But here's the main reason I came to review this book... To warn everyone that the font that was selected is horrendous. It hurts my eyes to look at it. I am being serious and literal when I say it caused my eyes pain. I am not a font guy, so I can't tell you what kerning mistakes were made, I can just tell you that this font is designed to injure you. I would've felt more comfortable reading this book in comic sans.
he sees a dozen of school buses whenever we go out for a walk. when he read this book for the first time, he seemed fascinated to find out where these buses were going.
he's very interested in traffic lights, so he gets all excited when we get to "Stop" and "Go" pages. he points and babbles!
the book shows people lining up for the bus and the scene; i use it as a reference when we go to a toddlers' program and it helps him wait in line for his turn.
the book also has a scene parents picking up kids; my boy gives me a hug as he points at the mommy and the boy hugging in the book.
there are not many words on each page, but there's so much to talk about on each page with my little one!
Great book for a young toddler fond of buses.
So: my toddler loves buses. He loves everything to do with buses. He loves real buses, toy buses, songs about buses - need I go on? He deeply loves this bus book. He is not, shall we say, a terribly discriminating bus connoisseur. On a scale of one to five, he gives this book several hundred stars. I like the book because he likes it, although I'm not sure it will outlive his first fascination with buses.
My husband, on the other hand, is rather more critical. He hates the art, both because the perspective is inconsistent and because the style is so very 1970s. There's no story, as such, just captions of the illustrations on each page. I think he would give it two stars.
