The Bus for Us

by

The Bus for Us Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today is Tess’s first day of school and her very first ride on a school bus. As a multitude of vehicles—from fire engine to front loader—passes by, Tess eagerly asks, "Is this the bus for us, Gus?" Young readers will particularly enjoy knowing more than Tess as they identify all of the vehicles that pass by, and they will laugh at the ridiculous antics of all of the kids waiting at the bus stop. Bloom paints a brilliant cast of multiracial kids toting backpacks, lunch boxes, and show-and-tell pets, creating humorous subplots in this reassuring back-to-school classic.

"An everyday occurrence is transformed into a special, silly event that is both clever and sweet. Kids will get a kick out of knowing more than Tess. . . but what they’ll really enjoy is the watercolor art alive with hijinks and humor."—Booklist starred review
