The Magic School Bus Makes a Rainbow

The Magic School Bus Makes a Rainbow

by Joanna Cole Illustrated by Carolyn Bracken, Bruce Degen

The class finds Ms. Frizzle inside her closet - playing pinball! But this is no ordinary pinball machine — it's played with light pulses, not steel balls. The Friz has to light up the six colors of the rainbow to win the game, and the kids want to help her. So they take the Magic School Bus inside the pinball machine.

Buckle up for this enlightening adventure and learn the secrets of color!
