The Magic School Bus® Kicks Up a Storm

Series: The Magic School Bus TV (Book #1)
by Nancy White, Joanna Cole, Bruce Degen Illustrated by Art Ruiz

When Ralphie imagines that he's a superhero named Weatherman, the Magic School Bus becomes a glider riding an updraft into the storm clouds. Then the kids become part of the storm — turning from ice crystals to rain. It's a science lesson they'll never forget!

Designed to be accessible for younger readers, books in this series are easier to read and follow the plot of the popular PBS Magic School Bus television series.
