The Lovereading4Kids comment

A bright, boldly illustrated and action-packed picture book ideal for reading aloud on any kind of journey including the one to bed. This story takes 5 kids on a bus to the sea. There are speech bubbles throughout with simple text enabling the child to share in the story by reading their own bits on the page. it's a fantastic book with plenty of things to identify as the story travels along.


Busy Day by Sally Grindley

A group of friends is heading off on the bus to have a day together at the seaside. On the way they encounter lots of vehicles and other animals all busily going about their day.


The rich detail in the rhyming words and lively pictures offers children lots to discover, with much to enjoy on every page of this book Junior
