A bright yellow school bus is evocative of exuberant kids, gleefully launched spitwads, kind bus drivers, and of course school itself. In Donald Crews's School Bus
--written "for the buses, the riders, and the watchers"--preschoolers caught up in the whole school-bus mystique can follow the path of a school bus on its daily travels--minus the aforementioned shenanigans. Crews sticks with the basics, including only a few words per page, such as "Full buses head for school" and "Here we are." Adults reading aloud to children will be able to fill in the blanks and let kids make up their own stories within the framework of this book. Crews, creator of the Caldecott Honor book Freight Train
, and the sturdy, board-book edition of Truck
has proven himself to be an expert at conveying basic concepts to youngsters, and this book is no exception! (Baby to Preschool) --Karin Snelson
