Get on Board the Magic School Bus

The Hoover Public Library has always had the Magic School Bus on its shelves -- the original picture book series as well as spin-off beginning reader and first chapter books. We also have MSB DVDs in the nonfiction movie section of the Kid Zone. Sadly, we didn't have all 52 episodes . . . until now. They have released The Magic School Bus: The Complete Collection, and we purchased two copies of the 8-disc sets. You can check them out one disc at a time. And the good news is that you can keep nonfiction DVDs for 3 WEEKS. That will give you plenty of time to absorb a busload of scientific information. Here's a breakdown of which episodes are on each disc. You can also see what scientific topic is associated with each episode.
