Edition: Hardcover -- Plot Summary and Book Review
- "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" by Emmy Award-winning writer Mo Willems is a funny picture book that children in preschool, kindergarten and first grade will have great time reading and interacting with. When a bus driver takes a break, he asks readers to keep an eye on his bus and the pigeon. What a determined pigeon! He reasons, begs and bargains. Of course, readers always say no to the pigeon's request to drive the bus. The frustrated pigeon finally falls into a temper tantrum. But he cheers up after seeing a huge tractor-trailer truck drive up. The pigeon's feelings and emotions are amply expressed in this simply illustrated Caldecott Honor Book. The humorous story is great for reading aloud.
