9781620914410: The Bus for Us

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

About the Author:

Suzanne Bloom is the author and illustrator of the picture books featuring Goose and Bear: A Splendid Friend, Indeed, a Theodor Seuss Gei

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1-Though the bright watercolors spread against crisp white backgrounds are eye-catching, what really draws children into this book is the repetitive chorus, "Is this the bus for us, Gus?" as the front part of a different vehicle is introduced on every other full-page spread. An older child, growing ever exasperated, kindly explains, "No, Tess. This is a-" (taxi, tow truck, backhoe, etc.). There are other treats for the book's viewers, too. Another child joins the line with every turn of the page and some youngsters will notice that the words "bus stop" occasionally become jumbled. Many readers will enjoy the unspoken story as the newly arrived children and their possessions begin to intermingle. Though the story is deceptively simple, teachers will be able to think of dozens of ways to share this book with preschool and beginning-reader audiences.
