The magic school bus : inside the EarthThe magic school bus : inside the Earth, by Joanna Cole ; illustrated by Bruce Degen

This book taught me some new stuff about rocks in the earth’s crust, the illustrations were really cool and the kids talking in this book made me laugh so hard! I also learned some new rock types and names too.
I liked this book and I would recommend it for kids 7+

Kids’ Club Review by Tiana: The girl who drew butterflies : how Maria Merian’s art changed science

Syndetics book coverThe girl who drew butterflies : how Maria Merian’s art changed science by Joyce Sidman.

I normally don’t read picture books, but this picture book is probably one of my favorites. Firstly, it was a non-fiction book and I really like those, I’m into fantasy too, but non-fiction is my favorite. The illustrations are also really nice.

Ivy + Bean : what's the big idea?Ivy + Bean : what’s the big idea?, written by Annie Barrows ; illustrated by Sophie Blackall

This book was about two girls who entered the science fair at school. They took a long time picking their project. Finally they made a decision to complete a project to get their parents more relaxed in nature. As a result of their project, their parents grew to like nature after all.

This book was a good read. I liked this book because I like science and Ivy and Bean books are always interesting.

I like that in this book it can let you learn these amazing things just by reading a picture book. year 2 and under read these books and they love them! they are so easy to read and once you read one a little fact pops into your head and you can walk around with it for the rest of your life if your child is 7 and under I recommend getting these books for them. please listen to my advice.
Yours;
Isabel the great.

Kids’ Club Review by Chyoe: The magic school bus

The magic school busThe magic school bus, Joanna Cole

It’s an adventure, I like the part where the bus was going up in the sky and onto the clouds. I had so many pages to read. The starting was crazy – the teacher’s crazy, The bus is going into the sky. And when the children came out, they were on the clouds, they were inside the raindrops when they were falling back to earth. At the end, the teacher didn’t realise that something strange had happened.
