Great for the first day of school, or great for a first time bus rider. I absolutely loved this book! The illustrations are amazing. The rhyming is wonderful. I will definately use this book is my classroom. This is perfect for a lesson on rhyming or illiteration. The book is about a bus that is a monster and all the students get picked up along the bus route. its uses rhyming with each sentence to describe the students going on board. Very Cute book! My favorite by far!
