Marilyn Singer's rollicking, rhyming picturebook comes just in time for back-to-school.
With just one or two bouncing rhymes per page, this tale of a dedicated schoolbus is perfect for readalouds and storytime. The bright, cartoon-like art is friendly and large enough for big groups to view clearly.
This would be a great title for kids who are feeling a bit nervous about being at school all day: the schoolbus is shown as a dependable friend who picks them up from the safety of home, takes them wonderful places (like zoo field trips, farms, etc) and then waits patiently until it's time to scoop them up from school and get them safely home again.
Best for preschool groups or older kids with a special interest in vehicles. It really would be a shame not to use this excellent title as a "back to school" storytime opener.
