Summary: (from my library’s catalog) This lyrical picture book follows one boy’s early morning bus ride to school and the many things he observes.
I picked this book because: I totally fell for the cover! And there’s nothing better than a book that lives up to it’s cover! I love the sheer simplicity of the text, the bright illustrations so full of energy, and the sense of wonder the author-illustrator has for everyday things. A gem!
Resources/activities: Take more deliberate time to get where you are going, and to note what you see along the way. Repeat!
