OK, so a book that starts this conversation is GREAT Sitting at traffic light in car, looking at the sunset 5 yr old Mommy did you know, the sun is a giant ball of gas Me Why, yes it is thus ensues a conversation on the size of the sun compared to the earth, other planets in the solar system, etc When I asked her if they were talking about the sun solar system in preschool, she said no, she was reading about it in the Magic School Bus book.Can I just say AWESOME Doesn t hurt that OK, so a book that starts this conversation is GREAT Sitting at traffic light in car, looking at the sunset 5 yr old Mommy did you know, the sun is a giant ball of gas Me Why, yes it is thus ensues a conversation on the size of the sun compared to the earth, other planets in the solar system, etc When I asked her if they were talking about the sun solar system in preschool, she said no, she was reading about it in the Magic School Bus book.Can I just say AWESOME Doesn t hurt that they also watch the MSB shows occasionally as well good reinforcement of the topics A wonderful read from my childhood, one I d certainly suggest for other youngsters Whilst it is not my all time favourite childhood read I can still recall all the details of this one meaning it certainly left a lasting impression upon my young mind And isn t that what we want with children s books, for them to leave a positive lasting impression
