I remember it like it was yesterday.
My son was heading to Kindergarten just 2 years ago and my Momma heart just couldn’t bare putting this sweet child on a School Bus. It wasn’t an option, as we were a one car family and had to take advantage of bus transportation. I knew he would get used to it, but being an overly anxious child with OCD…. he didn’t.
Every day, for months, he came home crying. My heart broke into pieces over and over each time I saw a tear run down his face. Eventually he got used to it. I, often, wonder if there was anything else I could have done to help him overcome this fear and anxiety about riding the bus.
That’s why I was so excited when I discovered this book:
Get ready for a rip-roaring, rhyming ride that celebrates all things drivin’ with a special spotlight on a kid’s four-wheeled best buddy–his school bus! When you’re a kid, your school bus can be your very best friend. Morning, noon, and nighttime, too, that golden buddy is at your service. Ready to drive you and your friends to and from school!
I’m Your Bus by Marilyn Singer is helping us get ready for school this year. My daughter is entering Kindergarten this year and I’ve been reading this book with my three children. They just love seeing “The Bus” with his own personality. With every flip of the page, children can get a first hand look at what a Bus would say and how a Bus would act. My daughter just laughed at the thought of “The Bus” hanging with his friends (other vehicles) in between pick-ups and drop-offs.
If you’re a worried Momma when it comes to putting your children on the bus this year this is the book for you! The pictures reel in your child’s imagination and help ease that “First Day on the Bus” anxiety.
