Children’s Book Review: I’m Your Bus, by Marilyn Singer

It’s that time again!  And whether your oldest is just starting school, or your seasoned school kids are heading back, chances are there might be some butterflies on “back-to-school jitters” duty.  The new children’s picture book, I’m Your Bus (Scholastic Press) by Marilyn Singer is a sweet book that might help put your kids’ nerves at ease and get them excited about the adventure that awaits on the school bus.  From the publishers:

Get ready for a rip-roaring, rhyming ride that celebrates all things drivin’ with a special spotlight on a kid’s four-wheeled best buddy–his school bus! When you’re a kid, your school bus can be your very best friend. Morning, noon, and nighttime, too, that golden buddy is at your service. Ready to drive you and your friends to and from school!

Our family thought this was a really cute book, and we especially enjoyed the clever rhymes used to tell the story.  As a bonus, my 2yo has read it so many times with us that he now knows the word “bus!”

    My kids ride the bus. In fact we make sure that the home we are living in is far enough away to qualify for bus service before we move. I HATE sitting in a pick up line after school. I like to wait patiently in the comfort of my home for my young ones to return!

    Well, this year my oldest daughter will drive herself, but previously she rode with my husband who is a teacher at our local high school. Our middle daughter rides the bus because apparently being taken to school hampers her social life! I take our youngest one to school since all three are at different schools and she leaves later than everyone else.

    My nephews school does not have a bus so whoever has them in the morning, (mom, dad, aunts, nana or papa) drive them to school.

  • They take the bus although my soon-to-be 6th grader wants to walk. On nice days that’s fine by me!

  • My teenage daughter rides the bus. The rest of the kids walk to and from school.

    My kids ride the bus. I slowly worked up to it. With my first child I drove her and picked her up. Then in 1st grade I drove her but let her ride the bus home. Then for 2nd grade she rode the bus both ways and her brother started Kindergarten and he rode the bus on the very first day. Okay, that was a long answer to a simple question.

  • K. C.

    Today was the first day of kindergarten. We drove half way (it was so crowded) and walked the rest of the way.

    My son will just be starting kindergarten this fall, so I’ll have to say what I plan on doing…I will drive him to school and maybe (maybe, maybe, maybe!) he’ll ride the bus home..and that’s only because my younger child’s naptime falls when kindergarten lets out. We’ll see.

    P.S. I’ve been liking more and more of your giveaways lately. 🙂
    P.P.S. I’m glad you didn’t write this: “When you’re a kid, your school bus can be your very best friend. Morning, noon, and nighttime, too, that golden buddy is at your service.” Very best friend? But, hey, we always love art supplies at our house.
    P.P.P.S. How are your workouts going? I’ve been thinking about you lately while I’ve been at the gym.

    My husband takes my son to school in the mornings, and then in the afternoon, he rides the bus home.

  • Tracy

    My children take the bus!

  • Laurie L

    I used to drive my son to school. He is now in an online virtual charter school, so he walks (from his room to our home office 🙂 )
    I miss driving him to school though. It was a great time for us to spend together and talk about things that never seem to come up at other times.

  • My boys are homeschooled so they simply walk downstairs to our homeschooling area! Couldn’t be easier than that! No walking or taking the bus. No standing at a bus stop. Of course, we don’t have snow days either, but that’s a whole ‘nuther story! 🙂

  • Diane

    The first go to the sitters and then either walk, ride bike or are driven depending on their age and the weather,

  • Thanks for offering this contest. Hope we win.

    I drive or we walk depending on the weather.

    The bus picks up my first grader and I take my daughter to preschool-unless there are crazed mornings and I end up driving my son to school.

    My little guy is too small for school yet, but I will for sure drive him to school. I am paranoid.

    My daughter is starting preschool. In the morning, a bus will come pick her up (which is exciting for her as her gramma drives a school bus too) and I pick her up from school in the afternoons.

  • This is my daughter’s first year of school. She’ll be taking the bus both ways. Hopefully her experience will be positive.

    I drive my 8 yr old daughter to /from school everyday. We park 2 blocks from the school and walk the rest.

  • Christine W.

    Since it is still a distance to school and the bus does not come by our home, I take my daughter to school. It just isn’t safe to walk it from our home.
