Synopsis

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.

Reviews

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

About the Author

Susan Steggall

Having initially trained as a graphic designer, SUSAN STEGGALL became a primary school teacher and taught young children for several years. After having her own two boys, she began work in a school library where she enjoyed finding out about new authors and illustrators and selecting beautiful new books for the shelves. As her boys grew up, she started making all sorts of pictures for them of the cars, trucks and trains they found so fascinating. After lots of experiments, the idea of using torn coloured and textured paper evolved. Susan lives in the New Forest in Hampshire.

Her other titles include The Life of a Car, On the Road, Rattle and Rap, Busy Boats and Red Car, Red Bus.
