About the Book

Overview

Tess is excited. Today is her first day of school and her very first ride on a school bus. Waiting at the bus stop with her older friend Gus, Tess eagerly asks, "Is this the bus for us, Gus?" as each vehicle passes by. From fire engine to front loader, Suzanne Bloom introduces young readers to a variety of vehicles through a simple text and spirited illustrations.

Reviews

* "An everyday occurrence is transformed into a special, silly event in a story that is both clever and sweet." --Booklist, starred review

"Encourages beginning readers to go it alone, but will also work well as a read-aloud. . . . You'll definitely want to get on board this bus!" --Library Media Connection
