Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cassandra Morris, Polly Adams

Children Ages 6+ • 30 mins. • Unabridged • © 1990

The delightful energy of a Magic Schoolbus adventure radiates through this audiobook! Given the multiple entry points into the production—the story itself, the fictional students’ comments and reports, and the illustrations—it takes a skillful narration to pull it all into a cohesive whole. Cassandra Morris and Polly Adams deliver. A class trip in the Magic School Bus takes students not to the planetarium, as expected, but into space. This is experiential learning at its best! Morris and Adams sparkle as the students—testy, anxious, bossy, and bickering—and the quirky Ms. Frizzle. Factual information about the solar system is provided subtly and effectively. Sound effects—that of an asteroid hitting the bus, for example—complement the adventure. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2011]
