This book had a lot of good use of rhyming words, rhyming the animal with what it was wearing (goat in a coat) and so on. The story kept a good flow and had repetiton...this would allow students to know what was going to be said next. I've seen kids even read along with the teacher out loud due to knowing the repetition.

Good for grades prek-1

Rhyming words, repetition, addition and a beat keep this book moving right along! The bus driver follows his route and picks up the little learners for school. Each animal is distinct with a rhyme: a goat in a coat, a pig in a wig, etc. The animals can also be counted as they hop onto the bus. This book would also make a great flannel story.

Theme: Back to School
Additional themes: books with a beat, transportation, rhyming

Reviewed from a library copy.

Cute book. Repetitive but great for children to read along with you. I was able to point at the animals while reading yo my niece.
(4.5 stars)

A catchy cumulative story about a group of animals riding the bus to school.

I wish I knew what tune this book would go best with, perhaps "The Wheels on the Bus?"
THis book is really cute for pre k, definitely for kindergarten. It helps with counting and memorizing. Also a great book for rhyming words and descriptive adjectives.
