WOW is what I would like to describe these books with. As I grew up I had the games The magic school bus and loved them for the awesome information they give, but sadly to keep going back to that information to learn over and over you had to get back to that spot you were already at so it made it a little harder. When this set came up for review I thought it would be a neat way to introduce my children to the awesome way of learning about new things, with Ms fizz and the gang in the magic school bus.
The book have the same children as the games I played and they have little note pads in the pages with information, there are Frizzle facts to read and so much information to gather and learn about. Lots of speech bubbles from the children's mouths for the different things on the pages, My son LOVED the human body book and took off with it, as he has been learning about the human body at daycare and we have many human body books but this one has so many different facts and more information than any of the books we actually have.
The pictures in the books are great, and done well, they relate to what the book is about and what each page is talking about, like the wild weather book there is a page about wind power which is a wind farm, fits the page perfect for what is going on in all the words. Each book has a contents page and a words to know page which I think is awesome, the words to know page is for those big words we don't really know what they mean so it gives a meaning of those words to help the understanding, this is awesome for children.
I would be very inclined to recommend these books to friends with children, I would also love to see them sold as a set, as I get worried with books like this when I go to find a set one book of the set is sold out so I can't get the whole set which annoys me, so being able to buy as a set price and a single price would be awesome.. I'm glad to say that these books have a much loved spot in our family with lots of use left in the for the learning of my 6 and soon to be 5 year old. And lets be honest, $12 for a book like this, isnt that bad of a price

The author chronicles the lives of three generations of Chinese men in America.
Woven from memory, myth, and fact - a journey into the hearts and minds of Chinese men in America: the grandfather who slaved in the Sierra Nevadas on the transcontinental railroad; the father who danced down Fifth Avenue, like Fred Astaire, on days off from the laundry; and the son who returned to China to find release from his dead mother's angry spirit. Here is an accomplished storyteller's remarkably beautiful tale of what they endured in a strange new land.
