Going On A Field Trip: Magic School Bus #Giveaway

Have you ever heard of / watched The Magic School Bus?
I guess I have been out of the loop, as I had no idea what it was about... 
I started hearing about it online and after looking it up, I see that it is an animated show that is very educational, teaching kids about math and science.
I am all about education... so I was eager to see an episode! 
We were sent a three pack of the Magic School Bus DVD: Field Trip Fun and Games.
It was so informative and Broxton was hooked into it as soon as it started!

The first one we watched was about BASEBALL and forces. 
Of course, it was neat watching Mrs. Frizzle get the kids all excited and then to watch the school bus go into the book.  I was sucked into watching it as well, as I wanted to know what The Magic School Bus was all about...   I am so glad I did, as Broxton is always talking about it now... When he passes a bus on the road, he always has to ask if I think it is the "magic" one!  

The Field Trip Fun and Games DVD is actually 5 hours of entertainment ( I tell you what, it sure did not feel like it.. You just get so caught up watching and learning, that it goes by really fast!)
Want to know one thing that I really enjoyed about the Magic School Bus?
There are some scenes that are totally made up, but it is made up to be able to explain the lesson better...  At the end of the episode, a "kid" will "call in" and get to speak to "Mr. Producer" in the phone call they will ask if such and such can actually happen and he will be honest and tell them no, that can't happen because of blah-blah... but then they discuss the things that do happen and why... So, even though the lesson is over, they are actually still learning.
