Critic Reviews

"Miss Frizzle's class is doing a project on the ocean and learning about the kinds of animals and plants that live there. Of course, a class trip is in her plan book. Those familiar with the inimitable school bus and its previous fantastical journeys are in for another treat; those who are not are in for a wild introduction. With her usual dash and aplomb, the teacher gathers her students, they board the bus, and off they go on an adventuresome trip to the ocean floor. All listen as she informs them about the geologic strata they pass, the flora and fauna at the various depths, the unique interdependence of the undersea world, and in turn, how its survival depends upon humankind's actions on land....The vibrant text is well researched and accurate; it is presented with such humor and lightness that everyone will wish for a seat on that magic bus."

Be aware that only the first 15 minutes or so of this audiobook is the actual Magic School Bus story. (And it's not one of the better stories, in my opinion, only so-so.) The remainder - or as much of it as we could stand to listen to - is a long list of ocean "facts," (the first few being things like "buses can't really drive into oceans") all read by the "teacher," as though she were reading student reports. This is BORING, at best, and tedious and irritating, at worst.
All in all, very disappointing. I'm sorry I bought it.

Not an hour long

I should have read the previous reviews. I bought this book for children to listen during naps and bedtime 🌙
This is short, and very tedious. Like another reviewer stated before, there is only about twenty minutes of actual story and the rest of the time is Mrs. Frizzle reading 'facts' . It would have been better to buy the actual book to read out loud before bedtime. Which I will do in the future for The Magic School Bus series.
