The Buse Ride

The Bus Ride
Marianne Dubuc
Clara is riding the bus by herself for the very first time. She's on her way to her grandmother's house. She amuses herself by watching the other people on the bus, sharing her cookies, befriending a little wolf, and helping to catch a thief. She arrives at her destination to find her grandmother waiting to hear about her adventures. Colorful illustrations fill the whole page with the story in small print at the bottom. The pictures are soft, pencil type drawings that help create a story all on their own.

Children will love the whimsical take on red riding hood. Parents will enjoy the less scary version of the story. The readers can also play guessing games to try to find out how each picture is different as they turn the pages. The book would work well in a classroom setting, as it could be used in several forms of literacy learning.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
