" This has very simple vocabulary for younger children. It is a nice way to introduce opposites. " said.

" Use repetition. Sentences are short, so have kids repeat after you. " said.

" For a toddler who gets excited about all large trucks, this seemed a natural fit and it did seem to suit her. I like that the words are sparse, although I wish the illustrations were a little less flat. " said.

" Basic story with very colorful pictures about school buses taking kids to school. It very simply allows kids to see where school buses come from and the journey they take throughout the day. I think this would be great to read to those first time school bus riders. " said.

" Wow, this is one of the simplest children's books I've ever read. Big bus, small bus, go to school, come home from school. That's basically it for twenty pages.If your child loves school buses, they will love this book. There are school buses on every page. 32 on the first page! " said.

" I love Donald Crews' books and this is one of the better ones. We read it in my preschool special education classroom each year and the simple language, paired with all those pictures of buses, is always a hit. I particularly like the little details, like the father who is putting his child on the bus and waiting to hug her when she comes home. " said.

"So The Boy is currently obsessed with buses. All things larger than a Ford F-150 are buses—dump trucks, excavators, Greyhounds, oil tankers—you name it. This might be because those are two of the words that he can say ("bus" and "yellow") that are recognizable by people other than his Mama and Papa.

Anyway, I made the mistake of showing him this book while at Borders. So now we own it.

All told, it's pretty straightforward and linear. Buses pick up kids, take them to school, and then home again.

What disturbs me is the mysterious attrition that takes place w/r/t/ the buses in the story. At the beginning there are 32 buses. At the end? A mere 16. Something is amiss and I haven't quite put my finger on it.

Update 11/23/2013: this book was loved to death between the two of them. RIP School Bus book.
