Gus, the Dinosaur Bus

Children heading back to school will enjoy this lovely story about a dinosaur who serves as a city school bus!

Gus, the Dinosaur Bus

Gus, the Dinosaur Bus
, written by Julia Liu and illustrated by Bei Lynn, is a sweet tale about a large, lumbering, green dinosaur with a very special job – as a school bus! Although the kids love having Gus as their bus (who wouldn’t love riding a dinosaur to school?), they quickly discover that a dinosaur might not be the ideal mode of transportation. Poor Gus knocks down traffic lights, gets tangled in phone lines and bumps his head on overpasses.

The principal has no choice to pull Gus off the road. But have no fear, Gus finds another way to be useful around the school. Hint, he does it with a splash!
Little M and I enjoy reading this book and imagining what it would be like to ride a dinosaur around town – we have decided it would be a lot more fun than riding in a car, train or even an airplane! This is a lovely story and a perfect back to school read for children, whether or not they ride the school bus!
