“My cousin Herb drives a bus almost every day!“

blurb

This is a very silly book with amazing illustrations. I would read this to my classroom of kindergarteners or first graders. It doesn't really teach a specific lesson or has a specific theme, but it is a book that children can interact with and predict what is gonna happen next.

This is a Caldecott Award-winning book. It is one of my favorites and a cute and silly book. It is about when the bus driver takes a break from driving, a pigeon takes over the wheel! Crazy! He is a crazy driver!

Don‘t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems, 2003. Caldecott Award Winning Book. I absolutely adore this book and the way the author displays the pigeons character throughout this book series! The humor within the book really appeals to younger children. This is a great approach to the idea of right and wrong and yes and no!

“Hey, can I drive the bus?” This book would be awesome to read to very young children. They could almost have a conversation with the pigeon as they can respond to this with “NO”.

blurb

I love all the pigeon books. Every child does. This book should be added into every class at some point.

Award: Caldecott
Review: This book tells the story of a pigeon who really wants to drive a bus but isn‘t allowed. Throughout the story, the pigeon tries different persuasive techniques to get to drive the bus and is eventually successful and is able to drive the bus. This book is told in a way that the audience members are the ones responsible for not letting the pigeon drive the bus.

This picture book uses a minimalist approach with simple lines and illustrations with clean cut text fonts to focus on the main point in the story. Its pale colors often help show the single image on each page and let the reader really interact and feel welcomed into the story! Great read when involving the class!

blurb

This book shows a cute story of involving the reader throughout the story and learning of what the pigeon wants to do, so very badly! Its compelling and would be very enjoyable for all kids to be read to with!

“Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!“ by Mo Willems, 2003. Caldecott Honor Award. This book is very humorous, especially for young children. Something unique about this story is the interactive concept. The reader is having a conversation with the pigeon and get to tell him “NO!“ when he asks to drive the bus, which is very fun for kids.

a quote I liked in this book was when the pigeon said “i‘ll be your best friend” when bribing him to drive the bus. It sounded like something I would say when I was little.

blurb
cparsley

This would be good for kids who ride the bus and have trouble with it, or kids who like the bus. This would be good from probably 1-3rd grade.

Don‘t let the pigeon drive the bus won the caldecott honor. I liked this book because it sounded like a kid wrote it.

“Hey...“

blurb

I think this book would be appropriate for toddlers but any older age not so much because of the limited vocabulary usage.

Caldecott Honor Book. This book was an interesting read because of the way it was written. It was written how someone would talk to you. The flow of the book is very fast compared to some other children stories. The illustrations are simple but meaningful.
