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
