The Magic School Bus in the Time of the Dinosaurs

The Magic School Bus in the Time of the Dinosaurs

by Joanna Cole, Bruce Degen Illustrated by Bruce Degen

The classroom is decorated as Dinosaur Land, but Ms. Frizzle-inspired by an archeological dig-craves a more authentic experience. The Magic School Bus turns into a time machine and transports the class back millions of years to an adventure where they learn about dinosaurs, their habitats and diets, and even a Maiasaura nesting ground.
