The Little School Bus

Product Description:

PreSchool-Grade 1-With a frog as the driver, a variety of animals trickles onto a school bus. First, "a little goat/wearing his new winter coat" appears; then, "A pig in a wig" gets on, and others follow until, finally, "a sleepy sheep" climbs aboard. At the end of the day, they return in reverse order for the ride home. Paparone's colourful, detailed illustrations, a bit murky in places, are laid out on double-page spreads, providing lots for little ones to marvel at, both on the bus and off. The vehicle weaves through suburban neighbourhoods and into the city as animal residents carry out their daily chores. Children will shout out the identity of the animals as the rhyming text describes them, and then happily chime in on the repetitious refrain after each animal climbs onboard: "riding the bus to school, to school,/riding the bus to school." Great for preschool storytime, a back-to-school read-aloud, or just a fun story about animals.
