The Bus for Us

Submitted by Ms. Jill!
The Bus for Us by Suzanne Bloom. It’s Tess’s first day of school, and she is so excited to ride the bus for the very first time! She waits at the bus stop with her older friend, Gus. One at a time, many different vehicles appear around the corner. As just the very front end of each one comes into view, Tess asks, “Is this the bus for us, Gus?” Young readers can guess what kind of vehicle is coming, then chorus along as the next full-page spread reveals the entire picture: “No Tess. This is a... FIRE ENGINE!” The simple, predictable text and built-in guessing game will make this book a favorite for young vehicle enthusiasts. Bright watercolors of a taxi cab, tow truck, backhoe, and more parade across the page as Tess and her multicultural classmates wait and watch. When the “bus for us” at long last arrives, and it’s time to head off to school! See this book listed in our catalog
