A rhyming book (I love rhyming books) about the school bus and the animals boarding it. Janey loves this book (as did Patrick, Andrew and Mattew-thanks mom!), I read it again and again to her.
I am reading this book chapter by chapter to Patrick (7) before bed. It is survival story of a young boy left to fend for himself, and he encounters many adventures and problems along the way. The chapters are short, and the story moves quickly, which is perfect to hold attention. And the cover is scary, which counts for everything.
