About the Book

Overview

Today is Tess’s first day of school and her very first ride on a school bus. As a multitude of vehicles—from fire engine to front loader—passes by, Tess eagerly asks, "Is this the bus for us, Gus?" Young readers will particularly enjoy knowing more than Tess as they identify all of the vehicles that pass by, and they will laugh at the ridiculous antics of all of the kids waiting at the bus stop. Bloom paints a brilliant cast of multiracial kids toting backpacks, lunch boxes, and show-and-tell pets, creating humorous subplots in this reassuring back-to-school classic.
