The Wheels on the Bus…

    It’s time for school! For some children, it may be their first experience with riding the school bus. Here are a few friendly picture books to help out:

    • Axle Annie, by Robin Pulver (E PULVE): Axle Annie is the best school bus driver in Burskyville– especially when it comes to driving her bus up snow-covered Tiger Hill, the toughest slope in town. Because of Annie, the superintendent never has to declare a snow day. And that’s just why grouchy bus driver Shifty Rhodes hatches a plot to stop Axle Annie in her tracks!
    • The Bus Stop, by Janet Morgan Stoeke (E STOEK): Several kindergartners from the neighborhood gather at the bus stop and mount the steps for their important ride. They might be a little scared at first, but soon all turns to joy as the big yellow bus rumbles them off to school.
    • I’m Your Bus, by Marilyn Singer (E SINGE): Welcome to a day in the life of a school bus and his road-hugging buddies. Morning, noon, and nighttime, too, that golden four-wheeled friend is at your service.
    • The Little School Bus, by Carol Roth (E ROTH): Here comes the school bus, beep, beep, beep! Step right up and take a seat with a sleepy sheep, a squirmy worm, a hairy bear, a quick, quick chick, a fox with socks, a pig in a wig, and a goat in his coat, and ride the bus to school!
    • Molly Rides the School Bus, by Julie Brillhart (E BRILL): It’s the first day of kindergarten, and Molly is worried. She’s never been on a school bus, and she’s afraid she won’t know what to do.
    • School Bus, by Donald Crews (E CREWS): What is large (or small), bright yellow, and filled with students? School Bus!
