Title
For the first day of school vacation Ms. Frizzle goes on at trip to Egypt with her pet iguana. Ms. Frizzle wanted to see all the land marks that Egypt's home to. Ms. Frizzle made the trip like the kids were her students.She called out there names for attendance before they got on the plane. The flight to Egypt was long so when night came almost everyone fell asleep. When they were above Egypt everyone on the plane was able to see the Nile River and the deserts around it. Ms. Frizzle could not wait to go Egypt. She opened the emergency door and gave parachutes to everyone on the plane. Then she hopped off the plane and everyone else followed. Herb floated into Cairo while everyone else landed near the pyramid. Since Herb left, Ms. Frizzle continued to educate the tourist (Jamal Rasheeda their aunt and Emily and her parents.) like Herb did. Although when they reached the ground, all the modern stuff disappeared. They traveled back in time to ancient Egypt. Ms. Frizzle and the tourist went to an ancient town and visited the market. Then they visited a school where the Egyptians learn to read and write. After school, they followed a boy named Beku home. Since the crops were ready to harvest Ms. Frizzle and the tourists helped pick them. When the Nile River flooded everyone was happy because it helped the crops grow. Afterward they helped build a pyramid by dragging the stones up a ramp. When the pharoah came they tagged along back to his palace.After they attended the party at the palace they went on a boat ride. When they reached land they were back in modern time. Then they rushed to the plane and caught up with Herb. The next morning everyone was saying goodbye to one another. I enjoyed the book because I think it would be fun to visit Egypt and now I know what I can experience
