This book was written by an admin on an amazing homeschool group I am part of. I cut my teeth here and learned most of what I know from admins and members (past and present). There are so many resources out there, this book will help you remember what it is really about. Take a deep breath, relax and ENJOY your children!

My review as posted on Amazon and Goodreads:

I will so be reading again! I love the down to earth tone of the book. I typically avoid Christian slanted (not “anti” just some of them get soooooo repetitive, old, and BORING) books but yours is not like that at all. It shows you and your beliefs without any of the usual “you must do blah blah blah”. Your family shines through, you even made me cry ::sniff:: I would have no problem recommending this to people of any religion or belief. Just felt like having a conversation with a supportive, more experienced homeschool mom who just wants the best for my family as she has done for hers.

fun with magic school bus

Payton's out spaceWe are discovering the fun of Magic School Bus. Miss Thing recently did her monthly Scholastic shopping and picked out a Science Kit, the solar system. The only thing she enjoys as much as anatomy is our solar system.

We spent a couple days reading the book The Magic School Bus Blasts Into Space, followed by some serious solar system constructing, minus Pluto which she found very upsetting…. and that will lead to yet another adventure!

Hubby hung her solar system from the ceiling, which led to SOMEONE somersaulting off the edge of the couch while playing with Saturn. Thanks to her newly discovered gymnastic skills, she made a wonderful landing and survived, so did Saturn.

Oh, by the way, the Magic School Bus series is on Netflix!

There is also a wonderful site full of great resources for Magic School Bus for you to check out, I know I am!  http://www.freehomeschooldeals.com/free-magic-school-bus-unit-study-resources-homeschoolers/
