Magic School Bus
The American Academy of Actuaries worked with Scholastic, well-known and regarded throughout schools in the U.S., to create this custom story that aims to support diversity in the actuarial profession by emphasizing the career possibilities that arise from math education.
In 2018, the Academy donated 45,000 copies of the book to Grades 3-5 students in Washington, D.C., public schools. Teachers received a classroom box kit, delivered by Scholastic, that included the storybook; a letter to parents on the inside cover; and a teacher flyer with lesson plan suggestions.
Each book is $4, plus a flat shipping rate of $3 for one to five books and $4.50 for six to 10 books. Please anticipate up to eight weeks for your order to arrive. To place a bulk order for more than 10 copies, please email email@example.com.
Also please note that your books will ship to the address listed in your member profile. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like your order to ship to an alternate address.
