PreS-K—The Bunny Bus rolls into town, picking up more and more friends. Yet as the bus gets more crowded, with a "hop, hop, stop!," it becomes overwhelmed with celebrants and must cease its ride. However, the passengers are undeterred and fix up the Bunny Bus and share the load, and the book ends with an Easter parade. The illustrations are adorable and playful. The Bunny Bus's face droops more and more as the weight on the vehicle increases, until the bus stops with a smudged and dirty frowning face that is simultaneously cute and induces an audible sigh of disappointment. The charming spirit of those riding the bus, who pitch in and share the burden, results in a heartwarming message. Paquette's rhyming, repeating text makes this a suitable read-aloud, with audience participation at the refrain of "hop, hop, stop!" VERDICT For libraries looking to diversify their holiday collections.—Kaitlin Malixi, Bucks County Free Library, Doylestown, PA
"With a quick-paced gait, the rhyming verse celebrates every stop Bunny Bus makes...Illustrator Withrow's bright characters are reminiscent of Richard Scarry's, with jolly animals dressed in their Sunday best, resplendent with plaids, patterns, and purses." ―Kirkus
"Featuring cheerful, colorful art, rhyming text, cute animal characters, and an animated bunny-shaped bus,
this upbeat Easter-themed read is a playful secular take on the holiday...The detailed, Richard Scarry–like illustrations, incorporating varied textures and patterns, cartoonish touches, and springlike hues, have childlike charm and appeal, as do the brightly attired animal characters and expressive bus, perky ears, fluffy tail, and all. Playful details throughout and decorative endpapers with an embellished egglike motif add further flair to this entertaining celebration of the springtime holiday."―Booklist

"Withrow’s scraggly pencils, lined-paper backdrops, and splashes of color and pattern create an exuberant atmosphere that’s only briefly interrupted when the overloaded bus temporarily breaks down, sending carrots and painted eggs flying. It’s a novel spin on familiar Easter themes." ―Publishers Weekly

The artwork is okay, very similar to what a very talented elementary school child could produce with some colored pencils on graph paper.
I'm a picky reader but my kid loves mostly all books but this one wasn't a hit.
