Back-to-school season is right around the corner and Scholastic Media
is bringing its Magic School Bus to the Leapfrog
App Center for the very first time.  The Magic School Bus: Dino
Shuffle app, for the Leapfrog LeapPad, will be available for

Players will be able to shuffle through a Dino Deck compiled by

Children can then test their dino knowledge in two exciting,
fast-paced, and highly replayable games.
