The Magic School Bus Science Explosion game has kids on the edges of their seats as they compete to be the first to set off the volcano in the center of the board. Along the way, they learn about scientific fields of study.

The players can’t help but erupt in smiles when they see the illustration of the exuberant science teacher Ms. Frizzle, a familiar character from Scholastic’s Magic School Bus book series penned by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen.

Recommended for kids ages 5 and up, Science Explosion is really two-games-in-one, with more reading required in one version of the game and matching and strategy applied in the easier version. The set includes a laminated, two-sided board; volcano; bowl; measuring cups; and game cards — for two to four players. You supply the baking soda and vinegar, for lots of good, clean fun.

The Magic School Bus Science Explosion, $29.99, www. TheYoungScientistsClub.com.
