is very informative and would be useful in using them to help with lessons. The vocabulary can be understood by this age level as well as the content. The illustrations in this book, by Bruce Degan, are wonderful. They are very bright, colorful drawings that show a lot about the information in the book and help to understand the content. I gave this book four stars because it was a fun book to read and was helpful in learning about the stars in the sky.

    We've read so many of the stories in the Magic School Bus series - and our girls have loved them all. Sometimes they can be a bit of a pain to read aloud, especially if there is a lot of dialogue or extraneous notes, but we still enjoy reading them together and they are so interesting that it makes science fun. I love that! In this story, we learn a bit about stars. And while it's just a tiny fraction of the information available about stars, it helps to reinforce what they've already learned (f We've read so many of the stories in the Magic School Bus series - and our girls have loved them all.

I love that! In this story, we learn a bit about stars. And while it's just a tiny fraction of the information available about stars, it helps to reinforce what they've already learned (for example, that the sun is a star) and it expands their knowledge about how stars are formed and how far away they are. We really enjoyed this story and will continue to search out the few remaining books in the series we have not yet read.

    The Magic School Bus Sees Stars is such a cute and interesting book. I loved reading it when I was a child in school, and still enjoyed it 15 years later. Ms. Frizzle and her class take a journey into space to see stars after some class mates decided they wanted to see what a star looked like up close. They wanted to do this because they saw an add on television that was selling stars for just seven dollars and they needed to buy their friend, Dorothy Anne a present. After they went and visited The Magic School Bus Sees Stars is such a cute and interesting book. I loved reading it when I was a child in school, and still enjoyed it 15 years later.

After they went and visited the star they potentially wanted to buy they learn that it had been sold, they then decide on buying a red supergiant star! After buying it the star explodes, and the class learns about star age and rebirth of stars. I highly recommend this book by Joanna Cole. It is a must have in an Elementary classroom and in the library.

    The Brothers

    Dorothy Ann (D.A.) isn't at school today, even though it's her birthday! The children and Ms. Frizzle struggle to figure out what to give her and finally decide upon a star. Off they zoom into space to learn about all the different kinds of stars and how they are formed. Great illustrations. Dorothy Ann (D.A.) isn't at school today, even though it's her birthday!

    This is an awesome book to do a character study in. Since there are many Magic School bus books, you can use these books as an introduction to many different scientific concepts. This book would be a great book to introduce stars and what consists inside a star. This book can be used in any grade level.

    Little Miss and the Legomeister

    I love the Magic School Bus books. I've read quite a few over the years. Legomeister loved them a couple of years ago. He still checks them out sometimes, but he doesn't ask me to read them to him anymore. Now it's Little Miss who requests them. In this one, the Magic School Bus kids decided to buy a star, and visit them to decide which one they should get. I love the Magic School Bus books. I've read quite a few over the years.

    The Magic School Bus book series are great double duty books that work in literacy and in science! The Magic School Bus Sees Stars explores stars in a kid friendly writing. Common reading strategies like predicting, doing a picture walk, inferring etc. can all be incorporated in this book.
