The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2013 A joy of a book for its simplicity and vigour. When a mum and her little boy miss the bus there follows a journey in a queue of all kinds of vehicles of every different colour. Follow the red car, yellow car, red bus, blue bus and more as they travel through an ever changing landscape in this wonderful road adventure.
Red Car, Red Bus by Susan Steggall
When a mother and her son miss the bus, a kind-hearted stranger comes to their rescue. Follow the red bus along the road until it is joined by a red car. . .And then a yellow car. . . And then a yellow van. . .Until the road is filled with a colourful sequence of different cars, trucks, bikes and buses.
A beautiful and simple picture book, with its endless trail of traffic and steadily unfolding street scenes, introduces the concept of patterns to the youngest child. With its ever-growing traffic queue and entertaining background storylines, Red Car, Red Bus provides plenty to amuse young readers while also being very suitable for early years education.
This book is a good one for an adult to share with a child, savouring the pictures together, but it is large and robust enough for showing and chatting about to a nursery group.
A marvelous celebration of ordinary life, the kind that lends itself to repeated readings. Publishers Weekly
