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!

I would use this book to help children to adjust to coming to school and riding a school bus for the first times. The illustrations, and busy routines of how the bus o saurus gets the children on to the bus is an exciting and adventurous way to help children to feel better about the whole process.

The text in this book is VERY clever and has a great rhythm and sound about it. I'm not sure how much of it my 22-mo-old son understands, but he loves reading it regardless. The pictures are kinda different- they're a bit surreal.

A cute book from a local author.

The concept is really unique so I definitely have to give the author credit for that.

Kind of a strange book of the "What do boys like?: Dinosaurs and Cars!" ilk. Still, I like it well enough, and the rhythm is fun.
