Celebrate 25 Years of The Magic School Bus!
"Not many children’s brands can stand the test of time, entertaining and educating generation after generation. THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, is one such brand. This September, as children head back to their classrooms, they can hop aboard the world’s most famous school bus for exciting and unforgettable lessons as Scholastic Media re-launches to DVD the timeless, Emmy Award winning TV series.
On September 4, Scholastic Media and New Video, the distributors of the award-winning Scholastic Storybook Treasures series are partnering to release the perennially popular series in several configurations featuring all new packaging and never-before-released content. THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: THE COMPLETE SERIES ($79.95srp) brings together all 52 episodes of the program – including 30 which are available for purchase for the first time – on 8 DVDs. Featuring a striking 3D lenticular cover with new artwork that makes the vibrant characters leap off the page and that will encourage kids to ask the question “how did they make that?” , the collectible thin-pack set also includes a guide for kids with teasers, trivia and experiments, plus a Parents’ Guide with lessons and learning options. This interactive guide creates wholesome and healthy entertainment for the entire family."
What we thought: This comprehensive DVD set of Magic School Bus episodes is every teacher/homeschoolers dream! It is great for getting kids to understand basic science concepts in a fun and entertaining way. In my experience, Ms. Frizzle and the gang has been a huge help in explaining scientific subjects that I was having trouble getting across. The kiddos actually ask to watch these episodes outside of school time during their "free" TV time which is fantastic! This collection, along with our Magic School Bus books, will be an essential part of our science curriculum this fall! ABCD Diaries gives The Magic School Bus DVD Collection an A+!
