Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

As a bus progresses on its route to the garage, where it will park for the night, various travelersactors, commuters, familieshop off at their stops. When a number of riders is named (for example, 10 baseball players disembark and head for a playing field), readers can count along, but more often, the text suggests different objects to pick out from each spread. Gomi's pictures are beautifully composed, using white space to carve out both the horizon and the shape of the bus. Gomi's illustrations will appeal to children for their simplicity, and to adults for their strong graphics. No ages given.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 Simple full-color, double-page illustrations couple with a straightforward text to chronicle the daily travel of a bus and its many different riders. Children will easily recognize the people and places, which range from a stop at an old church where two sightseers get off to a baseball field where ten players jog off. A "subtext" invites readers to find another unrelated person or object in each illustration. Clean shapes, effective use of negative space, and minimal text create an appealing, open format. The book lends itself to sharing with individuals or in small groups to stimulate discussion. It may also serve to introduce a variety of concepts such as travel by bus, counting, and different activities that people enjoy. Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library

Format: Board book
This attractive and simple book offers lots to look and and lots to discover. Our son will not outgrow it for a long time -- right now he is interested in looking at the busses and cars. Soon he can join in the simple "I Spy" game that the book presents. He has yet to discover the beautiful colors and shapes, and interesting places and people. I highly recommend this book for 18 months to kindergarten age. Fun for parents, too!

I frequently give this book as a baby gift, and get reports back that it always becomes the baby's top favorite book, the one they want to read everyday over and over - and since it's mostly a visual book that lets the child explore objects and places, and has art-quality illustrations, parents enjoy it too. Taro Gomi's books don't aggressively teach, but just let a small child wander slowly and curiously through the pages, noticing things of interest, always discovering new details.

This book is consistently one of my 16-month-old daughter's favorites. I am sure she'll learn to enjoy it even more as she learns more concepts like numbers, places and action verbs, but right now she's happy to point to the objects she recognizes in the very detailed illustrations and name them (ball, car, dog, kids, helicopter). I really enjoy the illustrations, too, so this is a book I'm always happy to read with her.

We have many Taro Gomi books, in both English and Japanese. His graphics are always amazing, and this gem is at the top of the list. The English translation here is great (as opposed to the dreadful "Where's the Fish?"), and my child loves the story of the bus as is winds through town. Especially nice is the touch near the end, where WE get off the bus at our house, placing the child into the story, then the driver gets off the bus at the end. Cute and snappy, a work of art that will engage child and parent alike.

Format: Board book
I bought this book for my son after seeing it in the library. I have a used board book version, which is in FANTASTIC condition. I find this book is EXTREMELY durable, and would recommend getting a used one if this is for your own child.

My son was ONE when we purchased it, and loved it enough to ask for it every day for several months. Now he's almost 2.5, it was at the bottom of the pile for awhile, but now he loves it all over again. WE both love the colorful pictures, and there are cute things to look for, things that you may not notice the first few times you go through it. LIke the driver in one car has a somewhat angry expression, like he wants to run over the lady that is crossing the street. I think it's funny, it's not obvious and cruel, just something that as a grown up, you may notice, that flies over the child's head. Or like, on the hospital page, the patients are Green... get it? green, sick? Too cute! ANd one guy is wrapped up in bandages like a mummy from head to toe. Each page has things it asks you to point out. But you can easily find more things for the child to notice. My son just loves it. I think it is especially appealling to kids that like cars, trucks and busses. But girls will like it too... it's not full of those things, but there are enough of them in there. It is so colorful, and it's fun to ask the child to find an orange car, or a yellow house. There's even a little kitty cat wandering in the crowd on the marketplace page.

This is a very sweet book for a child... I'd say from One - Four years old, but I have no doubt mine love it enough to thumb through it himself when he's older, or maybe it will be a book he learns to read from. Great overall, I'd say one of our top 10 books! It's my favorite book in the "it doesn't have a deep message, and doesn't rhyme" category.

Format: Hardcover
My daughter has loved this book since she was a year old. At 2.5 years she still loves seeing where the bus goes on its route, who gets off, who misses the bus...She loves to answer the simple questions on each page. (Parents can always ask different questions when they get bored). The text and pictures are just right for the pre-speaking to pre-school age child. There is something on every page to captivate even the youngest child yet, there are so many interesting little details that older children remain interested. And for parents, get this, the bus stops at a movie set and who's in the director's chair but Akira Kurosawa with his white hat and sunglasses. Oh and who's that bearded actor? Toshiro Mifune. No kidding. This book is THAT cool.

The whole family loves this book. My son, who is almost a year old, has been pulling this specific book down from the shelves for many months now, and he clearly favors it above all the others. The artwork is beautiful, interesting, and colorful. Each spread has several different objects of interest, so you can ask your child to look for different things every time you read it together. Each spread also has a different palette featured, so it's a great book for teaching colors. One of the challenges with baby books is keeping the parents' interest, but this one does not get tired because there are so many interesting details to each spread. It's a classic!

My 20-month old loves this book, and with good reason. It's a fantastic example of a book that can grow with a toddler; at first he was most interested in the buses, then started noticing the cars, moved onto the trees, and now loves all the little people. It's a sweet book, gentle in tone. My toddler will spend 15 minutes at a time reading this one with me.
