An old school bus is destined for the scrap heap, until someone who recognizes its true potential, takes an interest. Through humorous dialogue and pictures, it conveys an important message about not making snap judgements about others based on appearances. This lighthearted story is simple enough for younger students to understand, and the older elementary crowd will appreciate the humor.
Liz Cooper is a former educator, so this is a “super” read-aloud for classrooms and home libraries. Possible discussion connections include community helpers, problem-solving, kindness, self-esteem, and making new friends.
