A Review of the MSB's "Makes a Rainbow" Jul 16, 2005
Ms. Frizzle does it again! With her remarkable bus, silly wardrobe, and bag of tricks, she teaches the gang alot about light. This time she teaches using an amazing laser-powered pinball machine.
The kids can't wait to play -it is pinball afterall-but the problem is that Mr. Rule (the principal) is about to take the game away if they can't `win' a game. To win, the students must light up all six `colored eyes' at the back of the game. This requires that they split the incoming laser light and bounce the various frequencies/light colors around.
The children win, of course, but not before they learn about wavelength, prisms, and reflection and refraction.
Four Stars. These books are very educational, but they are not the easiest read-alouds. (I read them to my 3 and 5 year-olds anyway.) In this case, the topic is rather complex AND I would suggest that you use this book as a supplement to the Video.
**See the `Search Inside' Excerpt page for an example of reading level. Certainly young children will not be able to read them.
Fun Book Mar 27, 2005
My children enjoy the MSB books that are based on the TV show more than the original ones. Since MSB doesn't come on very often when we can watch it, we love to read the books.
This is an excellent book about colors. The kids also learn a little about light. I highly reccommend it.
Skip this one Mar 24, 2005
I love the magic school bus series and find most of them superb. This one, however, is tedious, repetitive and confusing. Not worth a look.
