Hooray! The creators of The Magic School Bus
started a new series called Ms. Frizzle’s Adventures.
School Bus taught kids about science. This new series teaches about
history, and it’s equally fun and creative.
In Medieval Castle,
Ms. Frizzle, Arnold, and two workers from
a Castle Shop go back in time to a castle in England. There, they
withstand a siege and Arnold gets through enemy lines to send a message
to the lord of the castle. Meanwhile, we learn all sorts of facts
about castles and life in medieval times. This will be a great addition
to our library, making good reading for military kids who can visit the
local German castles.
This isn’t in-depth information, but it’s a good overview for kids, entertaining
as well as informative.
