All of us have been children, and we know what it’s like to be afraid of something new. But, being afraid of the unknown doesn’t just stop when you’re a child. That’s whyFunky Yellow Bus is a great book for kids and their parents to read together — everyone can relate.
When Miss Sassy Pants saw that I had Funky Yellow Bus to review, she immediately set up a classroom. We were treated to a reading and illustration showing (she’s a really great and very dramatic reader). I wondered if, after finishing such an expressive demonstration, Miss Sassy Pants had caught the point of the book.
I asked her what it was about: It’s about a girl who is afraid to ride the big yellow bus for the first time.
I asked her what the little girl learned: She learned that even though it was different, it wasn’t as scary as she thought it would be. It was fun!
And then I asked her if she liked the book: I loved it! And these pictures are great!
There you have it.
Funky Yellow Bus is Miss Sassy Pants approved. It teaches quite the valuable lesson about embracing new experiences – not just the scary school bus that comes for Kindergarten. Like Miss Sassy Pants said, the book teaches us that we can try something different and although it might be nerve-wracking at first, it can really result in a great time!
Funky Yellow Bus is written by Robin B. Rosenberg and illustrated by Bernie Freytag.
