The Magic School Bus Gets Crabby

The Magic School Bus Gets Crabby

by Joanna Cole, Kristin Earhart Illustrated by Carolyn Bracken

Ms. Frizzle's class is on its way to a pool — a tide pool. The kids spot everything from seaweed to seashells. But then they run into some real crabs. It's time for a crash lesson in tide pool life, and the kids find out quick that it can be a real rush. Climb on the Magic School Bus and learn about the tides and hermit crabs and much, much more.
