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 is one of my child's favorite books, and has become a regular gift to give. It's so simple! The bus stops at various locations, and different people get off the bus. The pictures are lovely, with a very Japanese aesthetic (making sense given the author). There is a lot of detail in each picture, allowing you to spend more time on each page describing what you and your kiddo see if you'd like.

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.

Our 16 month old LOVES the bus. I was trying to find books for him that spoke about public buses and not just the school bus. At each page of this story he points at the bus. I really love the detail on each page - we'll be able to talk about the pictures for years to come.

Our 2 and a half year old grandson loves this book. The illustrations are just complex enough that he had to hunt to find things at first, and now he knows the whole book. Woe to anyone who tries to skip a page! Perfect for the ready to read set

This is an enjoyable book for my two-and-half year-olds. It tells the story of where the bus stops and who gets off. They like the illustrations too. We like it, but prefer the author's My Friends more.
