I cannot count the number of times Little N has asked me to read this one. The story unfolds as a guessing game – showing a small portion of the next vehicle as Tess asks her brother if the vehicle is the bus. A great vocabulary builder and perfect for transportation enthusiasts.
I picked this up because I loved the colorful cover, and I knew Little N loved buses. I didn’t have time to read it before we got into the car, but I gave it to Little N to peruse while in his car seat. I heard him chime bus, plane, train, and boat. I wondered what he was babbling on about. Well, when we got home and read the story – sure enough there were all those modes of transportation. Pair that with a couple of cats and dogs, and you have one fine story for toddlers, not to mention a bit of simple math going on!
A classic – simple pictures with a simple story – Little N had no trouble following this one, and he enjoyed picking out the garbage truck among the school buses. Would be a good story to revisit if Little N ends up taking a bus to school – however, it seems school buses are becoming an anomaly around here.
The kids are anxious to get on the bus for their first day of school. A simple, satisfying story replete with rhymes. Little N asked for this again and again.
