Item description for The Little School Bus by Carol Roth...
Here comes the school bus, beep, beep, beep! Step right up and take a seat with a sleepy sheep, a squirmy worm, a hairy bear, a quick, quick chick, a fox with socks, a pig in a wig, and a goat in his coat, and ride the bus to school, to school, and ride the bus to school! The bouncy, rhyming text and the bright, witty pictures make The Little School Bus a ride that children will want to take over and over again.

Colorful and fun to read Mar 1, 2008
My 2 year old is fascinated with school buses. He spots them on the road when we are out and about and so I got him this book. It was an instant hit. The illustrations are wonderful- very full of detail and he loves to name all the things in the pictures. The prose is a delight to read to him, almost like a little song. So cute! We both love it. I would prefer it to be in a board book format for his age, but he loves it nonetheless.
Perfect Book for an ESL class Jan 4, 2007
I teach elementary English as a Second Language students. This book is perfect for a read aloud. It has a lot of vocabulary and they can join in on the parts that repeat. We loved it!
A keepsake!! May 25, 2005
I came across this book at a booksale. I fell in love with it the moment I layed eyes on it. The storyline is really adorable. It reminds me well of "The Napping House" by Audrey Wood. My 21 month old son is so excited to see this book. He always look forward for storytime. The illustrations are very bold and artistically done. Very colorful and lively. Kids of all ages will surely love this. This is a keepsake. I have a paperback copy and I'm getting a hardcover copy as a back-up in case it gets worn out of daily repeated readings.
Super story! Jul 23, 2004
This is a fantastic book! My sons (age 3) love it...from the sing-song rhyming text to the wonderfully detailed illustrations. They find something new in the pictures every time we read the book. The predictable text also lets them "read" the story to me. This book is a must for any home library!
A must for little bus enthusiasts! Nov 5, 2003
My son -- then just over a year old -- loved the library's copy of "The Little School Bus" to death, and we had to buy it (taped-up pages and all). The text has a wonderful cadence -- lots of repeating -- and fun, colorful characters. The art is witty, and a pleasure to look at (for parents), with lots of "I Spy" details to keep the child's attention through repeated (and repeated and repeated) readings. I'm surprised that I'm the first to recommend this book. It's a gem! (We now search out books with art by Pamela Paparone!)
