The Lovereading4Kids comment

Former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen will delight all readers with this hugely enjoyable and easy to chant rhyming picture book. Riding a bike, going far in a car or, when it starts to rain going in the train are all fun. So too are the more imaginative thoughts of riding on a fish, sitting on a cloud or flying to the moon in a hot-air balloon. But, best of all is the bus! Just because - ‘the bus is for us!~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

The Bus is for Us! by Michael Rosen

A lively rhyming picture book about transport by poet and former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen, author of We're Going on a Bear Hunt. Small children take great delight in things that go - whether by bicycle, car, boat, or plane. And best of all is taking the bus, because the bus is for everyone!

Complemented by beautiful artwork from Gillian Tyler, this playful book will captivate little listeners and is perfect for reading aloud.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
