Synopsis

My Bus by Byron Barton

My Bus is a lively celebration of vehicles and transportation, occupations, pets, and basic math concepts. The busy bus driver in Byron Barton's preschool tour-de-force has a job to do. He drives his bus along his route, picks up the cat and dog passengers waiting at the bus stops, and delivers them to their destinations-which in this case include the airport, the harbor, and the train station. Along the way, children are introduced to the concepts of addition, subtraction, and sets. A surprise ending of sorts-what will happen to the very last passenger?-makes this a great read-aloud for story time and bedtime. A companion to Byron Barton's critically acclaimed picture book My Car and a standout addition to this beloved author's body of work. Sure to appeal to fans of Richard Scarry, Donald Crews, and books about cars, trucks, and things that go! Supports the Common Core State Standards

Reviews

An informal primer on addition and subtraction ...[with artwork] made for grabbing eyeballs. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) There is so much here for repeated readings (and there will be repeated readings). -- Horn Book (starred review) Animals! Vehicles! Counting! Yes, the preschool trifecta is in place. -- Booklist Perfect for independent readers but can also be shared one-on-one or with a group. -- School Library Journal (starred review)

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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.
