English: The Magic School Bus
Summary: The Magic School Bus is a Canadian/American Saturday morning animated children's television series, based on the book series of the same name by Bruce Degen and Joanna Cole.It is now not available on Discovery Kids,but on ZeeQ.It is notable for its use of celebrity talent and combining entertainment with an educational series. Broadcasting & Cable said the show was "among the highest-rated PBS shows for school-age children." Although it has long since concluded its original airing, the series still airs reruns on a variety of different networks worldwide. The Magic School Bus is a series of children's books about science written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen. They feature the antics of Ms. Valerie Frizzle, and her class, who board a magical school bus which takes them on field trips to impossible locations such as the solar system, clouds, the past, and the human body. The books are written in the first person from the point of view of an unnamed student in "the Friz's" class. The class pet Liz, a lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. Since the Magic School Bus books present scientific facts in the form of stories in which fantastic things happen (for example, a bus turns into a spaceship, or children shrink to the size of blood cells), each book has a page at the end detailing in a humorous manner which parts of the book represented scientific fact and which were fanciful storytelling.
